Miss Rocket City Pageant Coming to North Alabama

Posted: Updated:

An American tradition is coming to North Alabama.  The Miss America Scholarship Program and the Miss Alabama Pageant recently announced the states newest franchise, The Miss Rocket City Pageant.  For years families have gathered around the television to watch 52 beautiful contestants from across the United States compete for the title of Miss America.  Those young women made it to that stage by competing in local preliminaries like you will now be able to watch live in north Alabama.

The Miss Rocket City Pageant, directed by Mickey Johnson and assistants, Colleen Gilhooly and Randy Murphy, will stage at Bob Jones High School on September 18, 2010.  Girls from across the state are making plans and preparing to visit the Rocket City to compete for the title of "Miss Rocket City 2010".

The local competition is exactly like that of Miss America.  The competition is divided into 5 phases: Interview for 25% of the total points, Talent counting for 35%, Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimsuit for 15%, Evening Wear for 20% and an On Stage Question for the remaining 5%.  The panel of 5 judges will come from 3 southeastern states.

The theme is "Reaching for the Star" which is inspired by the area's Space Industry.  The program, set and music will follow the space age and "star" theme.  The program will be an evening of entertainment for the entire family.

In 2003, Miss America expanded their organization to include teens between the ages of 13-17.  This competition is known as the Outstanding Teen Pageant.  Rocket City will also host an Outstanding Teen Pageant on September 18.  This is open to girls from across the state.

We didn't want to leave anyone out of the fun so the local pageant has added a Little Miss Rocket City Pageant for girls ages 1-12.  This pageant will be on Friday, September 17 at Bob Jones High School.

The Miss America Scholarship Program is the world's largest scholarship program for young women.  Scholarships are provided by businesses, universities and individuals like you from communities across the United States.  If you'd like to help by making a donation to this non-profit organization please contact the director.
