The Miss America Organization has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to raise funds and awareness
for children’s hospitals throughout the United States. Contestants competing in Miss America-sponsored pageants
are now expected to raise at least $100 in donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Miss America Scholarship
Fund. It’s not an entry fee, but a service requirement. In addition, each new Miss America becomes
the goodwill ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, speaking on behalf of kids treated at children’s
hospitals and raising awareness around the country. It’s just another way the Miss America Organization helps
young women leave a legacy of service, scholarship and support.
Supporting children’s hospitals is a community effort, and your local contestant needs your help. Because funds donated
to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals stay in the community, when you donate you’re helping kids near you—maybe
even the children in your own life. Help your local contestant reach her fundraising goal by donating to these two wonderful
Thank you for helping Miss America contestants make miracles happen!
Contestants who compete at the local level must raise at least $100 to compete in a local
pageant. The contestant must raise an additional $100 for each pageant she enters until she
has raised at least $500 at the local level. At this point, she will have met her fundraising goal at
the local level and does not have to raise additional donations unless she advances to the state level.
All contestants who compete at the state level must raise at least an additional $250 above the donations they raised
at the local level. All contestants competing at the national level must raise at least an additional $500 beyond
the minimum donation of $250 required at the state level. To date over $14 million dollars has been raised
for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals by Miss America contestants.
