Miss Mississippi's Outstanding Teen Pageant program began 11 years ago and has been highly successful. The program gives teens an opportunity to experience the excitement of participating in pageant competition and to pursue their goals by preparing them to compete in the Miss Mississippi pageant.
Miss America's Outstanding Teen program has had a monumental impact on our past, present and future. This program, an outgrowth of the Miss America Pageant, allows young women to develop their skills, both in scholastic achievement and service to others, as the grow and prepare for their future.
