Alabama's Rising Stars

Alabama’s Rising Stars

“Alabama’s Rising Stars” is a program of the Miss Alabama Pageant through which contestants act as mentors for young ladies aged seven (7) to eleven (11).

The Rising Stars program is not a competition but rather a mentoring and learning process.

The activities for the Rising Stars are subject to change every year; participants come to the Miss Alabama Pageant for activities that may include:
  • Lunch and rehearsal with the Miss Alabama contestants one day during pageant week 
  • Participation on stage during one of the preliminary nights of competition 
  • Picture in the Miss Alabama program book 
  • Autographed photo of Miss Alabama 
  • Miss Alabama program book 
  • Crown jewelry (one piece) 
  • T-Shirt 
  • Certificate of participation
  • The Rising Stars of the top ten finalists may be featured at the annual Miss Alabama Fashion Show.
The following items are required for participation:
  • Application 
  • Statement of Understanding  
  • Registration fee (made payable to the Miss Alabama Pageant) 
  • 5 x 7 head shot (color or black and white) 
When a contestant wins a local title, she must work through her local pageant to recruit or appoint her Rising Star. The Miss Alabama Pageant maintains a list of interested parties in case a contestant and local pageant need a referral for a Rising Star. If you know someone who is interested in partnering as a Rising Star with a Miss Alabama contestant, or if you have any questions, please contact Melinda Gunter.
