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 Eve Gray at evegray@centurytel.net.
