As the successor to the Miss Greater Rochester Pageant, Miss Flower City carries on the tradition of providing young women with scholarship, service and volunteer opportunities in Rochester, and Western New York.
Why Miss Flower City?
Rochester has its heritage in the early 1800’s as the largest miller of flour in the early United States, which is how it got the original nickname “Flour City”. Fast forward to today. Rochester has only a few specialty flour mills left. Instead we have the largest, most diverse collection of lilacs in the nation, perhaps the world. Rochester really is The Flower City, and it is thus quite fitting that we respect the heritage of our community by crowning a Miss Flower City.

The Miss New York Organization
The Miss New York Pageant is an official preliminary of the Miss America Organization and awards scholarships every year to young women. At a local, state and national level the pageant system gives the women the opportunity to promote a platform of community service. Miss New York will compete for the title of Miss America broadcast Live! on ABC. The Miss New York Scholarship Organization provides viable educational opportunities to the young women of New York through scholarships, service and volunteerism. It strives to recognize the intelligence, talent, moral character and personal commitment of its exceptional participants as they pursue excellence.
The Miss America Organization
The Miss America Organization is one of the nation’s leading achievement programs and the world’s largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women. Last year, the Miss America Organization and its state and local organizations made available more than $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance. Participating in the Miss America system not only helps young women pay for college and prepare for a career, it also provides an opportunity to gain additional life experience, working on issues of importance to society, enhancing your personal and professional skills and developing your performance-related and other talents.
