The Miss Oregon Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Oregon in the Miss Teen USA pageant.
Until Tennessee's victory in 2009, Oregon was the only state to win more than one Miss Teen USA title - they have produced three winners. The first two came within two years of each other, when Mindy Duncan won in 1988 and Bridgette Wilson won in 1990. Wilson went on to become a successful actress and was awarded a special "Distinguished Achievement Award" in 1998. The third came over a decade later, when Tami Farrell won the crown in 2003.
Oregon has received two other placements in Miss Teen USA history: 3rd runner up in 1984 and semi-finalist in 1993. They have also won two Miss Congeniality awards, in 2001 and 2003.
Only two Miss Oregon Teen USAs have won the Miss Oregon USA title and competed at Miss USA. Tami Farrell placed first runner-up at and later assumed the Miss California USA 2009 title after the dethronement of Carrie Prejean but did not compete at Miss USA.
Heather and Jenna Jones, Miss Oregon Teen USA titleholders for 1996 and 2005 respectively, are sisters.
