Kim Nicewonder, Executive Director

Welcome to Our Website!

At MISS VIRGINIA USA and MISS VIRGINIA TEEN USA, my mission as Executive Director goes far beyond dresses, make-up, beauty and crowns. Our entire pageant experience is designed to make a positive impact on the lives of each contestant, both inside and out. These past 21 years have truly been a blessing and has given me the opportunity to work with some amazing young ladies and watch them prosper and grow into successful women and take on the role as wives and mothers. Our sisterhood and bond that we hold with each other is what makes the Virginia USA pageant unique in itself...a very special place!

Virginia has beeen a wonderful year so far with two of the most amazing representatives, Laura and Annie. I could not be more proud of both of these young ladies and how well they have represented our great commonwealth! They will be traveling many miles across Virginia as well as other states for various appearances such as Best Buddies, D.A.R.E., Special Olympics, Breast Cancer Awareness and many others. Not to forget the opportunity of Laura representing Virginia world wide in the nationally televised Miss USA and Annie at the national Miss Teen USA pageant. It will be an exciting year!

At MISS VIRGINIA USA and MISS VIRGINIA TEEN USA, we believe in giving back to the community. This year we partnered with P.A.C.E.M and raised $4000 for this incredible organization. I feel so blessed with the opportunity to contribute to the homeless community and provide shelter and food during these cold winter months.

The pageant could not be the success it is without my incredible team...Thank you for all of your wonderful talents, hard work and dedication...YOU ARE THE BEST! Thank you also to our wonderful generous sponsors, Rick Hill Imports for providing the new Miss Virginia USA 2015 the use of a brand new Mercedes during her reign. Subway, Sals and Pepsi for the contestant meals, NewsPlex, Drive Away Motors, City of Charlottesville and the Omni for making it a memorable event!

Also, very special thanks to the colleges providing scholarships: King University, Emory & Henry College, UVA-Wise and Lindenwood University and New York Film Academy. Together, they are offering over $500,000 in scholarships! Your support and belief in our program makes for an unforgettable event for each of these young ladies!

....The SEEDS of potential are within each of us. With just the right attention, your dreams can reach full BLOOM...This is the chance for these girls to shine and GROW beneath the lights of the MISS VIRGINIA USA and MISS VIRGINIA TEEN USA stage!

God Bless,

Kim
