Welcome To The Official Miss District Of Columbia USA Site


Welcome to our website and the home of the 2016 MISS USA winner, Deshauna Barber! I am honored and humbled to serve as the Executive Director of MISS DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA USA and MISS DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA TEEN USA pageants. With over 30 years of experience in the beauty/fashion and recruiting industries, I believe that an organization is only as strong as its foundation. I am the proud mother of five beautiful daughters with my eldest daughter being Kamie Crawford, MISS TEEN USA 2010. I live each day by my motto, “If you can dream it, you can achieve it! through hard work and dedication. It is through that motto that I lead a household of young leaders into reaching their dreams. It is with that same dedication, I look to give the young women who strive to become the next MISS USA and MISS TEEN USA an opportunity and a platform to become leaders within their community and beyond. With guidance, leadership and a proven track record of success, I am excited to create a phenomenal environment in which young women across the District of Columbia are proud to compete in and form sisterhoods that will last a lifetime.

About the Miss Universe Organization

The Miss Universe Organization produces the internationally recognized MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA® and MISS TEEN USA® competitions. The MISS UNIVERSE® and MISS USA® competitions air as live specials and consistently rank among the most-watched television programming in the world.

The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) uses its global grassroots reach to empower women to be self-confident and strive to be their personal best. MUO believes that every woman should be “CONFIDENTLY BEAUTIFUL.” MISS UNIVERSE, MISS USA, and MISS TEEN USA beauty pageants provide an international platform through dedicated partnerships with charities, sponsors, and brands around the world. The Miss Universe Organization is committed to increasing HIV/AIDS awareness and increasing awareness of breast and ovarian cancers. By forging relationships with organizations committed to research and education such as the Latino Commission on AIDS, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Gilda’s Club, the women who champion these causes during their reign are armed to impact women today. During their reign, our winners are given the tools to personally and professionally enrich others by providing humanitarian efforts to affect positive change, all while developing their personal career goals. The titleholders of the Miss Universe Organization personify the combination of beauty and intelligence that defines the 21st Century.
