Here is where you can take the first step to becoming Miss Kentucky by entering one of the local scholarship pageants held throughout the year across the state.  Please check back frequently for updates. 
Links to pageant locations are provided when available, otherwise location addresses are given to assist those interested in attending and the show times are posted.  Contestants will need to check with directors for rehearsal and interview times.  Information will be added when it has been provided and okayed by the state director.  Names of the 2017 titleholders will be added once verified with regional or local directors.
 For additional contestant information regarding eligibility and participation qualifications and Children's Miracle Network fundraising requirements please visit the Contestant Information section of this website.  If you are interested in directing a local preliminary contact Justin Rains at misskentuckyprogram@yahoo.com.

***Directors and Contestants should be aware that the talent time limit is 90 seconds***
***Directors and Contestants should also be aware that contestants who have competed at Miss Kentucky or Miss Kentucky's Outstanding Teen cannot enter the same local pageant the following year in order to win a different title within that local organization (this includes teens moving up to the miss division).  Contestants must wait a year before representing the same local organization at the state level in teen and/or miss.***
In accordance with Miss America rules and at the discretion of the Miss Kentucky Organization, fair & festival pageant winners may participate in the state competition if they meet entry rules and eligibility criteria.  Interested fair & festival pageant directors should contact the state organization at misskentuckyprogram@yahoo.com.
Fair & Festival titleholder names competing in Miss Kentucky will be added to the official contestant listing once all mandatory fees have been received. 

***Any contestant who will turn 25 on or before December 31, 2017 is not eligible to compete for Miss Kentucky 2017***

***Any Teen aging into Miss must be a Senior in High School AND be at least 17 years old by March 31, 2017**

All 2017 local preliminaries must be held prior to April 1st.  The 2017 Miss America Day of Service will be April 8, 2017 and orientation will also be held on April 8th and 9th.  All Miss Kentucky contestants are required to participate in these events.
