Welcome to your state event! Our goal is to give you and your family a wonderful experience filled with encouraging memories. Our state events are designed to be a brief glimpse of what you can expect at our national competition.
Our Illinois event is open to all residents and out-of-state students attending an Illinois university. Surrounding states can compete for the open title, Miss Great Lakes. Members of the court and optional winners can choose to represent their city, county, or state region at Nationals by receiving an Excellence title.
