51st Anniversary Year
1970 - 2023
Celebrating more than 50 years of
Scholarship, Service, Success & Style
Our mission is to provide high energy events empowering girls to become world-changing women by promoting strong scholastic ideals, solid leadership principles and high character growth.
America’s National Teenager (ANTSO) is the longest running premier pageant for teens in the United States operating for more than 50 years. Founded in 1970, America’s National Teenager has graced the cover of magazines, television and national media as a role model of leadership, scholastic aptitude and service.
Combining the elements of Scholarship, Service, Success and Style, our ANTSO State and National Programs draw on a positive approach to pageantry that implements a scoring system focusing on a “real girl.” With no swimsuit or mandatory talent competition, ANTSO focuses on YOU, as a typical teen in your daily life, highlighting what makes you special! Our scoring system reflects that with 50% of the score focused on Academics, Community Service and Leadership and Interview!
