Application Forms and Info


The Miss Hastings Scholarship Program (MHSP) is taking candidate applications for the 2021 Miss Hastings Scholarship Competition, which is scheduled for Thursday, July 15th, 2021, 7 PM. Awards at our July 2019 competition included a $1,000 cash scholarship for Miss Hastings 2020, a $300 cash scholarship to her first runner-up, and $100 to her second runner-up. Our three presentation awards provided $100 to each winner of Best Talent, People's Choice, and the Spirit of Miss America Award. Our goal is to continue building on this accomplishment to nurture more scholarship opportunities for our future participants. 


Being a candidate in a Miss America Organization (MAO) local competition is an opportunity with value. You'll meet new people, learn more about yourself than you could imagine, and make friendships that last a lifetime as you prepare to compete. You could even earn a state title and the chance to become Miss America! Meanwhile, you'll discover the cause you're most passionate about and learn how to promote it to make a difference in your community. The experience gives you skills that will last a lifetime as you build your career resume, get a good job, and create the potential for a better income. It's Miss America 2.0: put your education to work as you become your best authentic you!


If you have questions about candidacy for the Miss Hastings 2022 title, please contact us for assistance. You can also check the resources below and connect with Miss Hastings 2020, Sophie Keeler, who is a seasoned competitor. Last, but not least, Miss Minnesota 2019, Kathryn Kueppers, has developed a website about the Miss America Organization and the benefits of competing in it. Called The Invisible Crown, it's packed with information and practical insights that are current, valuable, and relatable. Whatever you need, we can help you create the foundation of your Miss America experience, and empower you to #PutYourEducationToWork .


Would you like to get started? The earlier you familiarize yourself with the application process, the better for you as a candidate! The Miss America Organization is creating a new Candidate Contract, Resume Instructions, and SIS Instructions for local competitions, which should be available for your review by May 1st, 2021. Meanwhile, you can reach out to us here and learn more.  The sooner you start, the better you'll compete! Thank you for connecting with us. We look forward to working with you!
