"The USA National Miss Scholarship Organization is a national pageant program that combines all the beauty and excitement of pageantry with the glamour and energy of a runway fashion show," said USA National Miss Executive Director Jackie Watson. "The pageant also recognizes the personal achievement, community involvement and academic excellence of young women all across the USA."
The America's Choice competition is live. Your vote for Clara helps to secure her spot as a semi-finalist. The voting portion of the competition gives one delegate from each division a second chance at the crown by keeping them in the competition, joining the Top 15 finalists. One vote per Facebook user will be allowed for each delegate.
The competition will close on July 22 at 5 p.m. EST. You can vote here.
Clara will compete in evening gown, interview and a runway fashion show event in order to claim the honor of being crowned the national winner. The judging panel includes a former Miss America!
