Our Programs

It’s our mission to help young women reach their academic and career goals.

Miss North Carolina

To become Miss North Carolina, a 19-26 year old candidate must first enter and win a local competition—a process requiring hard work, talent and personal commitment. As a local titleholder, a candidate may go on to compete at the annual Miss NC Competition.

Miss North Carolina's
Outstanding Teen

The MNCOTeen program is a division of The Miss NC Organization for young women ages 13-18. Candidates compete in areas such as interview, talent, and social impact for scholarships to further their education.

“Because of this program, I'll become the first college graduate in my family and will do so debt-free”
