APPOINTED NATIONAL TITLES (International & Puerto Rico)

These titles go to women all over the world where we may not YET have a pageant. To be awarded an appointed national title from another country, you may either live in that country, or have a hereditary connection. These titles are awarded based on application. There is no appointed national title for Miss, Ms. or Mrs. USA. The benefit of a national title is that it is good for the entire calendar year, so if the Continental Worldwide title eludes you at the pageant in July, you will continue to be Miss, Ms. or Mrs. Finland, for example, through 12/31/23!

Appointed national titles receive all of the above with an upgraded, national crown (Ms. division crown pictured right); beautiful double rhinestone (front and back) sash. Appointed national titles are $1125.
