About the Miss Idaho Organization

This not-for-profit organization awards college scholarship to outstanding young women of our state, and its mission is more critical than ever in this time of inadequate funding for education in Idaho. The Miss Idaho Organization stands as a shining example of what can be accomplished when college women are challenged and encouraged to achieve ambitious goals.

The community service aspect of the Miss Idaho Organization propels contestants into arenas of prominence where policy is made, laws are enacted or changed, crucial funding is realized, and lives are positively affected. Contestants work for causes represented by their personally chosen platforms which may include Cancer research and education, organ donation, child enrichment and mentoring programs, senior citizen advocacy, arts and cultural organizations, and many others.
