The Miss Teen America Pageant System is back in Hawaii to prepare to crown our first Miss Hawaii Teen America. Miss Hawaii Teen America 2017 will advance to compete in the National Miss Teen America Competition which will be held August 5, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. The Miss Teen America Pageant System combines beauty, service and education together to form a beauty pageant, community service organization and scholarship program into one production that will assist today’s young women in setting a solid foundation for a successful future.

The Miss Teen America Pageant System has teamed up with Argosy University and various private donors to proudly offer over $10,000 in shared scholarships to the participants this year.
