The Miss Shoreline Scholarship Program is proud to be a local affiliate of the Miss Michigan and Miss America Organizations. Deeply rooted in the community, a local title holder has been crowned from the Muskegon area since the 1960's. In addition, we are proud to be the official home of the Miss Michigan program. This multi-evening program has been located in Muskegon, Michigan since 1950 and is run by a not-for-profit corporation providing scholarships to the deserving young women who compete for the title of Miss Michigan and Miss Michigan's Outstanding Teen.


The Miss America Organization is one of the nation’s leading achievement programs and the worlds largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women. Rich in history and social significance, the Miss America Organization is a not-for-profit organization that has maintained a tradition for many decades of empowering American women to achieve their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum in which to express their opinions, talent, and intelligence. Last year, the Miss America Organization and its State and local affiliates made available more than $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance. This assistance is not just for the handful of young women who become Miss America, but it is available to the over 12,000 young women who compete in the State and local competitions as well.

Miss Shoreline's Teen is a preliminary competition of the Miss Michigan's and Miss America's Teen programs promoting scholastic achievement, creative accomplishments, healthy living, and community involvement for America's teens.  The program aims to encourage and reward the talent, communication skills, community service, and academic achievement of girls between 13 and 18 years of age that reside in the State of Michigan. We encourage our local youth to participate in community to build character and gain the skills necessary for success in the real world, and we believe through participation, we are helping young people develop strong values, leadership skills, social conscience, self-worth and conviction about their own potential.

The young women crowned Miss Shoreline and Miss Teen Shoreline will promote their personal platforms throughout their reign while also serving as ambassadors for Miss America.

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
