Jessi Pierson, Miss West Virginia USA 2009
Jessica Wedge, Miss West Virginia USA 2006

The Miss West Virginia USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of West Virginia in the Miss USA pageant.

West Virginia has not been greatly successful at Miss USA and they have never produced a winner. After an eighteen year drought that ended in 2005, two West Virginian delegates placed within five years: Kristen Morrison in 2005 and Jessi Pierson in 2009.

One Miss West Virginia USA has held the Miss West Virginia Teen USA title and competed at Miss Teen USA, and two have competed at Miss America.
