04/01/2022 High Point, N.C. – The selection of the candidate who will compete in the Miss America and Miss America’s Outstanding Teen competitions will return to High Point, NC this summer. The Miss North Carolina Organization will host the two competitions June 23-25, 2022 at the High Point Theater with two preliminary nights of competition and culminate with the crowning of Miss North Carolina 2022 as well as Miss North Carolina’s Outstanding Teen 2022. Since 1937, the Miss North Carolina organization has recognized remarkable, intelligent and talented young women and the communities that have sponsored and supported them.

The organization, along with the North Carolina Education Scholarship Fund, have a goal of awarding over $125,000 in cash scholarships during the three-day competition.
“High Point played an integral part in the success of our 2021 competition,” noted Susan Williams, Executive Director of the MNCO. “Nancy Bowman and her team at the HPCVB have spent countless hours helping us plan the 2022 competitions and I’m thankful for their commitment to our mission. The Triad region has a long and rich history with the Miss North Carolina organization and we are excited to crown our good will ambassador here. ”
The organization will host several events that will involve the High Point and greater Triad community including a charity golf tournament and a red carpet arrival ceremony. To learn more about the competitions, ticket information and associated events, visit www.MissNC.org.
