Miss Charlottesville Pageant

The Miss Charlottesville Organization celebrates its sixty-seventh year this October with the crowning of the 2017 court. Registration is now open for all ages. The Miss Charlottesville Organization is not associated with, nor is it a preliminary to, any other pageant or system. This is a stand alone local title dedicated to enriching the lives of young ladies and women with a passion to serve their community. Divisions are available to ages 0-24. Ages four and under compete in party or pageant dress only and may reside anywhere in the state of Virginia. Ages five through 16 compete in casualwear, on stage question, and pageant dress. Miss contestants (17-24 years of age) compete in interview, casualwear, on stage question, and gown. Ages five and up must reside within one hour of Charlottesville. A fabulous prize package awaits each titleholder with Miss Charlottesville also winning a $500 cash scholarship. Numerous other awards will also be given in recognition of contestants’ outstanding presentation. The very first Miss Charlottesville, crowned in 1950, was Charlotte Yancey Humphris. A dedicated public servant who served as the first woman Chair of the Board of Supervisors, believed in the importance of community service, green space, and involving our youth. A notable former Miss Charlottesville is Miss America 2010 Caressa Cameron. Today, the Miss Charlottesville Organization carries on the tradition of beauty, grace, and community. Last year alone, the court contributed nearly 350 hours of service and $6500 in donations to the Charlottesville community on top of 120 appearances. “This year’s court has already doubled those numbers. As you can see, being a Miss Charlottesville titleholder is much more than wearing a beautiful crown!” notes Simon. For more information, see MissCharlottesville.com. Deadline to enter is September 12. Please direct any questions to Director@MissCharlottesville.com.
