For 17 years, MAOT has provided scholarships for young women between the ages of 13-18 to pursue higher education. Providing teens with public speaking skills, service opportunities, and friendships that will last a lifetime, MAOT remains a staple in the Miss America Organization.

In the summer of 1921, on the boardwalk of Atlantic City, an American icon was born.

For the past 100 years, Miss America has been one of the country’s most recognizable household names and has been at the center of everything from national trends to social movements to the birth of television. The young women involved have made a significant difference in people’s lives through their charitable and community service endeavors, using the national platform to educate millions of Americans on issues facing the nation.

Miss America is more than a title, it’s a movement of empowering young women everywhere to dream big, to insist that their voices be heard and to inspire change in the world around them.

Of course, Miss America wears a crown—she rules.
