The Miss Mission City and Miss Santa Clara competition is open to young women between the ages of 18-26.

Compete for a local title!

Each year, thousands of young women participate at the local, state and national levels, culminating in the selection of 51 national finalists who compete for the title of Miss America. One of them could be you!

To become Miss America, a candidate must first enter and win a local competition, and then compete to represent her state—a process requiring hard work, talent and personal commitment. As a state titleholder, a candidate may only compete once at the national Miss America Competition.
