Miss USA Pageant...

Miss USA and Miss Teen USA

The Miss Universe Organization is a company run by women for women, built on a foundation of inclusion and continues to be a celebration of diversity. Each year nearly 10,000 young women participate in Miss Universe pageant events. The contestants and titleholders that have gone through the Miss Universe system are able to cultivate their personal career goals, advocate for humanitarian issues and be a voice to affect positive change in the world. These women are forward thinking and motivated to not just talk about this change, but to initiate it. They have gone on to high-profile careers in government, business, finance, broadcasting, as well as film and television.

In 2018, Shreveport-Bossier will host the Miss USA Pageant and the Miss Teen USA pageant, giving the world a view into our community. The Miss USA Pageant will air live from George's Pond at Hirsch Coliseum on Monday, May 21, 2018.
