The Miss Connecticut Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Connecticut in the Miss Teen USA pageant.

The state pageant directors are:

  • Crown Productions from 2003 to 2008
  • Sanders & Associates, Inc., dba- Pageant Associates based in Buckhannon, West Virginia from 2009 to 2017
  • Five Crown Pageant Productions based in Washington, D.C. from 2018 to 2019
  • Ewald Productions from 2020

Connecticut has been one of the least successful states at Miss Teen USA. In 2002, Ashley Bickford's placement followed the 4th runner-up placement of Miss Connecticut USA Alita Dawson, who had previously been Miss Connecticut Teen-USA 1997. This was Connecticut's highest joint placement, and the highest joint placement of any state that year. Dawson was one of four Miss Connecticut Teen-USA titleholder to later win the Miss Connecticut-USA title.

The state has produced two Miss Teen USA winners: Logan West who was crowned Miss Teen USA 2012, and Kaliegh Garris who was crowned Miss Teen USA 2019.

Samantha Sarelli of Hartford was crowned Miss Connecticut Teen USA 2020 on November 30, 2019 at Stamford Marriott Hotel and Spa in Stamford. She represented Connecticut for the title of Miss Teen USA 2020 and placed in the Top 16.
