The Miss Utah Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Utah in the Miss Teen USA pageant.From 2006, the pageant will be produced by Red Curtain Productions, which includes a number of former Miss Utah Teen USAs and Miss Utah USAs.
Utah is one of the least successful states at Miss Teen USA, having only placed five times. The first placement came in 1995, when Loni Sorden placed 2nd runner-up to Keylee Sue Sanders of Kansas. Utah was the fourth-to-last state (equal) to place at Miss Teen USA. Utah's second placement was in 2009, with Tasha Smedley making the top 15. The third placement was the following year, when Angelia Layton placed 3rd runner-up. In 2012, Keilara McCormick finished in the top 16, and in 2017 Rachel Bell placed in the top 15.
Four Utah teens have won the Miss Utah USA title and competed at Miss USA. The most recent of these is Marin Poole, Miss Utah Teen USA 2002 and Miss Utah USA 2005, who is also part of Red Curtain Productions. All three Miss Utah Teen USA winners who won the Miss Utah Teen USA titles went on to place at Miss USA like the Miss North Carolina USA titleholders.
