Kim Nicewonder, Executive Director
Welcome to the Miss Virginia USA & Miss Virginia Teen USA!
Here is where dreams do come true! 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 25 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, mothers and business leaders. Our sisterhood and bond that we hold with each other is what makes the Virginia USA pageant unique in itself...a very special place!
This past October 22 we crowned two amazing young ladies, Miss Virginia USA 2018, Ashley Vollrath and Miss Virginia Teen USA 2018, Himanvi Panidepu. These two ladies have traveled and explored the great Commonwealth working with many different organizations such as Best Buddies, Boys and Girls Club, Special Olympics, Smile Train and many others, and schools around the Commonwealth. This year both the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA will take place during the same week in Shreveport, LA. On May 2, 2018 Ashley will be representing Virginia LIVE on Fox!
At MISS VIRGINIA USA and MISS VIRGINIA TEEN USA, we believe in giving back to the community. This year we raised over $14,000 for over 45 different charities for our “Champion For a Cause” charity auction.
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 2018 the use of a brand new Mercedes during her reign. Also, very special thanks to the colleges providing scholarships: King University, Emory & Henry College, UVA-Wise, Hollins University and Liberty University. Together, they are offering over $2,000,000 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!
