USA Petite, the #1 pageant for women 5'6 and under, and the official preliminary to the Miss Universal Petite pageant, is now under new ownership. New owners Jordan Rhodes, entrepreneur with a Masters Degree in marketing and business, and Jenna Kienbaum, former USA Petite Miss 2017 and Miss Universal Petite 2018, seek to build on the legacy of former owner and founder, Hazely Lopez, by continuing to spotlight and empower petite women.


"Our mission for the USA Petite Pageant is to celebrate and build a community for petite women across the country. We want all petite ladies to feel limitless regardless of their height.” says Kienbaum. “USA Petite allows us to give attention to the personal, professional, and community accomplishments of petite women, a group that has historically been underrepresented in the pageant industry.” added Rhodes.


2020 marks the 10 year anniversary of the USA Petite Pageant. The pageant system is currently accepting applications for the 2020 national pageant, which is set to be held Fall 2020 in Chicago. For more information or to apply, go to
