MISS PHILADELPHIA SCHOLARSHIP ORGANIZATION
The Miss Philadelphia Scholarship Organization, a 100% volunteer-based 501c3 organization, is one of the nation’s top local affiliates of the Miss America Scholarship Organization, the largest provider of scholarships for women in the country.
Miss Philadelphia (ages 17-25) and Miss Philadelphia’s Outstanding Teen (age 13-17) are role models, community advocates and ambassadors for the city. Each year, both women will make nearly 100 appearances on behalf of charitable organizations and their personal social impact platforms. They’ll also represent Philadelphia in the Miss Pennsylvania and Outstanding Teen competitions.
Both Miss Philadelphia and Miss Philadelphia’s Outstanding Teen 2019 received a prize package valued at more than $130K including a full scholarship to Cabrini University (undergraduate or graduate program) in Radnor. Center City Orthodontics sponsored the Miss and Teen cash scholarships totaling more than $4K.
This is the 98th anniversary for Miss Philadelphia, who was one of the eight original contestants in the very first Miss America Pageant 1921 in Atlantic City. Three Miss Philadelphias have won Miss America in the program’s history.
Miss Philadelphia’s Board of Directors are all volunteers and former titleholders, including seven former Miss Philadelphias. Miss Philadelphia is open to the five county Philadelphia region.
