The Miss Connecticut Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Connecticut in the Miss Teen USA pageant. This pageant is directed Pageant Associates as of June, 2010.

Connecticut has been one of the least successful states at Miss Teen USA. In 2002, Ashley Bickford's placement followed the 4th runner-up placement of Miss Connecticut USA Alita Dawson, who had previously been Miss Connecticut Teen-USA 1997. This was Connecticut's highest joint placement, and the highest joint placement of any state that year. Dawson was one of four Miss Connecticut Teen-USA titleholder to later win the Miss Connecticut-USA title.

The Nutmeg state got its first national Miss Teen-USA victory when Logan West was crowned as Miss Teen USA 2012 on July 28, 2012 at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in Nassau, Bahamas.
