The Miss Tennessee Scholarship Competition is staffed completely by volunteers and depends solely on donations for the scholarships we award and funds to cover operating expenses and the state level competition. Annually, Miss Tennessee awards over $100,000 in scholarships to help these women realize their education dreams. This year, based on our award categories, we anticipate awarding over $160,000 in scholarships. We anticipate this year's competition and operating expenses to require $70,000. These funds include the state level competition production as well as funding travel for Miss Tennessee's travel and expenses for competing at the Miss America Competition as well as her appearances in support of the Outstanding Teen Competition and other Miss America events.
The Miss Tennessee Organization, a 501(c)4 non-profit, is one of the most recognizable brands in America, working to empower young women through education and service. Miss Tennessee / Miss America candidates contribute tens of thousands of community service hours annually and have raised over $18 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Miss America scholarships since 2007.
