The Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City

Once known as Convention Hall, the historic Boardwalk Hall recently is the home of the Miss America Pageant. The Miss America Pageant was presented for the first time in September1933 in the Boardwalk Hall and finally made the Hall its permanent home on September 7. 1946

Rich in history and social significance, the Miss America Organization is a not-for-profit organization that has maintained a tradition for many decades of empowering American women to achieve their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum in which to express their opinions, talent and intelligence

To become Miss America, a contestant must first win a local competition and then compete to represent her state, a process requiring personal commitment, hard work and talent. A woman may compete at the state level more than once, but may only compete in the national Miss America competition one time.
More than twelve thousand women participate each year in the local and state events, culminating in the selection of 51 national finalists who vie for the Miss America title in Atlantic City.
Tens of thousands of volunteers organize the local and state preliminary competitions, promoting community involvement throughout the United States and furthering scholarship and achievement among young women in their communities.
