About the Event
- Miss Nepal US 2012 is a grand beauty pageant for the young Nepali women of the age group 18 to 27 from all across the USA. A singular event of glamour and glory, Miss Nepal US 2012 will celebrate the arts and culture of Nepal and crown intelligence, talent and beauty. The entire event is inspired by the goal of inculcating a sense of connectedness in every Nepali who has created a home away from home in United States.
A dedicated team of outstanding mentors will provide ample support and world-class training for every participant to attain her best self and compete for the coveted title of Miss Nepal US 2012. Here is a chance for every aspiring young girl who has travelled to this ‘land of opportunity’ to earn international fame and add wings to her dreams. Amid wide acclaim and new avenues of success, the winner will be a youth icon and add glory to the Nepali community in USA.
We aim at identifying talented young women who can uphold our national pride in United States and around the world. We pride ourselves in the fact that our judging criteria for the Miss Nepal US are grounded on our search for an inner beauty which the participants shall display through their intelligence and meritorious conduct throughout the competition. Hence, participants are not required to expose their body in swimsuits. In fact, we have intentionally abandoned such need for this pageant. The winner for the beauty pageant will be chosen based on their personality, overall attitude, public speaking skills, talent and their ability to form intellectual opinions on issues of national and international concern.
Just as much as Miss Nepal US 2012 is about felicitating the winners of this beauty-with-brain contest, it is about Nepal and every other Nepali. With the motto of ‘Empowering Youths, Promoting Nepal’, the event will serve as a platform for all the participants to achieve their personal, professional and philanthropic goals with valuable interactions and experience of empowerment gained throughout the contest.
Audition for the final 30 contestants begins from July at major cities, strategically selected to cover the Nepali diaspora in USA. The participants apply online and show up for the audition at different venues. Click here for the audition dates and venues.
The final event slated for August 11, 2012, in Washington DC Metro will be a spectacular gala of 30 amazing women contesting for the prestigious title of Miss Nepal US 2012. The event shall be graced by members of jury and dignitaries who have achieved eminence in their life along with spectacular performances and cuisine to perk us all up.

- INSPIRE every Nepali woman, to make of herself, a woman of success who pursues a life of purpose and meaningful engagement.
