The Miss America Organization
In the summer of 1921, on the boardwalk of Atlantic City, an American icon was born. The organization
was a disruptor at its birth and continues to move women forward through education and social impact.
For the past 100 years, Miss America has been one of the country’s most recognizable household names
and has been at the center of everything from national trends to social movements to the birth of
television. The young women involved have made a significant difference in people’s lives through their
educations’ and charitable and community service endeavors, using this national organization and the
public facing podium it presents to educate millions of Americans on issues facing the nation.
The symbols of Miss America are meant to advance a continuing movement of showing how women can
be leaders, be givers, not takers, and to use education and a social conscience to dream big and inspire
change for the betterment of the world around them.
