On behalf of the Miss Hilton Head Island Scholarship Organization, we’re inviting you to become one of our contestants in our Miss HHI Pre-Teen pageant set for Saturday, January 30th, 2016 at Hilton Head High School’s Seahawk Cultural Center. This will be our third year providing this educational competition experience and we are very proud of it as we were the first local to start this type of program in South Carolina.
The purpose of the program is to familiarize young women with the Miss South Carolina/Miss South Carolina Teen and Miss America/Miss America’s Outstanding Teen programs and to provide an opportunity for young ladies to win prizes, develop poise, confidence, and stage presence, enhance interview skills and offer opportunities for public appearances while serving in their community.
We know this program will have a positive influence on you. We welcome the entire family to come and experience the excitement throughout the competition weekend.
We follow the guidelines set forth by the Miss America Organization/Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Organization, therefore many rules and regulations cannot be changed.
Please be sure to review the Pre-Teen Competition Guidelines below. You may also download a copy of the Pre-Teen Competition Guidelines from the paperwork downloads section below. We highly recommend downloading a copy to use as a guide to help you during the weekend.

The interview session will take place on the morning of Saturday, January 30th. Please make sure that you arrive AT LEAST 15 minutes prior to the interview time.

Failure to abide by these rules will result in immediate dismissal from the pageant with no refund.
