Miss United States

 Miss United States pageant is a beauty contest held in the United States for young women between the ages of 20-29 and has been held every year since 2004.

The primary goal of the Miss United States Organization is to provide a lifechanging experience for young, vibrant women across the country. The organization strives to empower all delegates to become active participants in her community while nurturing and promoting a cause meaningful to her. The Miss United States Organization is based on a solid commitment to uphold the standards of fairness and integrity. It prides itself in providing an avenue for each young woman to give a voice to those needing to be heard, lend a hand to those less fortunate, and be a compass for those daring to dream.

At the local, state, and national level the Miss United States Organization gives women the opportunity to promote a platform of community service. The pageant system allows young women all over the country to interact and discuss their achievements in service and volunteerism. It promotes the intellect, moral character and personal engagement of its outstanding participants as they pursue success in achievement.

The United States pageant has been contested among at-large delegates and delegates who won their state competitions. The competition was held for several years in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2011, however, the pageant was moved to the Nation's Capital, Washington, D.C..

The 8th and current Miss United States is Ashley Christian Smith, from Virginia, who won the title on July 14, 2011.


Contestants are judged on the following phases of competition:

    Personal Interview In the Personal Interview phase of competition, each contestant will speak with five (5) judges for three (3) minutes each in a "Round Robin" format for a total of fifteen (15) minutes per contestant. Questions may range from general inquiries to specific interrogations about a contestant's platform. However, in this pageant system political questions from the judges are highly discouraged during interview. This phase of competition, unlike the others, is conducted privately amongst contestants and judges and will not be viewed by the general public on stage. The Personal Interview counts for 25% of the contestant's overall score.
    Swimsuit & Fitness In the Swimsuit phase of competition, contestants are required to walk across the stage in a swimsuit and high-heeled shoes of their choice. In recent years, two-piece swimsuits have become a popular choice among contestants but one-piece swimsuits are also allowed. Per policy of this organization, thongs, string bikinis, and/or brazilian bikinis are not allowed. All swimwear must be appropriate for a family enviornment. The Swimsuit competition counts for 25% of the contestant's overall score.
    Evening Wear In the Evening Wear phase of competition, contestants are required to walk across the state in an evening gown of their choice. Judges will score based on poise and grace of each contestant. The Evening Wear portion of the competition counts for 25% of the contestant's overall score.
    Onstage Question During this phase, contestants are asked a random question from a predetermined list that they must then answer onstage with no preparation. Questions normally allow the contestant to talk about herself or give her opinion of general issues. Current events are not normally discussed during this phase of competition in the Miss United States system. The Onstage Question counts for 25% of the contestant's total score.


    Miss United States was the title of the fictional pageant in the movie Miss Congeniality. Said film was released in 2000, the year before the pageant of the same name began.

    Miss United States was originally a title awarded in the 1920s International Pageant of Pulchritude in Galveston, Texas.

    Miss Virginia is the only state to win three (3) divisions of the Miss United States Pageant in the same year (in 2011, Virginia won the Teen, Miss, and Ms. divisions).

    Miss South Carolina is the only state to win four (4) Miss United States crowns.

    Miss South Carolina is the first to win back to back Miss United States titles.
