Miss World America Is Changing Its Format for 2020

This year, because of the new circumstances that 2020 introduced in our everyday lives, Miss World America will be held in the form of a virtual online pageant.

“Our mission has always been to empower young women across the country and promote Beauty with a Purpose.  During these uncertain and everchanging times , we want to support and uplift the spirits of young women and society overall through the celebration of a beauty, talent, intellect, empathy, unity and philanthropy, even if it has to take place in our living rooms!”

– says Michael Blakey, Miss World America National Director.

“We are going to revolutionize the pageant industry and do something that has never been done before – we will hold a virtual, online competition, complete with hosts, a live audience and real-time judging, artist performances, celebrity guest appearances, interviews, and virtual networking events.” 

– says Katya Shalayeva, Miss World America Executive Vice President and Creative Director.

The contestants will participate in real-time preliminary competitions, receive camera time in front of a live audience and judges; they will also interact with viewers, and rehearse and collaborate with each other. Each contestant will be able to plug in to Miss World America events through her smart phone or laptop, at a convenient time and without the necessity to travel or be away from her family and day-to-day commitments.

Viewers will have access to series of online virtual events, during the month of October. The audience will have an opportunity to interact with the hosts, contestants and other show participants, take part in live polls, virtual VIP networking events, and much more!

Preliminary competitions will include Beauty with a Purpose, Influencer Challenge, Talent Showcase, Head To Head Challenge, Entrepreneur Challenge, Top Model Challenge, and People’s Choice.   New challenges will also be introduced.

The new Miss World America and Miss Teen World America queens will be invited to an all expense paid trip to Los Angeles for an official crowning ceremony, photo shoot, appearances, media interviews, and other exciting activities, all of which will be included in the Miss World America 2020 Final web cast.
