As many of you know, the Miss America Competition is held in Atlantic City, New Jersey every year in the month of September. This year, the 95th Miss America Competition will consist of 52 lovely & talented women – one of whom will be staying with Vantage! We are beyond excited & honored, and we wish her the best of luck in the competition!

The Miss America Organization is the largest scholarship program for women in the United States as it provides millions of dollars in annual college scholarship assistance. MAO contestants contribute over 500,000 hours of community service annually and have raised over $10 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 2007.
