The Miss America Organization (MAO) has implemented new procedures for candidate registrations. For now, this is what all candidates must do.
1. All candidates must register on MAO's official registration site and pay a once-per-competition season registration fee of $35.00. This fee is retained by MAO. A candidate isn't eligible for any local competition until she registers and pays required fees.
2. When a candidate registers and pays the $35 registration fee, the Miss California Organization then contacts the candidate with a welcome letter that includes our Local License Area chart. The letter also includes a link to a registration site where the candidate registers for a specific local competition (Miss Anaheim and/or Miss Anaheim Hills/Miss Canyon Hills) and pays a $75.00 fee per event.
3. The entry information is then forwarded to the specific local competition that the candidate requests. Miss Candidates must pay the $75 fee for each local competition that they enter.
Registrants may choose to be enrolled for access to MAO's Professional Development Series, featuring experts in social media training, public speaking, media/press training and more. They gain access to health/wellness and peak performance training, resume building, networking events, and discounts on Miss America merchandise.
