Pageant Information

You have ideas and plans and goals - so much to offer the world - but how? Each year young women just like you choose to compete in the Miss South Carolina system. That's right! Many of them are just like you - yet they know that the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization is the largest provider of scholarships for young women in the Miss America system.

Whether you want to become a doctor or a dancer, an accountant or an architect, the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization has an opportunity that will help bring you closer to achieving your goals. To become Miss South Carolina, a contestant must first win a local competition and then compete to represent her local at the state pageant, a process requiring personal commitment, hard work and talent.

Miss contestants must be between the ages of 17 and 24. Teen contestants must be 13 to 17 and no more than a high school junior at the time of competition.

Teen contestants may choose to compete at-large at the state pageant. At-large state teen contestants must comply with the same minimum requirements as state contestants who won Local Pageants. Click here for the 2018 Teen At-Large Application.
