Meet the women representing your community.
They are the recipients of regional scholarships towards the academic pursuits of their choosing.
Each has selected a social cause to champion, and must now use her title to unlock new levels of influence.
This summer, each will represent her area at the Miss New York State Scholarship competition. One will go on to represent our state at the Miss America competition.
They are students, professionals, advocates - each fighting to improve herself and her community. Their success will be measured by the impact they leave behind.
