2015 Titleholders
Performing at the 2016 Pageant

Four Points of the Crown


Each participating candidate must select a social cause as a platform which they present to the judges and to their community. Many contestants stay involved with their platforms long after competing which is a great benefit to our society. In 2007, the Miss America Organization founded a national platform, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals which contestants need to raise money and awareness for. This is the way to ensure that those participating in our program are service oriented individuals who want to make a different in our world.

It is not “queen for a day” but “service for a year.”


Miss America began in 1920 as a beauty pageant but that was the old pageant. Today, we are looking for a real woman. Not one who has been overly trained in pageants with the perfect walk, the perfect talk, the perfect smile, the perfect hair and the perfect wave! The judges will be looking for someone who is relatable to everyone, young and old including her peers and is a good role model for her community. She needs to be well-rounded and strong in all categories, not just one.

True beauty comes from the inside and will shine through.


The Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program is an opportunity for local young women to receive money to further their educational goals. We are a preliminary to the Miss Oregon and Miss America pageants. The Miss America Organization is the leading scholarship provider for women in the entire world. At our local level in 2018 we made available over $7000 to contestants in scholarships.

Loans are repaid, grants are given, scholarships are earned.


In addition to becoming knowledgeable and involved with pertinent issues in today’s society, contestants have a chance to learn public speaking and interviewing skills. This experience is invaluable.

Not everyone can walk away with the crown, but everyone can walk away a changed individual.
