Welcome to our Open Preliminary Virtual Pageant Portal!

We will be hosting "Open Preliminary" Pageants to qualify delegates who are located in a state without an in-person preliminary for the International Pageant. Virtual Pageant activities will be held via our Google Meet Video Conference (similar to Zoom).  Participants can apply for any open state, regional or country title, including Latina to qualify to compete at Internationals on September 9. 2023 in New York City.

All applications are subject to Eligibility Rules.

How to Compete for a Preliminary Title:

  1. Applicants must be registered members of Miss American Teen.  If you, or your minor child, are not a member, join here for free. 

  2. Registration Form:  To apply for a title in your Division, complete the Registration form here and pay the registration fee of $375 (Sr. Division) or $175 (Jr. Division). Upload a photo of yourself. This should be a headshot, or waist-up photograph.  Be sure to use a photo that is clear with good lighting.  Upon registration, you will receive a delegate handbook to prepare for the Preliminary. 

  3. Virtual preliminaries require three submissions:  1) a delegate introduction video, 2) fitness attire walk video, and 3) evening gown walk video. Videos should be in 9x16 (Instagram Story) format and no longer than two (2) minutes each. Personal introduction should be one (1) to two (2) minutes. Videos should be submitted as soon after registration as possible, but at least 24 hours prior to Interview Day.

  4. All delegates crowned at the Preliminary must accept their titles with the requirement to compete at Internationals.  Be sure to review the other costs of participation at Internationals (travel, lodging, etc.) in advance of applying.

  5. Prize package:  Winners will receive a state crown and custom sash (via mail in 2-3 weeks) and paid entry (Sponsorship Fee) to the International Pageant. Winners must attend the International Pageant as a condition.  Delegate must provide own transportation to and lodging at host hotel (at our discount rate) and any additional activities during their stay.
