Miss Omaha & Miss Douglas County's Teen
Miss America’s Teen, Inc. was organized to encourage positive achievement by helping to nurture and build the scholastic achievement, creative accomplishment, healthy living, and community involvement of our nation’s youth.
As a subsidiary of Miss America's Teen, the Miss Omaha & Miss Douglas County Scholarship Program hosts an annual day-long competition in August where two young ladies are named the new Miss Omaha's Teen and Miss Douglas County's Teen. These young ladies are awarded a scholarship and prize package and advance to compete at the Miss Nebraska's Teen competition the following June. As titleholders of the Miss Omaha & Miss Douglas County Scholarship Program, these young women will receive customized preparation from our dedicated board of volunteers as they prepare for the state competition. In addition to winning a cash scholarship of $2,300, the new Miss Nebraska's Teen receives access to full-ride in-kind scholarships to a number of different colleges and universities and advances to compete at the Miss America's Teen competition in July where she has the opportunity to win up to $30,000 in additional cash scholarships.
