Central IL and Springfield Scholarship Programs

Official Preliminary to the Miss Illinois and Miss America Programs.


About Us
The Miss Central Illinois and Miss Springfield Scholarship Programs are dedicated to the success of young women.  Miss Chatham Glenwood has been placed in 'holding' for this year but may return should the facility become available.  However Miss Central Illinois and Miss Springfield are both considered open pageants for contestants who either call Illinois home or attend higher education in the state of Illinois. Through community involvement, scholarships, and building good character through volunteerism, we hope to empower and enrich the lives of young women for years to come!
We are a non-profit organization and therefore we  depend on the community, corporations, and businesses to help us in our efforts to empower the young women in the Ball Chatham School District and young women throughout the state.
We also welcome the Teen and PreTeen Pageants to our pageant family.  Through the mentoring of the Miss contestants these young ladies will also acquire skills of good character to be beneficial throughout their life.
