The Carolina Princess Program is a mentoring program within the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Program. Each Miss and Outstanding Teen candidate is encouraged to mentor at least one Carolina Princess each year. We have some exciting activities planned for our Carolina Princess participants every year, and look forward to the bonds created with our Miss Capital City, Miss Clayton, and Miss Cleveland sisterhood of titleholders. Please encourage friends and neighbors of your Miss, Outstanding Teen, and Carolina Princess to consider the program as well, as it builds relationships and experiences that last a lifetime. During orientation, the Carolina Princess and her parent(s) will also receive details of the activities planned and the expectations for them at Miss North Carolina in June if their Miss or Outstanding Teen is crowned on March 2, 2019.

Fundraising in our community is how we support our scholarships and continue to grow the program for these young women. Each year, we recognize the leadership skills shown by our Carolina Princesses through on-stage award for the most fundraising by a CP. We have two major methods provided for obtaining this award:

CMN Hospitals Fundraiser

  • Pick a social impact initiative (a cause or charity) that is close to you, and make an attention-grabbing poster. Leave open space, so that signatures can be collected from friends, family, and supporters, collect $1 or more for each signature, and see if you can fill your poster!
  • Check out the 2018 Carolina Princess posters for inspiration. These will be displayed in the lobby of The Clayton Center at our pageants.

Program Ads

  • All Miss and Outstanding Teen candidates and Carolina Princesses are encouraged to sell ad space to their community sponsors and supporters. Ads should be submitted electronically for publication in the pageant program. Ads can be emailed to The deadline for receiving ads is 5:00 pm on February 21, 2019. Ads will be sized according to the space purchased.
  • Ad prices for sponsors and supporters are as follows:
    • $100 for full page   $60 for half page   $40 for quarter page
      • Parents of Carolina Princesses may purchase ads at half of the prices listed above.

Raffle Tickets

  • All Miss and Outstanding Teen candidates and Carolina Princesses are asked to sell raffle tickets. This giveaway is very popular each year, as there are multiple chances at winning. Winners will be drawn at the pageant, although they do not need to be present to win. Please be sure to record a name and phone number on the tickets provided so that we may contact them if they are not present. Prizes for this raffle are a Coach purse, a new iPad and an MHR jewelry set.
  • Raffle ticket prices are: $5 for 1 ticket or $20 for 5 tickets.

Carolina Princess Program as a Local Titleholder

If your Carolina Princess’s candidate is crowned, they will have the opportunity to fulfill the duties of a titleholder’s Carolina Princess at the local level.

Carolina Princesses may be required to attend “Work Weekend” along with their titleholder, pending confirmation from the State Committee.

  • April 2019 in Greensboro for Miss titleholders
  • March 15-16, 2019 for Outstanding Teen titleholders

Participation in the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant week comes next, in June 2019 in Raleigh. There may be additional costs associated with Work Weekend and the Miss NC pageant, and more information will come from the state program after our crowning in March. Carolina Princesses will also be expected to attend events and appearances with their titleholder throughout the year, building the mentor relationship and skills through the sisterhood.
