Miss America vs Miss United States

19, November 2014

In the pageant world, we know of hundreds of thousands of pageant systems. But many pageant systems seem to stand out with how popular they have become or how long they have been a popular item. Note: Now before getting started, this isn't an article about which is better, but rather what each wonderful system has to offer, and which would be best for YOU to showcase your pageant abilities. MUSO

The Miss United States Organization (MUSO) crowned their first titleholder in 1925 to Miss California. The pageant consists of private interview, evening gown, on stage interview and swimwear. The competitors also must choose a platform to stand for throughout their time competing and reigning, and this will be the organization or foundation they support and advocate.

The current Miss United States, Elizabeth Safrit, was 22 when she won her title. To compete in the Miss division you could compete for the title from ages 20-29. In this system they also have a Jr. Teen title for ages 13-15, a Teen title for ages 16-19 and a Ms. title for ages 25-39. But the more prominent title, Miss, held by Safrit, was recently asked to compete at the 64th annual Miss World competition in London this year.

She will be the only woman representing the United States in London this year. The MUSO system begins its pageants for the system with a local title, which then proceeds to the state title and then national title of Miss United States, and with the recent update, she will proceed to Miss World.

Check out the video of it all happening here!

The Miss United States national titleholder is awarded thousands of dollars in sponsors for make-up, jewelry, talent agents, wardrobe, guest appearances, traveling, hair, photo shoots, competition wear for Miss World and so much more.

MAO

The Miss America Organization (MAO) began their competition in 1920, where is was originated to extend the summer season while also awarding young girls scholarship money. This system consists of, like MUSO, private interview, evening gown, onstage interview, swimwear and unlike MUSO, talent.

The competitors must also choose a platform to advocate for throughout their time competing and reigning, and this will be the organization or foundation they support throughout their time competing and reigning in the system.

The current Miss America, Kira Kazantsev, was 23 when she won her title, but to compete in the Miss division you could compete for the title from ages 17-24. The Miss America Organization also awards a teen title each year, for the Miss America's Outstanding Teen pageant for ages 13-17.

The MAO system also begins its pageants for the system with a local title, which then proceeds to the state and then to the national title of Miss America. The Miss America Organization is the number 1 scholarship provider to women in the world. This past year MAO awarded $340,000 at the national Miss America pageant alone, not including what state and local scholarships were awarded.

Miss America is sponsored with thousands of dollars in make-up, wardrobe, hair, traveling, photo shoots and much much more.

Miss United States vs Miss America

Each system is wonderful, and unique, in their own way. Being a girl who is a current MAO title holder, I do praise the system I am in. But also being a TPP girl, I praise other systems that rejoice in awarding young women who work hard, are intelligent and well spoken, and look darn good while doing it all. So which do I choose? I'm sorry ladies but I will have to say ...BOTH! I can't pick one system over the other simply because I love them both. But what do you think of each system? Let us know which is your favorite, and what you find so awarding about each. If you're still battling which system you should go into, just try both. If you find you do better in one than the other, then head down that road and see where it leads you. So go out and spread your Swarovski bedazzled wings to soar into the pageant world. This is a world needing to be taken over, needing a queen for the job. So ladies, if the crown fits... well, you know the rest. ;)
