Each candidate MUST first register via the link below on the Miss America website. Please designate whether you are a MISS or TEEN. A membership fee of $35 must be paid yearly in order to be eligible to compete for a local for both Teen and Miss. Once this is received, Miss Illinois (missILlocalreg@gmail.com) will send out a packet with information on how to find local competitions, etc. Once the candidate receives the packet, they will click on the link in the letter in order to register for our local. Miss candidates must pay a $75 fee for EACH local they decide to compete in. Teens do not have to pay the $75 fee. Teens will still need to register through the link provided in the teen letter and register for Miss Blackhawk Valley, however.

Additionally, Miss America encourages fundraising for scholarships via spotfund. Each candidate MUST sign up for an account, but no fundraising is required. While there is no fundraising minimum, we still highly recommend participation. Please use the fundraising profile link below to sign up for an account. Notice there are separate links for Teen and Miss. Please use the correct link when signing up for an account. These links will soon be available for use using the tabs below.
