"We are looking for you!"

Like most Americans, you've probably seen the Miss America
competition televised live annually from Atlantic City, NJ. What you
probably haven't seen is what's going on behind the scenes of the show,
thanks to hundreds of thousands of volunteers throughout the country.

The nationally televised Miss America competition is just one very
small part of a nationwide, community service network that operates
12 months a year in every state and more than a thousand cities and
towns across the country. On an annual basis, Miss America state
and local titleholders, along with the Organization's network of
volunteers, participate in more than 12,000 community service
projects, providing in excess of 500,000 service hours to worthy causes.

The Miss America Organization is one of the nation's leading
achievement programs and the world's largest provider of scholarship
assistance for young women. Each year, the Miss America Organization
makes available more than $45 million in cash and tuition scholarship
assistance. The program exists to give young women a vehicle to
further their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum
in which they can express their talents, intelligence and opinions
on culture, politics and the community.

Local and state Miss America programs - more than a thousand of them, in fact
are all part of the vast Miss America network. The
volunteers who run these programs do much more than put on an
annual competition. They provide scholarships that help finance
the education of thousands of young women every year. They create
opportunities for young women's voices to be heard across the
nation on important social issues. And they help young women gain
the personal and professional skills they need to succeed in life.

The volunteers who become involved are just like you. They come
from all walks of life, every generation and represent all professions
and academic disciplines. Those who become volunteers tend to stay involved because they're making a difference and having a great time along the way.
The Miss America Organization offers volunteers a unique opportunity
to integrate their diverse backgrounds and interests to make valuable
contributions to their communities, empower young women, form
lifelong friendships, further their own business objectives and
dabble in the glitz and glamour of show business.

If you have time, talent, a service or a venue to contribute, we
have a place - and a need - for you. Whether you raise scholarship
dollars, work as a backstage assistant,  wash cars at a fundraiser
or reach out to other community service organizations and educators
to secure briefings and platform related appearances for your Miss
America titleholder, you will be making a positive difference in your
community and in young women's lives.
