The Miss California Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of California in the Miss Teen USA pageant. This pageant is part of the Miss Universe Organization, owned by William Morris Endeavor (also known as WME).
California is in the top 5 most successful states at Miss Teen USA in terms of number and value of placements. Miss California Teen USA titleholders have been invited to red-carpet movie premieres, such as that for Santa Clause 3 attended by Kylee Lin, and She's the Man, attended by Jessica Powell.
Cameron Doan of Anaheim was crowned Miss California Teen USA 2021 on September 12, 2021 at San Gabriel Mission Playhouse in San Gabriel, California. She represented California for the title of Miss Teen USA 2021, finished in the top 16.
In the 1980s, the pageant was directed by Richard Guy and Rex Holt, who also oversaw the Miss California USA, Miss Texas USA and Miss Texas Teen USA pageants. They lost the contract in 1990, when it came up for renewal.
California holds a record of 22 placements at Miss Teen USA.
