Rich in history and social significance, the Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant 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 a preliminary to the Miss America Organization. It is held each June in Muskegon, MI and makes available over $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 program. Currently, the Miss Michigan Program has 27 local programs who send contestants to the state program, and Michigan sends one of our finest ladies to Las Vegas to compete for the Miss America Organization, where over $40 Million dollars in cash scholarships are made available to the 52 state 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 Miss Michigan speaking tour. Currently, there are approximately 350 volunteers in the State of Michigan who help make the local and state programs possible.
