Become A Contestant
Welcome! Congratulations on taking the first step in a life-changing journey. We are thrilled to have you as part of the Miss D.C. family. The mission of the Miss District of Columbia’s Outstanding Teen Organization is to cultivate and encourage excellence in today’s young women.
Founded in 2005, Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Inc. has become one of the top scholarship providers for teen girls in the United States! All of our participants, on the local, state, and national levels, have been the recipients of valuable scholarship assistance upon graduation from high school. In just a few short years, we have made available almost $4,000,000 in cash and in-kind scholarships. We believe that education is key to a person’s success and we are proud to be able to assist so many outstanding teens with their college expenses. Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Inc. has been organized to encourage positive achievement by helping to nurture and build the scholastic achievement, creative accomplishment, healthy living, and community involvement of our nation’s youth.
The Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Organization has also established community-based initiatives and mentoring programs aimed at helping our nation’s youth build character and gain the skills necessary for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, community and business leaders, as well as participants from the national competition, the Organization continues to implement programs aimed at helping young people develop strong values, leadership skills, social conscience, self-worth and conviction about their own potential.
The Organization’s mentoring and community-base initiatives are available to all young people (male and female) between the ages of 13 and 17. The Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Organization has been awarding scholarships to individuals on the basis of academic merit and civic and social achievement. The following is a comprehensive overview of what to expect as you and your family begin this experience. Please feel free to email us any time with any questions you may have. We look forward to working with you!
