Our program has been crowning a Miss Placentia each year since 1934. We became associated with the Miss America Organization in 1976 and since that time we have awarded over $150,000 in college scholarships to deserving young women. Miss Placentia, Miss Yorba Linda, Miss Placentia's Outstanding Teen, and Miss Yorba Linda's Outstanding Teen go on to compete for Miss California and Miss California's Outstanding Teen, respectively.
Past Miss Placentias usually do very well at Miss California. Several have been in the top five. Miss Placentia 1996, Stephanie Baldwin, became Miss California, placing in the top 15 at Miss America. Placentia's Outstanding Teen 2007, Jordan Krinke, went on to be Miss California's Outstanding Teen and Miss National Sweetheart 2013, in Hoopeston, Illinois.
Our purpose in this program is to help young women achieve their education and professional goals.
