Chelsea Welch, Miss West Virginia Teen USA 2007

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

Despite a relatively strong start in the 1980s, with two semi-finals finishes, no Miss West Virginia Teen USA placed from 1988 to 2005, when Andrea Turner placed 2nd runner-up to Allie LaForce of Ohio. After this, West Virginia had more success, with more placements in 2007, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Three Miss West Virginia Teen USA's have also won the Miss West Virginia USA title and competed at Miss USA.
