The Carolina Princess Program was established 18 years ago for young girls ages 6-12. It is a mentoring program in which the Carolina Princesses are mentored by local Miss North Carolina and Miss North Carolina's Outstanding Teen contestants for the year of their reign. The Carolina Princess is encouraged to join her mentor in as many appearances, volunteer opportunities and other events as possible. Carolina Princesses are present the week of the Miss North Carolina pageant and Miss North Carolina's Outstanding Teen pageant.
On the local level the Miss Statesville Organization include their princesses in their production and activities leading up to their pageant. Winners of the Miss Statesville and Miss Statesville OT will have their princesses whom they have chosen accompany them to the Miss NC and Miss NCOTeen pageant each June.
