On May 15, 2011, girls and women of all ages from all across the southeastern U.S. will come together at the Marriott Executive Park in Charlotte, NC to compete in the first ever southeast regional pageant for the Miss U.S. of America system.
The pageant is open to girls and women of all ages from southeastern states, with the option to compete in talent, modeling, and photogenic competitions. The contestants will be competing for eleven prestigious southeastern U.S. of America titles as well as several other awards and prizes. Winners and award recipients over the age of 4 will have an opportunity to move on to compete for $20,000 in prizes at the 13th national Miss U.S. of America pageant to be held in Connecticut in August 2011. The Miss Southeast U.S. of America pageant will proudly donate a portion of their proceeds to both United Cerebral Palsy as well as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
