You are one step closer to becoming part of the most prestigious state pageants in the Commonwealth of Virginia, which are part of the most watched pageant system in the world — MISS UNIVERSE!

We are an 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.

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.’

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 winner of the competition must be confident. She must understand the values of our brand and the responsibilities of the title. She must have the ability to articulate her ambition. A contestant should demonstrate authenticity, credibility and exhibit grace under pressure. The women who compete embody the modern, global aspiration for the potential within all women.
