The Miss America pageant is a long-standing competition which awards scholarships to young women from the 50 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The winner of the national pageant is awarded the title of "Miss America" for one year (source: Wikipedia).
In January 2006, the pageant moved to its new home and time in Las Vegas, Nevada. The pageant presents itself as a "scholarship pageant," and the primary prizes for the winner and her runners-up are scholarships to the institution of her choice. The Miss America Scholarship program, along with its local and state affiliates, is the largest provider of scholarship money to young women in the United States and in the world. In 2006, the program made available more than $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance (source: Wikipedia).
The festive Miss America Beauty Pageant celebrates feminine charm and female aspirations to advertise feminine appeal and style optimism. The tradition dates back to earlier customs such as the high-minded debutante balls from the southern United States, depicted whimsically in the culture-fancy Hollywood (USA) movie "Gone with the Wind" (1939).
Does the ornate Miss America Beauty Pageant represent cosmetics vanity or beauty marketing? In the age of consumer wastefulness and high-speed Information Superhighway glamour where ambition-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Celebrity" (1998) are psychological signs of wealth, does the fancy Miss America Beauty Pageant offer delight?
Do beauty pageant contestants who fly into Las Vegas for the annual ornate event dine on cake and consider the realistic potential for inspiring female hero worship?
The charm-themed Hollywood (USA) movie "Miss Congeniality" (2000) explores the intriguing notion that social beauty pageants represent human jovialness.
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
