The Miss Teen of America Pageant was founded in 1983 by the late Mr. Warren Alexander, a former educator and pageant director. Rebranded in 2017 to include additional age divisions, the program is designed to help America’s youth reach their full potential.
This scholastically based pageant recognizes young women ages 7-26 for their outstanding personal achievements, leadership abilities, and artistic, creative or athletic talents. The American Pageants organization searches for complete well-rounded girls, which is accomplished through a well balanced and fair judging criteria.
