Years of Slavery and Bondage
Competing Contestants Nationwide
Historically Rooted National Progam. Powered by Education & Empowerment
The Miss Juneteenth USA Pageant is an educational and scholarship-driven program that focuses on community service, education, and cultural awareness. Juneteenth pageants, in truth, have been held for decades in several states, including Colorado, Oregon, Delaware, Florida, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Illinois, and Texas. Many wanted to continue the tradition of celebrating our young women on a national platform, thus, the first National Miss Juneteenth Scholarship Pageant Program (NMJSPP) was held, in 2020, in Memphis, Tennessee, and in 2021, in historic Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In 2020, the Inaugural National Miss Juneteenth Scholarship Pageant received national recognition from the New York Times, NBC News, Yahoo News, Insider, and MSNBC. These pageants have inspired young women to compete not only for the honor of being “Miss Juneteenth” but for the privilege of representing one’s best self with confidence, humility, and pride.

Welcome To The Miss Juneteenth USA 2023 Foundation
Where we empower one another to BE MORE, DO MORE, and walk in unapologetic PURPOSE.
The National Miss Juneteenth USA Foundation is designed to encourage and empower young African American women to embrace their diversity and culture while pursuing higher educational goals and are accompanied by lessons in our shared historical legacies. This national platform aims to showcase the beauty, poise, and rich culture of the African American experience, where we strive to preserve, represent and embody what Black Excellence means today.
Meet Madison Corzine, who took her place in history as the third reigning Queen of the Miss Juneteenth USA Pageant. Madison hails from Fort Worth, Texas, and is divinely connected to Juneteenth as the granddaughter of the "Grandmother of Juneteenth" herself, Dr. Opal Lee. The beauty of this story is not only the fact that it provides a platform for our youth, but also magnifies positive ways to interact and engage in urban communities across the nation.
Madison, at only 16, is very active in the community and is at the helm of her very own non-profit organization called Pragmatic Prodigies, whose initiatives tackle period poverty for young women. She is also very passionate about persuading youth to vote!
Follow Madison's journey on her social media channels to get an insider's view of a "Day in the Life" of a true Juneteenth Queen, role model, and change maker. Congratulations again to our 2022 Miss Juneteenth Queen for a job exceptionally well done.
