★★★★MISS AMERICA: FACTS AND TRIVIA★★★★

Postby Nick28 » Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:49 am

    

"Miss America represents the highest ideals. She is a real combination of beauty, grace, and intelligence, artistic and refined. She is a type which the American Girl might well emulate."

In the early years of the pageant, a beauty competition of the women wearing bathing suits was the main event. Miss America 1951 Yolande Betbeze refused to pose for publicity pictures while wearing a swimsuit, citing that she wanted to be recognized as a serious opera singer. Catalina swimwear, one of the Miss America sponsors, withdrew and created the Miss USA/Universe pageants.
Image

The pageant has been nationally televised since 1954. It peaked in the early 1960s, when it was repeatedly the highest-rated program on American television. It was seen as a symbol of the United States, with Miss America often being referred to as the female equivalent of the President. The pageant stressed conservative values; contestants were not expected to have ambitions beyond being a good wife (there is also a Mrs. America pageant).

Miss America does not compete in any of the four major international beauty pageants. Miss America is an American beauty pageant for young women in the United States. The titleholder is required to travel across the United States on a national speaking tour. The winner is awarded a crown, sash, college scholarship and monetary award as a part of her winnings. She works as a spokeswoman, advocate and increases awareness based on a platform or subject of her choice and her reign lasts for a year.
