There’s a new Miss Philadelphia in town! Elaine Ficarra is Miss Philadelphia 2021.

The Miss Philadelphia and Miss Philadelphia’s Outstanding Teen competition took place on May 1st at the CEG Performing Arts Academy on North Broad Street in Philadelphia. Kristen was one of the judges this year! Each winner receives a cash scholarship, and a full tuition scholarship to attend Cabrini University.  They will also represent Philadelphia at the Miss Pennsylvania state competition in June.

Hear as Kristen speaks with Elaine Ficarra, your newly crowned Miss Philadelphia 2021. Elaine is from Glenmoore, PA and attends Drexel University as an Honors Biology Student. She enjoys singing and Taekwondo. She is also passionate about her platform, which she hopes will spread awareness about adolescent depression and suicide prevention.

Elaine’s crowning marked the 100th Anniversary of the Miss Philadelphia Competition, and she is ready to hit the ground running. Be sure to say hello to Elaine if you see her out and about in Philly! You’re likely to run into her at one of the over 100 appearances she’ll make during her reign.

Find more about Elaine, the Miss Philadelphia Competition, sponsorship information, and how you could participate in the competition next year at MissPhiladelphia.org.
