Rich in history and social significance, the Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant, located in Muskegon, MI since 1950, is a not-for-profit corporation that has maintained a tradition for many decades of empowering Michigan women to achieve their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum in which to express their opinions, talent and intelligence.
The Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant is an official affiliate of the Miss America Organization. It is held each June in Muskegon, MI and makes available between $40,000 and $50,000 in cash scholarships to the young women who compete in the scholarship program, making this the largest scholarship program available to young women in the State of Michigan.
In order for a young woman to compete in the Miss Michigan Program, they must have won a local pageant. Currently, the Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant has 32 local pageants who send a reigning contestant to the state pageant. Michigan then sends the new Miss Michigan to Atlantic City to compete for the title of Miss America, where over $40 Million dollars in cash scholarships are made available to the 53 title holders.
The Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant, a 12-month operation, involves fundraising, local pageant development, recruitment of contestants, statewide awareness, community service and the year long traveling of Miss Michigan. Currently, there are approximately 350 volunteers in the State of Michigan who help make the local and state pageants possible.
