We are the
best pageant program in the Gaston region!
Miss Gastonia Scholarship Association, Inc.
The Miss Gastonia Scholarship Association
is an official preliminary pageant program of the Miss North Carolina and Miss America organizations, serving a twelve-county
region in the western piedmont and southern foothills area of our state: Gaston, Cleveland, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Cabarrus,
Union, Rutherford, Catawba, Caldwell, Alexander, Burke, and Polk counties.
Our program is committed to promoting the four principles of Miss America:
Scholarship, Style, and Success.
Delores Cox serves as the executive director.
The people who
serve on our pageant committee are volunteers committed to
providing scholarship opportunities and enriching the lives of young women in our community.
We sponsor the Miss Gastonia Scholarship Pageant and the Miss Gastonia’s Outstanding
Teen Pageant each summer. The pageants are "stacked"
pageants, which means two winners are crowned – Miss Gastonia and Miss Gaston County and Miss Gastonia’s
Outstanding Teen and Miss Gaston County’s Outstanding Teen.
In 2017, the Miss Gastonia Scholarship Association received
rights from the state pageant organization to produce the Miss Mount Holly Scholarship Pageant.
Our Gastonia, Gaston County, and Mount Holly titleholders advance
to the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant and the Miss North Carolina’s Outstanding Teen Pageant.
