California United America Pageant


A warm welcome from Parlisha Watts-Andrews, 5-time pageant winner, California Director/Ambassador

Welcome to the California United America Pageant!  What a wonderful opportunity to encourage little girls and ladies to believe in education, etiquette, inward beauty and self confidence.

The California United America Pageant is a State Preliminary to the National United America Pageant, based in Austin, TX.  The United America Pageant System honors ladies who successfully balance education, career, family life, and volunteerism with grace and beauty.  Our Teen and Adult California Queens advance to the National level, and compete in Texas every year.  Our Little Miss and Junior Miss Queens make appearances in California, and reign for one-year.

Categories are: 

Little Miss 5-8 yrs & Jr. Miss 9-13 yrs

Teen  (single, never married)  14-18 yrs

Miss 19-27 yrs. (single, never married)

Ms. 23 & up (any marital status)

Lady 30-50 yrs. (any marital status) 

Elite 40 & up (any marital status)

Mrs. 21 & up (married) 

Petite 19 & up (any marital status 5'6" or shorter)

There is no swim suit competition, or size requirements.  United America teaches that beauty begins within.  We compete in interview, Fashion Fun Wear, and Evening Gown.
