The Miss and Outstanding Teen Allegany County & Cumberland Pageants place an emphasis on excellence, achievement and personal growth for the young women who participate in our program. Contestants are encouraged to develop self-awareness as well as social awareness and become winners in life through participation in the pageant experience. We are an official local preliminary of the The Miss America Organization, one of the nation's leading achievement programs and the world's largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women. The pageants will take place at St. Luke's Lutheran Church, Frederick Street, Cumberland.
Each year, the Miss America Organization makes available more than $40 million in cash and tuition scholarship assistance. The Miss America Organization provides young women with a vehicle to further their personal and professional goals and instills a spirit of community service through a variety of unique nationwide community-based programs. On an annual basis, Miss America state and local titleholders, along with the Organization's network of volunteers, participate in more than 12,000 community-service projects, providing in excess of 500,000 service hours to worthy causes.
