F.A.Q.

What is Miss World?

Miss World dates back to 1951 and is the oldest running international beauty pageant. It is also the most prestigious and popular beauty pageant on the international scale. Every year, Miss World pageant is broadcast live on various TVchannels across the world (2018 Final Event that took place in Sanya, China on December 8 had a viewership of over 1.5 billion).
The core concept of Miss World and Miss World America is “Beauty with a Purpose” (BWAP),which makes MW & MWA completely different from all other existing beauty pageants. While physical beauty is still important for MW & MWA, the main focus of our organization is on the most well-rounded and self confident young women with a big heart and soul, passionate about their communities and willing to make a positive impact on society
Every year Miss World organization awards a contestant with the most relevant and important charity platform in her nation, bringing global attention as well as funding to her BWAP project. Since 1972 Miss World Organization raised over 300 million dollars with the help of BWAP program for charities protecting disabled and unprivileged children.

What is Miss World America?

Miss World America, or America’s Miss World, is the official United States preliminary to Miss World, the oldest running international beauty pageant. Each year, the winner of Miss World America represents the United States at the Miss World competition.
