Miss Teen USA 2022 will be crowned on October 1


Miss Teen USA 2022, the 40th edition of the annual Miss Teen USA pageant, will be held on October 1 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada.

At the culmination of the event, last year's winner Breanna Myles of Florida will crown her successor among 51 teens representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Like the Miss USA pageant on October 3, Miss Teen USA is produced by The Miss Brand Corporation, under the leadership of Crystle Stewart.

This year's venue, which was announced in July, was chosen to honor Cheslie Kryst's memory and keep her legacy alive, as this is where she was crowned Miss USA in 2019.
