Ms. of America

One of American Pageants’ national titles, the Ms. of America Pageant was designed specifically to provide recognition in a positive setting for women of any age, marital or parental status. We recognize achievement doesn’t end when women get married or have children. Therefore, it was very important for us to expand into this division. While the achievement is there, there is always room for growth and development and our program provides that opportunity for all. In short, the event is a significant step to encourage continued success as an adult. It recognizes women who have been acknowledged for their scholastic and/or professional accomplishments, community service achievements, leadership abilities, and personal achievements and/or accomplishments. The pageant’s six judging categories are designed to provide a fair judging format which focuses on all potential areas of achievement. The event includes fun, friendship, and memories to last a lifetime! As you discover more about American Pageants, we hope that you will discover the positive influence that being a part of the organization will have on you and your future endeavors. We welcome you to come and experience our program for yourself!
