Amazing women have been involved with the Miss Arkansas Scholarship Competition system, providing inspiration as positive role models for young women of today. The Miss Arkansas Hall of Fame, established in 2011, honors former candidates who did not win the title of Miss Arkansas but continue to promote the ideals that the Miss America program represents.

Each year, two former candidates are selected to be recipients of this honor and become the newest members of the Miss Arkansas Hall of Fame.  Nominations may occur multiple times, although a former condidate can only be named to the Hall of Fame once.  These honorees are selected on excellence in the areas of:

Community Service/Involvement
Professional Achievement
Academic Achievement (post-competition)
Focus on the Family
Personal Strength
