Miss American Coed celebrates its 40th Anniversary in style


The national Miss American Coed Pageant returned to its perennial home of Orlando, Florida to celebrate the 40th Anniversary Ruby celebration in a display of glamour and pageantry. To put this in perspective, the Miss American Coed Pageant has been instrumental in the personal development of women of varying ages for four decades. With this commitment to the respective delegates from across the country, it’s readily apparent why so many of those searching for the crowns and titles, as well as their families, return year after year to experience the glamour and family atmosphere during the national finals.

Like many pageants in the glamour lifestyle industry, Miss American Coed has grown and expanded the crowning opportunities over the past forty years. In addition to the coveted Miss American Coed title, contestants vie for the national titles of Miss American Princess, Miss American Sweetheart, Miss American Preteen, Miss American Junior Teen, Miss American Teen, Ms. American Coed, Ms. American Woman, and Ms. American Classic Woman. Additionally, Miss American Coed crowns national Victory queens, representing the divisions of Miss American Victory Princess, Victory Sweetheart, Victory Preteen, Victory Jr. Teen, Victory Teen, Victory Coed, and Ms. American Victory. During the Ruby Anniversary extravaganza, sixteen delegates would capture a national Miss American Coed title.

Miss American Coed week is more than just personal and stage competitions. It’s also a week of family and Miss American Coed fun. Although the week is replete with competitions and rehearsals, time is set aside for all in attendance to enjoy the experience, beginning with the evening’s Miss American Coed Ruby Reception following the initial day of Registration and Orientation. The week’s agenda also included the entertaining MAC’s Got Talent Showcase, and the Miss American Coed Pajama Party and Gift Exchange. These were welcome respites from the rigors of competing for a national title.

With a week of required and optional competitors complete, the 40th Anniversary Queens of Miss American Coed were announced, however with a surprise proclamation. As the crowd stood on its feet in applause and appreciation, Miss American Coed director Michelle Landry was summoned to the stage. In an emotional presentation, she was recognized and awarded an honorary Miss American Coed title by staff and delegates in recognition of her devotion and commitment to the Miss American Coed Pageant organization. With emotions at an all-time crescendo, the crownings commenced, beginning with the Miss American Coed Victory Queens: Miss American Victory Princess Larrah Brewster, Miss American Victory Sweetheart Joy Lander, Miss American Victory Preteen Jordyn Jones, Miss American Victory Jr. Teen Hensley Carroll, Miss American Victory Teen Christen Holloway, Miss American Victory Coed Melissa Oakes, and Ms. American Victory Danielle Van Kampen.

The stage was set for the crowning of the Ruby Anniversary national titles of Miss American Coed 2023. With screams of excitement and elation, the outstanding preparation and performances during the Miss American Coed finals were recognized: Miss American Princess Joanie Ewald, Miss American Sweetheart Adelyn Mckay, Miss American Preteen Raeleigh Yomtob, Miss America Jr. Teen Savanna Czachorowski, Miss American Teen Mackenzie Gardner, Ms. American Coed Allison Snyder, Ms. American Woman Trisha Williams, and Ms. American Classic Woman Rhonda Moulder.
