Miss Future Secretary

From what I can gather, the 'Miss Future Secretary' contest was launched in 1954 by the National Secretaries Association. Though I don't believe it was a national contest. Local chapters of the NSA selected winners from high schools.

Miss Future Secretaries continued to be chosen for three decades, until the early 1980s, when being labeled a "future secretary" had come to sound more like an insult than a positive career aspiration.

Wikipedia notes that the National Secretaries Association changed its name in 1982 to Professional Secretaries International, and in 1998 changed it again to the International Association of Administrative Professionals.
