BEST Resource!

I listen to the Pageant Junkies Podcast whenever I can and the content is so relevant for young women everywhere, especially those interested in the Miss America program. As a new contestant, listening to interviews from former local & state titleholders, Miss America's, coaches, and insightful individuals has been "free preparation". Such a valuable resource!

Empowering Stories

The pageant junkies do much more than just talk about the Miss America organization- they find a way to promote the personal growth and empowerment of each titleholder who is accomplishing great things! It's amazing what these ladies have achieved through their reign, and it truly reveals the heart of the Miss America program.

LOVE!

The Pageant Junkies podcast is a positive, relevant source of information and inspiration both for those competing in the Miss America Organization, as well as those who don’t. The titleholders Carey features share wonderful stories and advice from their year of service that apply in so many life situations. Keep it up, Carey!
