The Louisiana Pageant is an official state pageant of the Royal International Miss Pageants. Empowering young women while giving them the opportunity to grow and develop a positive self-image is the focus of the Royal International Miss Scholarship Program. By providing opportunities for young women and girls to cultivate their talents and public speaking abilities, we help facilitate poise and self-confidence. Working to offer opportunities that build life long memories and providing experiences which build life-long friendships is part of our mission. Through the promotion of good sportsmanship, we hope to be a guiding force in the development of strong delegates who realize the true beauty, which lies within each of them.
