UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - May 29, 2019 - NBC and the Miss America Organization announced today that "The 2020 Miss America Competition" will air live on NBC. Discussions are currently underway with potential venues.

The show will continue to highlight a diverse group of young students and professionals who are advancing the message of female strength, independence and empowerment through their efforts in the areas of scholarship, talent and social impact. The Miss America Organization has ushered in a new era of progressiveness and inclusiveness, led by an all-female leadership team.

"Miss America is thrilled to be back home at NBC with our 100th anniversary just around the corner. NBC is the perfect partner to tell the real stories of these intelligent, talented and socially conscious young women who will be the country's next leaders," said Regina Hopper, Miss America President & CEO.

Over the last two years, the Miss America Organization and its state competitions have awarded nearly $6 million in scholarships.
