Pageant Information

Hello, and welcome! 


We trust that we will provide you additional information that will answer many of your questions. Each year we work to provide a fair environment in which women have the opportunity to compete not against others, but challenging themselves. We trust the pageant encourages the contestants to build self-confidence, individual pride, and a greater self- awareness.


Each contestant should be able to improve their ability to communicate effectively, to speak in front of people comfortably, and to stand up for what they believe in. We encourage our contestants to find causes or issues they feel strongly about, and to become involved in organizations that speak closest to their hearts. Every woman who enters the pageant has different ideals and goals and strives hard in their personal quest for excellence.


We are pleased that a majority of contestants each year have never participated in a pageant and they find it to be a rewarding and worthwhile experience. Many contestants have won their first time out, and many others return because of the positive experience they had in our
program. We like to think that each woman walks away from our program with an invigorating perspective about the world around her, and more importantly, the world ahead of her.


Our philosophy for the Mrs. America and Miss For America State Pageant programs are not about encouraging women to "win" a pageant, but to encourage women to develop life skills that will ultimately help them win in life by being their personal best in everything they do.

Pageant Competition

Each contestant will compete in three equal phases of preliminary competition: interview, swimsuit and evening gown. The results from these preliminary phases of competition are added up, and the contestants with the highest composite scores become semifinalists.

  • Interview: Preliminary interviews. You will have a three-minute interview with a panel of judges. It's very comfortable and conversational. Contestants are scored on their communication skills, and personality. They are NOT scored on the judge’s opinions or personal beliefs.


  • Swimsuit: Each contestant is evaluated on her physical fitness, stage-presence and overall impression.


  • Evening Gown: Each contestant is evaluated on grace, poise, style, stage presence, the confidence with which she carries herself and overall-impression. Judges are instructed to evaluate the contestant, not the dress she is wearing.


The Mrs. America and Miss For America State Pageant Competition kicks off with the opening production number followed by the swimsuit competition and evening gown competition. Soon after, the semi-finalists are announced and will then join the Emcee who will ask them to present their impact statement about topics related to their bio. All contestants will participate on stage several times during the show.

The Top-5 finalists will then be announced then each judge will independently select their winner, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up, 3rd runner-up, and 4th runner-up in each pageant. These events lead up to the crowning of the new 2021 Mrs. America, Mrs. American and Miss For America  State.

David & Elaine Marmel



Mrs. America


The “Mrs. America Competition” rich in history, was first held in 1938 and continued until 1968. In 1977, after a nine year hiatus, it was revived by David Z. Marmel, after his successful career in professional athletics and independent television production. He was instrumental in setting the new direction for the pageant and transforming the pageant into the multifaceted event it is today

Mrs. America was the first and remains the foremost competition for the married woman in America. Now in it’s 42nd year it is considered to be the premiere pageant for married women and has epitomized excellence, professionalism and the celebration of family values, and is supported by an office and full time director in every state in America and the District of Columbia. The winner of the Mrs. America crown will have an exciting year ahead with boundless opportunities to raise awareness for special causes as well as represent the modern married woman. Our present-day pageant, while maintaining its traditions, now seeks to recognize what David calls, “America’s greatest natural resource – the contemporary married woman.” The winner of the Mrs. America Competition represents America in the international Mrs. World Pageant. Thanks to Mr. Marmel for his vision and is why we have a Mrs. America Competition today!
