Miss Tennessee Volunteer Scholarship Pageant

June 15, 2021
During the third week of June, for the past 68 years, women from across the State of Tennessee have converged upon Jackson for a week of individual growth and empowerment by participating in our annual competition for scholarship awards and the chance to serve as the Governor’s Spokesperson for Character Education for the year. Contestants, parents, volunteers, and friends have joined sponsors, professional entertainers, orchestras, dancers and live internet streaming and television crews to create a winning combination of promise, achievement and aspiration.

The Miss Tennessee Volunteer Scholarship Pageant, formerly the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Pageant, continues the legacy of pageantry in Tennessee.  The tradition will continue into its 69th year in Jackson, Tennessee at the Carl Perkins Civic Center from June 16-19, 2021, in order to carry on the longstanding legacy of assisting young women in our state acquire higher education through scholarships. The custom also continues for the people and local businesses in Jackson and throughout West Tennessee, who have generously supported the program in our community for decades.

This week, you will see many familiar faces both onstage and behind the scenes. Allison Alderson DeMarcus and husband Jay DeMarcus, of country supergroup Rascal Flatts, will continue to co-emcee the nightly competition.  In addition, though not always onstage, there will be more than 100 pageant volunteers present not only from Jackson, but across the entire state from as far away as Greenville, Tennessee. Our dedicated volunteers commit thousands of hours annually to the program and these young women.

Over the past 11 years alone, over $1,000,000 in scholarships have been awarded to contestants who have competed in Jackson.  In 2021, The Miss Tennessee Volunteer Scholarship Pageant will continue that tradition by offering scholarships exceeding $100,000.

Join the Miss Tennessee Volunteer Scholarship Pageant, June 16 to 19, 2021 as it remains at the Carl Perkins Civic Center, Jackson, Tennessee.  For more information visit our Facebook page Miss Tennessee Volunteer Scholarship Pageant.
