The USA Petite Pageant was founded in 2009 by Hazely Corp. Our pageant is designed especially for the petite beauty 5'6" or less. The focus of the USA Petite Pageant is to appreciate the beauty within our petite women in the U.S. by offering them opportunities and special recognitions upon their participation.


Our areas of competition include swimsuit, evening gown, panel style interview, and on stage question. We are looking for poised, graceful ladies that understand that their height is no limitation to fulfilling their dreams.
