The Miss District of Columbia Competition is a preliminary event whose purpose is to select the young women (Miss District of Columbia & Miss District of Columbia’s Outstanding Teen) who will represent the District of Columbia in the upcoming Miss America and Miss America’s Outstanding Teen competitions. An emphasis on education, talent and the performing arts is what distinguishes the Miss America program from other pageants. In addition, the winner and top 5 finalists are awarded a scholarship from the Miss District of Columbia Scholarship Organization. The Miss District of Columbia Scholarship Organization’s main mission is to provide candidates with the opportunity to pursue their personal, professional and educational goals. While Miss District of Columbia Scholarship Organization’s primary responsibilities are to raise and award scholarships, the District of Columbia Scholarship Pageant also provides the young women of the District of Columbia opportunities for growth and achievement.
