Miss Illinois

The Miss Illinois program exists to provide personal and professional opportunities for young women and to promote their voices in culture, politics, and the community. The program provides a forum for today's young women to express their viewpoints, talents, and accomplishments to audiences during the telecast 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 America scholarship grants to further their educations.
