ABOUT MISS VIRGINIA USA / MISS VIRGINIA TEEN USA
KPJ Productions, Inc. is the exclusive licensor of MISS VIRGINIA USA / MISS VIRGINIA TEEN USA, which are the most prestigious state pageants in the Commonwealth of Virginia and they are part of the most watched pageant system in the world—MISS UNIVERSE!
It's our mission to empower women to realize their personal, professional and philanthropic goals through experiences that build self-confidence and act as catalysts for future success. We celebrate beauty, all forms of it, and provide the tools that help women to feel their most beautiful: ‘Confidently Beautiful.’
Research has shown the #1 obstacle for women to overcome in reaching their potential in any endeavor, is a lack of self-confidence. In doing so, our contestants and titleholders have the opportunity to grow as women and be confident in any goal they choose to pursue. While we are a competition, the women who participate also learn to help one another and create a network of friends and colleagues on which to draw support.
The contestants and titleholders that have gone through Miss Virginia / Miss Virginia Teen have been able to cultivate their personal career goals and be a voice to affect positive change in our state. These women are forward thinking and motivated to not just talk about change, but to initiate it. As leaders and role models within their communities, our contestants and titleholders work to affect positive change through volunteering, fundraising, and advocacy. Many have gone on to high-profile careers in government, business, finance, broadcasting, as well as film and television.
The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) is a global, inclusive organization that celebrates women of all cultures and backgrounds and empowers them to realize their goals through experiences that build self- confidence and create opportunities for success. MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA® and MISS TEEN USA® provide the approximately 10,000 women who participate annually, an international platform to effect positive change personally, professionally and philanthropically as inspirational leaders and role models.
