Miss America's Outstanding Teen pageants select the representative for each state for the Miss America's Outstanding Teen pageant.

Although Miss America state pageants used to run unofficial teen competitions, Miss America's Outstanding Teen was the first official teen pageant associated with the Miss America Organization and the first for which there was a national competition. The first national pageant was held in August 2005 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.[1]

Unlike the Miss America pageant, there is no swimwear component of the teen competition: contestants compete in interview, evening wear, active wear, and talent.[citation needed]
