An official preliminary to the Miss America Scholarship Pageant, the Miss Texas Pageant, Inc. has a rich history of empowering young women to achieve their dreams and goals. Larger than the young women who have held the title of Miss Texas is the volunteer team and "pageant family" who have dedicated their lives to ensure these young women have every opportunity available to them through this transformational pageant system.

Produced by the Miss Texas Pageant, Inc., the Miss Texas competition exists for the purpose of providing personal and professional opportunities for young Texas women and promoting their voice in culture, politics and community.

The competition was founded in 1936 by a group of civic minded citizens concerned about higher education. The first Miss Texas Scholarship Pageant has evolved into what is recognized today as one of the best organized and well-managed of all state pageants.

The Miss Texas competition provides a statewide forum for today's young women to express their viewpoints, talents and accomplishments to Texas audiences the evening of the web cast and to the public at large during the ensuing year. Almost all contestants have either received or are in the process of earning college or postgraduate degrees and utilize Miss Texas scholarship awards for furthering their education. Hundreds of young women participate each year in the local pageants, culminating in the selection of local finalists who vie for the Miss Texas title each July.
