Teen Contestants

People's Choice Award Online Voting!

At this year’s pageant we are holding a special online competition called the People’s Choice! We will be collecting your votes with the help of our voting partner, The Pageant Planet, for your favorite contestant for the People’s Choice in both the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA divisions. This year, the People’s Choice Winners will be guaranteed a spot as a FINALIST in the Pageant Finals! Voting will take place online and the winners of the People’s Choice for each division will be revealed during the announcement of the finalists as well as recognized during the awards portion near the end of the Pageant Finals!

Any funding raised during the People’s Choice Voting will be split between the titleholder preparation fund to cover various expenses incurred by the state pageant during the titleholders’ preparations for the national pageant, as well as the general production budget for staffing and staging of the state pageant. During this year’s pageant, if the contestant numbers dictate, it may be decided by the judging panel to allow all the state contestants to advance to the Pageant Finals. If so, the winners of the People’s Choice voting will still be announced at the start of the Pageant Finals as well as recognized during the awards portion near the end of the show.
