The Miss Pennsylvania Scholarship Competition is a preliminary to the yearly Miss America Competition. Every year the Miss Pennsylvania titleholder represents the state at the iconic scholarship program.
Candidates advocate for social impact initiatives and demonstrate how they are qualified to represent their state.
Miss America was the first competition to offer a talent category and soon-after scholarship awards for young women to go to college to further their education. The Miss America Organization stands for empowering young women across the country to be the best they can be through leadership, talent, communication skills, and smarts.
The organization is one of the single largest providers of scholarship to young women in the world.
In order to part of this dynamic program, candidates most first win a local competition to be eligible for Miss Pennsylvania. There are more than a dozen local programs in the Keystone State, which can be viewed here.
