Dick Clark Productions and The Miss America Organization plan to join for the 2015 Miss America Competition, regarding creative, marketing, sponsorship, licensing ticketing and distribution for the show.
“Dick Clark productions is the leader in live event television and we look forward to growing the show’s legacy and elevating the Miss America Competition for current and new generations of television viewers,” said Sam Haskell, Chairman and CEO, Miss America Organization.
The Miss America Competition was created to award scholarships for college and graduate school, as well as create a sense of community service through the national network it supports. The organization made $45 million in scholarships last year.
Sharon Pearce, President, Miss America Organization, said "DCP's expertise in live television is an excellent complement to our quality programming and proven history of empowering young women. This partnership will ensure the future of the Miss America Organization for generations to come."
The organization has been a leading provider of scholarships for women in America for 94 years. The 2015 Miss America Competition will air from Atlantic City, NJ on Sunday, September 14th on ABC from 8:00-11:00 PM ET.
