Star Hellas (Greek: Σταρ Ελλάς, Μις Ελλάς, Μις Γιάνγκ) is a national Beauty pageant in Greece.

The Star Hellas, Miss Hellas, Miss Young, title is a trademark for Vassilis Prevelakis and Associates E.E.

George Prevelakis, the founder of the company was the driving force behind the Hellenic Beauty Pageant since the late 1960s. From then onwards, he was closely associated with the pageant till his death in 2006. In the early 1980s the then owner of the pageant, the Apogevmatini newspaper, decided to pull out of the pageant and transferred the rights to George Prevelakis. George Prevelakis later founded a company (Vassilis Prevelakis and Associates E.E.), together with his son, Vassilis, and transferred the rights to the pageant to the new company. Vassilis Prevelakis and Associates E.E. has been the legal owner of the pageant and is the national director of the well known international pageants such as Miss World, Miss Universe[citation needed].

In the 1970s and early 1980s the pageant was aired every year from the Ellinikí Radiofonía Tileórasi. From 1990 to 2010, it was funded and aired on Greece's private network ANT1.

Because of the Greek financial crisis, ΑΝΤ1 did not fund the 2011 pageant which had the form of a low-key private casting and was not aired.[1] In 2012 the Star Hellas organizers staged a comeback by teaming with Internet site TLife which became responsible for the publicity of the event and for airing live over the Internet.[2]
