Application Forms and Info
The application window for the 2021 Miss Hastings Scholarship Competition is closed.
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. We are on track to award the same amount or more this year despite postponing our 2020 event.
Being a candidate in a Miss America Organization (MAO) local competition is a priceless opportunity! 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. The new registration process gives you membership to exclusive opportunities to learn from women leading their profession and a chance to win an additional $1,000 scholarship! Read more details here. You could even earn a state title and the opportunity to compete for more scholarships at the Miss Minnesota Competition and the Miss America Competition.
Still, the role of Miss Hastings is so much more! It's like an internship that gives each young woman a platform to advocate the cause she is passionate about promoting. She is an ambassador of our community, a servant leader within it, and a role model to our youth. Miss Hastings connects with our community, is part of fun events, and meets new people. The experience preparing to compete for the title alone is invaluable. The year of service as Miss Hastings is a lifestyle that can powerfully benefit the future of the young woman who bears the title because she builds relationships. It's life-changing!
If you have questions about your candidacy to become Miss Hastings, don't hesitate to get in touch with us for assistance. You can also check Invisible Crown Productions, a website created by Miss Minnesota 2019-2020, Kathryn Kueppers, and her mother, Vicki, Miss Minnesota 1983. It's packed with information about the MAO and the benefits of competing 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 .
A candidate chooses her competition number when all of her documents are submitted and approved. It's never too early to get started! We look forward to working with you in 2022.
On behalf of the Miss Hastings Scholarship Program, thank you!
