Join us for the Miss University of Tennessee at Martin Scholarship Pageant on Sunday, September 10, 2023 in Watkins Auditorium of the Boling University Center on the UT Martin Campus. Contestants should contact Pageant Director Katrina Cobb at with any questions.

The Miss University of Tennessee at Martin Scholarship Pageant is a preliminary to the Miss Tennessee Volunteer Scholarship Pageant held each July in Jackson, Tennessee. Miss Tennessee Volunteer, a part of the Miss Volunteer America system, is a statewide, service-oriented scholarship program seeking to empower young women through education and opportunity.

The Miss Tennessee Volunteer system plays a vital role in the education of the young contestants of our state and is recognized as one of the top providers of scholarships for young women in Tennessee. This year alone, Miss Tennessee Volunteer awarded our 36 contestants almost $100,000 in college scholarships. Miss Tennessee Volunteer also serves as Governor Lee’s Official Spokesperson for Character Education throughout her reign.

Symbolism of the Miss Tennessee Volunteer Crown

Each of the 5 points on the crown represents a principle in our organization’s mission. Together, the first letter of each of those five principles spells:

S. E. R. V. E.
