The Miss Fulton County Scholarship Program was founded with the desire to empower young women to strive for excellence when pursuing personal and professional goals while becoming instruments of change within their communities. Through the Miss America Organization (MAO), increased opportunities have become available to young women to further their educational and professional pursuits. The Miss Fulton County pageant is a franchise of the Miss Georgia Scholarship Organization designed to provide scholarship opportunities to young women in the Metro-Atlanta area. As a non-profit organization, we depend on the community, corporations and businesses to help us in our efforts to empower the young women in the areas we serve. For the past 27 years, our pageant has helped numerous young women realize their goals and this is evidenced by the unprecedented success and accomplishments of the women who have worn the Miss Fulton County Crown as well as competed in the Miss Fulton County Pageant.
Not only has the MAO helped thousands of young women define their life’s mission and reach goals, but also to understand what the four points of the crown stand for and mean to them. Style, Success, Scholarship but above all Service, must be the guiding lights by which these women all lead, not only their platforms, but also their lives.
