The Miss High Desert Scholarship Program open to girls living in Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson, Wheeler & Grant County. It is a local pageant to the Miss Oregon Scholarship that was founded in 1947. It is unlike any other group conducting a pageant in the State of Oregon. With a focus on conducting a competition that emphasizes the unique aspect of each young woman and which highlights their personal successes from community service to academics to performing arts we are so much more than your "stereotypical" pageant. At every turn we strive to provide young women with the opportunity to rise to the top. The program is fully committed to motivating and assisting young women in the state of Oregon to fulfill their individual and professional goals by rewarding its participants with significant college and university tuition assistance.
Supporting and promoting the self-esteem of the contestants is of the utmost importance to our organization. It is essential that the young women who compete feel a sense of belonging with both her fellow contestants and the larger pageant community. The skills learned in our Miss and Outstanding Teen Pageants have been said to last a lifetime. It's a sisterhood unlike any other. Contestants gain the ability to speak and perform in public, to serve as leaders in our communities and to have a sense of confidence in themselves and their abilities.
