The Miss Wisconsin USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Wisconsin in the Miss USA pageant. Since 2008, the state pageant has been directed by Future Productions of Savage, Minnesota.

Wisconsin is one of the least successful states in the Miss USA system with only seven placements in over sixty years. The state's highest placing was Mary Cook earning 2nd runner-up in 1974, and they had no placements from 1979 until 2007, when Caitlin Morrall made the top fifteen. In 2005, Melissa Ann Young won the Miss Congeniality award. Elyzabeth Lee Pham won Miss Photogenic in 1999 and Kate Redeker at Miss USA 2016. The current Miss Wisconsin USA is Skylar Witte.[1]
