A Tradition of Empowering Women


Rich in history and social significance, the Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant has for many decades maintained a tradition of empowering Michigan women to achieve their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum in which they can express their opinions, talent and intelligence. It has been located in Muskegon, Michigan, since 1950 and is a not-for-profit corporation providing scholarships to deserving young women.

The Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant spans three nights of competition and is held in mid-June. The public is welcome and encouraged to come and enjoy the talents and beauty of the 30-plus contestants who compete for the title of Miss Michigan.

The contestants compete in the areas of talent, interview, evening-wear, lifestyle and fitness in swimsuit, and an on-stage question. Contestant are evaluated individually in these areas by a panel of five judges with an overall score determining the top ten contestants, and ultimately the one who will be crowned Miss Michigan.
