We are very excited to hold this year's MISS WASHINGTON USA® and MISS WASHINGTON TEEN USA® competitions and are committed to touching and enhancing the lives of each contestant who participates. During the 2-3 day event currently scheduled to be held on October 18th - 19th, 2012, 2013, contestants will be participating in various seminars, self-esteem enhancing discussions, photo shoots, celebrity guest visits, rehearsals, scholarship opportunities plus a whole lot of fun!!! There are three rounds of competition including interview, evening gown and swimwear. There will be cash, prizes, awards and scholarships for the titlists and the top finalists as well as for some of the competing contestants. Last year, a combined total of over $900,000 worth was given out. In addition, the Miss Washington Teen USA® winner will go on to compete in the MISS TEEN USA® Pageant and the Miss Washington USA® winner will go on to compete in the MISS USA® Pageant. Plus, the winner of the MISS USA pageant will represent the U.S. at the MISS UNIVERSE® Pageant as seen on NBC Universal.
The Miss Universe Organization is proud to be in the 62nd year of operation providing young women with unique opportunities. The MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA® and MISS TEEN USA® Pageants are a Donald J. Trump and NBCUniversal joint venture. Utilizing its nationwide grass roots infrastructure, the Miss Universe Organization is committed to increasing HIV/AIDS awareness (Miss Universe) and increasing awareness of breast and ovarian cancers (Miss USA). Miss USA spends much of her time in relationships with organizations committed to research and education such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Gilda's Club. Miss Teen USA spends her year building relationships with organizations devoted to education and action, such as Best Buddies, D.A.R.E, Girl Talk, Sparrow Clubs and Project Sunshine.
At the state level, contestants and state delegates have the wonderful opportunity to help raise awareness and/or funds for numerous charitable organizations such as the Race for the Cure (increasing awareness of early detection), DARE (to keep kids off drugs), Best Buddies (dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships), Girl Talk (mentoring program for middle school girls), Sparrow Clubs (people helping kids in medical crisis) and many others. The way we keep our organization running and able to provide contestants with such great opportunities is through sponsors. We ask that each contestant collect a sponsorship fee from local businesses, friends, family, organizations, etc. as part of her participation in this event. The sponsorship fee covers all of her expenses for the 2-3 day event (including hotel, meals, etc.) and also goes towards the winner's incredible prize package and expenses for competing at the MISS USA® or MISS TEEN USA® Pageant.
This truly is a wonderful opportunity for each contestant to improve upon her inner-personal life success and interview skills needed for today's demanding goals and challenges.
