The Miss Asheville Scholarship Program is a part of the Miss America network and the volunteers who run these programs do so much more than put on an annual competition. They create opportunities for the voices of young women to be heard across the nation.

​​We’d like to recognize and thank the Asheville/Blue Ridge Valley committee, parents, family members and volunteers who make this program so successful. We are so appreciative of our 25 dynamic committee members and over 40 committed volunteers who help our Queens, Teens and Princesses achieve their personal and professional goals. We are so grateful for every one of you!
