Miss Florida & Miss Florida USA Pageants

July 5, 2009

The Miss Florida and Miss Florida USA Pageants are happening this week and next. As we found out while researching another article ("Miss Florida Appearing in the Ft. Myers Beach Fourth of July parade"), there are several "Miss Florida" Pageants with slightly varying names. The Ft. Myers parade had "Miss Florida US International". While their event was in April, there are two events happening in different Florida locations now. One is for "Miss Florida" and the other is for "Miss Florida USA".

The beautiful young woman to the left is Damaris Aguiar, representing Hialeah in the "Miss Florida USA" Pageant. This is the only televised Miss Florida Pageant, and it is a lead in to the larger "Miss USA" national event. While this pageant occurs next week in Hollywood, the "Miss Florida" pageant is happening now, running this week in downtown St. Petersburg.

The Miss Florida USA® and Miss Florida Teen USA® Pageants are the official qualifiers towards Miss Teen USA®, Miss USA® and Miss Universe®. Each delegate has to qualify at a local preliminary pageant and either win her way to state or qualify as a local finalist, or win a Miss Photogenic or Miss Amity award. Qualifiers can have the option of competing at the state level if they pay the registration fee.

Miss Florida USA is scheduled for July 14-18, 2009 at The Westin Diplomat Resort and Hotel on Hollywood Beach. Our host, The City of Hollywood, will be the site of several events and pre-tape sessions prior to state. The mandatory Miss Florida USA Seminar Day has been scheduled for June, 2009.

The Miss Florida Teen USA 2010 Pageant is tentatively scheduled for the first weekend in October, again in Hollywood. The mandatory Miss Florida Teen USA Seminar Day has been historically the first Saturday in September. This will be announced in the next few weeks.
