“We are here to hear”

The mission of Woman of Achievement is to recognize & develop women leaders in their communities. We host two signature events for women: The International Woman of Achievement Leadership Weekend inviting women from cultures worldwide to present women’s issues, perform and/or speak while meeting and networking with other outstanding women. The second event, our U.S. National event is the Ms. & Mrs. U.S. Woman of Achievement Pageant which is a three-day leadership pageant weekend where women can present their platform work, interview and compete for the titles of Mrs. U.S. WOA and Ms. U.S. WOA. All events culminate in various awards including cash grants to women with community service, excellence in public speaking, or excellence in academic achievement & the arts.

    Apply to be a State
    or International Delegate
    We want to hear your story:

    NOTE: If for any reason a contestant competes or arrives to compete but full payment is not cleared by or during pageant weekend or is somehow voided while she is participating, she will not be able to be crowned and her first runner up will automatically be named as the winner.

    Delegates 60 and over who  wish to represent their country and cultural heritage at INTERNATIONALS in September:  $250 plus $895 which includes ad page and full weekend activities. 

    Delegates 60 and over who  wish to represent their STATE at U.S. Nationals:  $200 Title Reserve, $795 Entry which includes color ad in the program book, official Coronation Luncheon, Workshops and Networking events.

    *Delegates are highly encouraged to enter the age division they are qualified for. If you are on the border of the age requirement, we urge you to go into the upper age division. When you enter a younger age division you take the risk of a more difficult competition ratio.

    While it is your choice to enter a lower age division (if you are in reasonable “range” of that division) consider the risk in competition factors as it typically puts you at a disadvantage rather than advantage.

    Until the National Woman of Achievement Leadership Weekend!
