The mission of the Miss Virginia Latina™ and Miss Teen Virginia Latina™ pageants is to empower and inspire Latina young girls and young ladies to embrace and showcase their Latino roots and heritage while living, studying, serving, and working alongside other young girls and young ladies in their own communities.  The Miss Virginia Latina and Miss Teen Virginia Latina pageants provide an excellent forum where participants are exposed to professional and personal development and growth, while taking part, alongside other fellow Latinas, in a program where not only their physical attributes, but also their talents, viewpoints, and personal accomplishments are acknowledged and celebrated.  

The Miss Virginia Latina™ and The Miss Teen Virginia Latina™ are the preliminaries to Miss U.S. Latina™ and Miss Teen U.S. Latina™; the most prestigious and well known pageant in the world for U.S. Latinas, as well as the longest-running  (since 1983).  It is also the only national Latina pageant in the U.S. That follows traditional guidelines for participants and affiliate preliminary competitions.
