Miss and Teen contestants may choose to enter Miss California or Miss California's Teen directly as an at-large contestant, bypassing local competitions. The Miss America Organization's decision to permit at-large entries is very recent, and we are still assembling details on how to apply. Email for more information. 

Contestants must have everything submitted by May 1, 2023 in order to qualify. (Everything includes but may not be limited to all forms such as contracts, talent clearances; headshot; competition magazine program ad; fees; talent music; casual video of talent performance; hostess forms, etc.) Contestants may request their titles, subject to approval (e.g. Miss Palm Desert, Miss Kern County's Teen). Entry includes official Miss America local sash; official Miss America local crown may be available for purchase. Crowns/tiaras not designated as Miss America official products are not permitted. Check back weekly for more details.
