BUT WHAT WILL NEVER CHANGE? A GREAT HISTORY OF EMPOWERING WOMEN AND THE EXTRAORDINARY GROUP OF SMART, TALENTED INDIVIDUALS VYING FOR THE JOB.
The WINNER will be California’s representative in the MISS TEEN USA® Competition or MISS USA® Competition who then goes on to compete in the MISS UNIVERSE® Competition! The Miss Universe Organization will award the new Miss Teen USA a $10,000 scholarship to be applied to continuing education tuition or other education expenses (books, etc.) at an institution of her choice. A $5,000 cash prize will also be awarded upon the completion of her reign.
The contestants will need an evening gown, an interview-appropriate outfit and either a swimsuit (Miss) or an activewear outfit (Teen) along with casual clothes for rehearsals, and one little black dress for the opening number performance.
The scores from the preliminary phase are totaled, and the contestants with the highest composite scores advance to the semi-finals. The semi-finalists compete on stage in activewear/swimsuit, and evening gown and a Top 5 is selected by the same methodology. An on-stage question is posed to each finalist by the host, and the judges make their selections for Winner, 1st Runner-Up, 2nd Runner-Up, 3rd Runner-up, 4th Runner-Up.
For many girls, this was the start of a fabulous career in beauty, fashion, acting, modeling, spokes modeling, public relations, marketing and more!
