Physical Beauty no Longer to be Judged & Swimsuit Eliminated from 2019 Miss America Competition

Atlantic City, NJ...The Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization announced today groundbreaking changes for the “The 2019 Miss America Competition,” effective this September, by declaring that the 51 women representing their home states and the District of Columbia will no longer be judged on outward physical appearance. “The 2019 Miss America Competition” airs live on ABC, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th(9:00–11:00 p.m. EDT),from Atlantic City’s historic Boardwalk Hall.




This change in format signals the end of the swimsuit portion of the competition. In its place, each candidate will participate in a live interactive session with the judges, where she will highlight her achievements and goals in life and how she will use her talents, passion, and ambition to perform the job of Miss America.

The former evening gown competition will now give participants the freedom to outwardly express their self-confidence in evening attire of their choosing while discussing how they will advance their social impact initiatives. Talent, which has always been a distinguishing element of Miss America, will remain a highlight of the competition.

“We are no longer a pageant. Miss America will represent a new generation of female leaders focused on scholarship, social impact, talent, and empowerment” said Gretchen Carlson, Chair of the Board of Trustees, adding ”We’re experiencing a cultural revolution in our country with women finding the courage to stand up and have their voices heard on many issues. Miss America is proud to evolve as an organization and join this empowerment movement.”

The job of Miss America is a 365-day a year commitment of serving as an empowerment and leadership mentor. In addition to gaining scholarships to further her education, Miss America will advocate for social issues important to her. In addition to this work, Miss America also serves as an ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network and the city of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“Miss America’s new mission statement is: ‘To prepare great women for the world, and to prepare the world for great women,’” said Regina Hopper, President & CEO. “We want more young women to see this program as a platform upon which they can advance their desire to make a real difference and to provide them with the necessary skills and resources for them to succeed in any career path they choose.”

The Miss America Organization is proud to have the support and sponsorship of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), which provides us the opportunity to bring this event to Atlantic City and shine a national spotlight on the destination.

Global advertising agency Y&R is leading creative and branding work for the organization as Miss America enters a new era of progressiveness, inclusiveness and female empowerment.

Tickets for “The 2019 Miss America Competition” are on sale this Friday, June 8th, and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.

    Many women realize how much power they have in being "objects"! Some can seduce men into anything. Women have always had power

      The homos, the libs, and the pc crowd. A beauty contest with no beauty. Next a football game with no football, a boat race with no water, a rodeo with no horses, a dinner with no food, etc,etc
      When are the majority going to stand up to these imbeciles and say that's enough of this ridiculous crap? Shout them down just as they do. Fight fire with fire. OR, just let them crap all over you. Your choice.

    Yes I agree. I believe the most important things about the attributes are their personalities, what type of service work they have done for others-the caring and the sharing; to be compassionate and I believe having some intellect is important too. All those aforementioned things intstead of the fact that they have nice tan skin, perfect bodies 36-24-36 and socioeconomic backgrounds-most of them seem to come from well to do families. Let's just cut out all that materialistic crap and the almost nudity with bathing suits etc. Hell they got miss nude contests for that and all that materialism goes away. I say let them compete in just regular clothes-nice but not too fancy. It seems like we all live in this "plastic" world and materialism or mammon (old testament word) has taken over. And no-my opinion has nothing to do with or associated with any movement like democrats or LBGTQ movements. This is my own view. I think last year I saw an article on HomeComing King and Queen of Calaveras High School and they didn't seem-according to "norms of society" acceptable, but I'm glad they won those positions and they were both of different ethnic groups and also seemed like the very intelligent type. Kudos to them and I'm glad they won! So all these girls who go to these contests and pay big bucks for fancy hairdos (which a lot of others can't afford)-you ought to think about all of this and all the money you spend on your "dos" because someone who is not as popular may just get the title. Surprise! Surprise! The materialism, "plasticism," and phonyness has to go! You saw what happened on Revenge of the Nerds didn't you. There's a lot more "nerds" in this world than you think there is!

Another institution dismantled by the wack job left.

Here is how the byline should go: Swimsuit replaced with interactive
sessions with the judges. A round robin lap dance competition will determine
the final voting...
