States Griff O’Neil, founder and former Miss Universe executive:
"To support, connect and educate World Championships of Performing Arts Alumni while giving them a place to collaborate, develop and a platform to promote inventive activities and projects is the continuing mission of the International WORLDSTARS Association, headquartered in Hollywood, the entertainment capital of the World.

IWA membership is a requirement to represent a country in the esteemed annual WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF PERFORMING ARTS (WCOPA), which was launched in 1997. And now, over two decades later , aspiring performers and entertainers from all over the world contend for a coveted invitation to compete at this prestigious global event for “the gold” and over a quarter of a million  in scholarships. Networking with top entertainment industry representatives from Hollywood, Nashville and New York gives an attendee a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience with unmatched potential opportunities.

Now, as a result of unrelenting, repeated requests from performers, coaches, industry “movers and shakers”, schools, and performing arts devotees to have a worldwide federation, the team of professionals that successfully produces the annual WCOPA is inaugurating the much-anticipated INTERNATIONAL WORLDSTARS ASSOCIATION™ (IWA), the ONLY performing arts alumni association of its kind in the world.

World Championships of Performing Arts Alumni no longer need to say goodbye they can say “Meet me on IWA.TV.”
