The annual Miss Southern California USA® Pageant is now accepting applications. This year the pageant is geared toward giving young women a choice to compete at a state pageant or receive a cash scholarship. The theme of the pageant is Character Counts teaching young women self-respect and ambition towards their future.
This is a preliminary pageant, which can lead to other state pageants or a cash scholarship of $500.00, and is open to Teen applicants ranging from ages 13 to 17 and Miss applicants 17-25.
Applicants must be a U.S. citizen never married or pregnant must be a resident of California for the past 6 months. Applicants attending college out of state may enter if their primary residence is in California.
