Alabama’s Rising Stars
“Alabama’s Rising Stars” is a program of the Miss Alabama Competition through which candidates 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 Competition for activities that may include:
Lunch and rehearsal with the Miss Alabama candidate one day during competition 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)
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:
Statement of Understanding
Registration fee (made payable to the Miss Alabama Organization)
5 x 7 head shot (color or black and white)
When a candidate wins a local title, she must work through her local competition to recruit or appoint her Rising Star. The Miss Alabama Competition maintains a list of interested parties in case a candidate and local competition need a referral for a Rising Star. If you know someone who is interested in partnering as a Rising Star with a Miss Alabama candidate, or if you have any questions, please contact Melinda Gunter.
