Platforms Ideas

The platform list below is only a starting point. It is simply meant to give you some examples. It is always best to choose a platform that is close to your heart, or you have personal experience with. You will need to be passionate about your platform, as it will be a very important part of your year as Miss Sparta. This is the topic that you will speak about and endorse through your year. 

The National Platform of the Miss America Organization (MAO) is the Children's Miracle Network, and all MAO titleholders will support that platform in addition to their individual platform.
