The Miss Nationwide Pageant is excited to announced that we are returning to a “live” pageant competition for the 2017 pageant season and beyond.  While we were thrilled to be able to crown our 2016 titleholder via our original online format, we believe that by returning to our “live” format, our contestants will be able to experience the thrill of competing onstage in front of an audience of family and friends! Under new directorship, we will be slowly revamping our pageant system’s website, while recruiting new State Director’s to help move the Nationwide Pageant system forward.

Our mission is to honor and recognize accomplished, intelligent young women across the nation and allow them to use their personal platform to showcase their unique attributes and passions.   Our competition is exciting and unique, while placing a heavy emphasis on our young women’s dedication to their community service and personal platform.  Our areas of competition have been carefully created to showcase each applicant`s individuality, accomplishments, and potential.  Each contestant will also create an online portfolio that focuses solely on their personal platform that will be scored by our judges.


During her year of service, Miss Nationwide will speak to various groups and organizations regarding her personal platform of choice and will also promote the Miss Nationwide system as our face and ambassador.  Our areas of competition reflect what Miss Nationwide will be doing during her year: speaking, being a role model, and engaging and inspiring all those she interacts with.   The competition is open to young women between the ages of 18 and 30.
