Miss America Partnership

Global Game Changers and Miss America are excited to announce an education partnership thanks to aligned missions and outreach.

The partnership of the two organizations is based on a shared commitment to service, talent development, and education. For over 80 years, the Miss America program has provided scholarship opportunities for contestants. It also places a strong emphasis on contestants’ showcasing their talents and engaging in social impact initiatives. Global Game Changers Student Empowerment program uses service and talent development as tools to develop social, emotional, and leadership skills in Pre-K-5th grade students through its free online curriculum.

This partnership will provide Miss America titleholders across the country with classroom tools, as well as a scholarship opportunity for Miss America candidates pursuing or planning to pursue a career in elementary education.

School Visits

Titleholders in the Miss America system will be able to access and use a booklet full of fun activities for each month, themed around the Global Game Changers 12 Heart Badges: Animals, Arts, Basic Needs, Bullying, Education, Elderly, Environment, Health, Human Rights, Rescue, Veterans, and General. This booklet, available on GGC’s online Educator Portal, will enhance the regular school visits that titleholders already make as part of their year.

For more information on how to access the booklet, reach out to Global Game Changers. If you are a state/local director, we’re happy arrange a call to review the resource in more detail.
