About Miss Tri-Cities Scholarship Program

The Miss Tri-Cities Scholarship Program, sponsored by the Tri-City Water Follies Association, is the one of the strongest community-based scholarship competitions in Washington State, offering over $20,000 in scholarships each year. We are an official preliminary to the Miss Washington and Miss America competitions.  In 2023 we are celebrating our 63rd year with the Miss America Organization.

The goal of the Miss Tri-Cities Scholarship Program is to inspire accomplishments and motivate personal achievement in young women to reach their educational goals and dreams.  Opportunities are provided for young women to expand their quest for knowledge and acquire skills to better equip them for future success. Most importantly, participants will have many occasions to develop their leadership skills, resulting in a greater sense of awareness of their potential. 

If selected as Miss Tri-Cities you will enjoy an exciting year of appearances and engagements. You will meet and interact with city and state officials, community leaders, and caring and giving volunteers who serve the Tri-Cities community.  Most importantly, you will be an ambassador for the Miss America Organization and a role model for young people in our community.
