In order to compete in Miss World America 2020 national competition, you must first win your state pageant or become a state delegate by participating in Miss World America State Titleholders’ Competition.

Identify a Miss and Teen delegate from each state


The State Titleholders’ Competition will be conducted in the form of an online submission of materials, judged by our judging committee, phone and video interviews. (All State Titleholders will then be entered into the national competition, including Preliminaries and the National Final. You can find more information about the National Final in the F.A.Q. section of our website)

How does it work

After the judges submit their scores, all contestants will be ranked from 1 and onwards. The contestant ranked at #1 will have the first choice of the state that she will represent, contestant #2 – second choice, and so on, until we run out of available states.
