Welcome to the Miss International Pageants for DC, Maryland, and Virginia!
My name is Emily Giovinazzo, the Executive State Director of this amazing pageant system you won’t find anywhere else in the world. In an era where women are more empowered to showcase their individuality, achievements, and accomplishments, the Miss International Pageants provides the avenue for unique young women, just like you. The Miss International Pageants has a history of the highest integrity throughout their judging criteria, their pageant system, and among the contestants we highlight each year.
As a previous pageant queen and a contestant many times over, I fell in love with the women I met along the way. I was able to travel, create great friendships, form new relationships, and work on issues that were important to me. It expanded my network and gave me great appreciation for women supporting women.
As the state director for DC, Maryland, and Virginia, I am committed to support and provide the best experience for young women to celebrate their achievements with their family, friends, and community. We have come such a long way and it is important to me to help give the Cinderella experience to each girl I come across to let her know how capable and beautiful she can be, how beautiful she already is; inside and out.
My sincerest appreciation to the businesses and people of DC, Maryland, and Virginia who have supported this event. To the very generous sponsors, volunteers, and our Executive Committee, it is through your hard word and dedication that this program exists. Our pageant offers young women the opportunity to further their education through scholarships, win valuable prizes and gain experience and exposure which will benefit them as individuals in whatever career path they choose. The Miss International Pageant allows young women to be part of humanitarian projects throughout the state of DC, Maryland, and Virginia while fostering the professional and personal goals of young women.
It is my sincerest hope that each participating young woman will have gained a rewarding experience with new friends and lasting memories, and that in the years to come they will reflect upon this experience with great fondness. So what are you waiting for? We hope to hear from you soon!
