Pennsylvania has been reasonably successful at Miss Teen USA. Their best decade was the 1990s, when they ranked fifth-equal in terms of number and value of placements . All but three of this state's placements came in the 1990s, with only one placement in the 1980s and two in the 2000s. The placement in 2000 was their best, however, when Jillian Parry captured the Miss Teen USA crown.
Three Pennsylvania teens have crossed over to win the Miss Pennsylvania USA title and compete at Miss USA.
Alexandra Jones of Monongahela was crowned Miss Pennsylvania Teen USA 2022 on April 24, 2022 at Richland Performing Arts Center in Johnstown. She will represent Pennsylvania for the title of Miss Teen USA 2022.
Pennsylvania holds a record of 11 placements at Miss Teen USA.
