A very special evening with Miss America 2020, Camille Schrier!

International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2020 is a day to achieve full and equal access to, and participation in, science for women and girls. On this day, we are delighted to announce that Camille Schrier, Miss America, will be joining us for a very special evening at our Global Learning Conference in Arizona!

In December 2019, Camille earned the job of Miss America 2020 after competing live on NBC, and in 2020, Camille will travel over 300 days this year to share her message and advocate for change.

In 2018, Camille, who lives with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, graduated with honors from Virginia Tech with dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Biochemistry and Systems Biology, and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Pharmacy at Virginia Commonwealth University.

In June of 2019, Camille was named Miss Virginia after breaking from tradition to perform the “catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide” as her onstage talent.

Through 2020 Camille will use the Miss America national recognition to promote her own social impact initiative, Mind Your Meds: Drug Safety and Abuse Prevention from Pediatrics to Geriatrics. Camille has also been awarded the Engineering Champion Award by the Phi Sigma Rho National Sorority for her work in promoting women in engineering and technical fields.

We are delighted to offer tickets for “An Audience with Miss America” where you can watch Camille being interviewed and have the opportunity to ask your questions. We also have a limited number of “An Evening with Miss America — VIP Package” tickets available.
