December 2016 I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree! The Livingston Foundationâ€™s amazing scholarship award played a huge part in helping me achieve that goal. Thank you so much to everyone at the Miss High School America Organization and at the Livingston Foundation for helping to make my educational dreams come true!!

The Livingston Foundation’s generosity is the reason I am able to attend the University of Alabama and pursue my dream of becoming a television news reporter. At the University of Alabama, I have been given real world experiences and opportunities as an on-air talent for Alabama Athletics and as an editor for WVUA 23 News. The financial support from the Livingston Foundation is and will always be greatly appreciated!

Itâ€™s extremely difficult to put my feelings towards this organization in just a few sentences. This is more than just a pageant, itâ€™s an experience, one like no other. I have been involved with the Miss High School America Organization since 2013 and have firsthand seen the positive impact this system makes on the lives of those competing and their communities
—Sammi Mazza, Miss New Jersey Collegiate 2019
What the Miss High School organization has given me is substantially more than a crown and sash. The opportunities provided didn’t benefit me for just a year. I am reminded everyday of the endless support, connections, and memories I made. I firmly believe in the Miss High School Organization and what it stands for. It stays relevant by promoting confidence, leadership, service, scholarship, friendship, poise, and an essential anti-bullying platform. There truly is no other organization like it. Everyone will gain something valuable from the experience, no matter how they are involved!

This system is everything you could possibly want for your daughter wether she wins or not. The experience and growth we have gained from it has far more surpassed any other system.
—Yolanda Weatherspoon, Mother of Miss DC Collegiate 2013
I am so grateful for the confidence, leadership skills and friendships I've gained as a result of my involvement in the MCA System. This system provides girls with a platform, a voice and a tremendous support network. I'm happy to see our titleholders making positive changes in their communities while achieving their own person and professional goals.

Kyndal is much better prepared for College directly as a result of preparing, competing, and interacting with everyone involved at your the Miss High School America Pageant.
—Rick Hayes, Father of 2010 Miss Collegiate America
No other pageant I have ever participated in had the positive atmosphere and wonderful direction as MHSA. Every single one of us felt like queens and felt blessed to have the opportunity to give back to the community of San Antonio. The experience was once in a lifetime!
—Callie Atkins, Miss Tennessee Collegiate 2011
The Miss High School America Organization provided me with an amazing scholarship, the year of a lifetime, and a forever sisterhood.

I am so thankful for this organization and everything it does to empower young women!
