Miss Tustin provides over $5,000 in scholarships to it's contestants each year. Our goal is to help every contestant reach their academic goals. Last year, the Miss America Organization and it's State and Local competitions distributed $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance! Some contestants are able to pay for their entire education through this Organization.
Being a Miss Tustin titleholder means being a representative of the City of Tustin and presenting yourself in a professional and modern way. Each year we help our contestants find ways to express themselves through interview and event appropriate attire. We emphasize modesty, relatability, and professionalism, making them great role models for young women.
During her year of service, Miss Tustin attends many events in the City including the Tustin Chili Cook-Off, Tustin Tiller Days, Man and Woman of the Year, Chamber mixers, ribbon cuttings, City Council meetings, etc. She also visits local schools, performing her talent, speaking about her platform, and encouraging young people to pursue their academic and career goals, and to have a voice in their community. Miss Tustin raises money throughout the year for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
The Miss Tustin Scholarship Program provides young women and opportunity to gain life experience, develop thoughts about important social issues, enhance their professional skills and appearance, and make a difference in the lives of others. Our contestants set specific goals for themselves and accomplish them. Many contestants say this program led them to self-discovery, igniting passion they never knew they had. Women leave the Miss America Program with tools to be successful in all areas of life.
