The Miss Colorado Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Colorado in the Miss Teen USA pageant. From 2007, the pageant has been directed by the Future Productions group which also directs pageants in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming.[1] The pageant have been held in Loveland, Greeley and other cities.[1][2]

Colorado has only placed five times in the pageant's history. Three of those placements all came in the 1990s. The fourth placement, in 2007, was Colorado's only win, as well as its only top five placement. They have also won a style award, in 1999.

One of Colorado's semi-finalists was Katee Doland, a Triple Crown winner. She is one of three Miss Colorado Teen USA titleholders to win the Miss Colorado USA crown. Morgan O'Murray, Miss Colorado Teen USA 1999, also won the Miss Colorado state title for the Miss America pageant in 2000.
