How to Enter

There are two options for entering The Miss Teen America Pageant. 

1. Enter and win your state pageant.

Please visit the state directory to find out if your state has a pageant.

2. Receive an appointed title.

This gives you all the benefits of a state titleholder, without having to compete in and win your state pageant. To receive an appointed title all you have to do is complete the online application, send us your photo and pay your $50 non-refundable application fee.
