The Miss Arkansas Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Arkansas in the Miss Teen USA pageant.

From 1986 until 2004, when Sarah French won Miss Photogenic, no Miss Arkansas Teen USA had placed or won an award at the national competition. New directors, the Vanbros group who also direct the Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Oklahoma pageants, took over the management of the pageant in 2007 and since that time Arkansas had placed at Miss Teen USA three consecutive years, including Stevi Perry winning their first Miss Teen USA title in 2008.

Three Miss Arkansas Teen USA titleholders have gone on to win the Miss Arkansas USA title and three have won Miss America state titles, more than any other state.
