Featuring eight divisions – Little Miss, Pre-Teen, Junior Teen, Teen, Miss, Ms., Ms. Woman, and Mrs. – the United States National Pageant Organization® is recognized as “the premier event of its kind” and the largest pageant system for girls and women ages 8+ in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories.

Atlantic City, NJ (June 1, 2017) –  The Miss America Organization (MAO) and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) are pleased to once again present the Local Miracle MakerAward – a fundraising initiative to recognize our most selfless and successful fundraisers at the local level – on stage during the 2018 Miss America Competition in September.

Together, MAO and CMN Hospitals will recognize three (3) winners on stage with a special scholarship. We hope to see more local contestants going above and beyond their fundraising efforts to achieve this wonderful award and recognition.

Eligibility: Recipients must be local titleholders who raise the most funds from the start of their local fundraising efforts to the beginning of their state competition.

How funds will be calculated: Regardless of your State Miracle Maker Award deadline, all local titleholder fundraising that is processed no later than midnight the day before the State Competitionwill be counted to determine the winners for the Local Miracle Maker Award. To reiterate, this initiative does not change your own State Miracle Maker Award deadline. The Local Miracle Maker Award calculation will be consistent across the country.

Prizes: The top three (3) local titleholder fundraisers from across the country will be provided with airfare for two (2), competition tickets for two (2), and accommodations in Atlantic City. The winners will also be invited on the Miss America stage to receive the scholarships listed below during a Preliminary Night Competition.

Local Miracle Maker Award Scholarships:
1st place – $5,000
2nd place – $3,000
3rd place – $2,000

We are excited to honor our top three Local Miracle Makers on the Miss America stage this September. Thank you all for your continued fundraising efforts and your support of the Miss America Organization and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!
