About Us

The Miss Gastonia Scholarship Association, Inc. is an official preliminary pageant program of the Miss North Carolina and Miss America organizations, serving a
ten-county region that includes Gaston, Cleveland, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Union, Rutherford, Catawba, Caldwell, Burke, and Polk counties.

Our program is committed to promoting the four principles of Miss America:     Service, Scholarship, Style, and Success. 

Delores Cox serves as the executive director.

The people who serve on our pageant committee are volunteers committed
to providing scholarship opportunities and enriching the lives of young women in our community.  The cash and in-kind scholarships made available to this year's contestants totaled more than $59,000.

We sponsor the Miss Gastonia Scholarship Pageant and the Miss Gastonia’s Outstanding Teen Pageant each summer.  The pageants are "stacked" pageants, which means two winners are crowned – Miss Gastonia and Miss Gaston County and Miss Gastonia’s Outstanding Teen and Miss Gaston County’s Outstanding Teen.

The four titleholders advance to the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant and the Miss North Carolina’s Outstanding Teen Pageant held in Raleigh in June.

Don't miss the opportunity to be a part of our exciting pageant program ...

Your Crown Awaits!

We are the best pageant program in the Gaston region!
