Becoming A Contestant
The Miss Alabama's Outstanding Teen Pageant invites interested young women to consider becoming a contestant.  Contestants may enter at-large or by winning a local preliminary pageant that sends their  winner to the state pageant.  Participating in a local preliminary pageant is an effective way to gain experience, hone your talents and skills, and compete in the state pageant free of charge.

The contestant must be a resident or student in the State of Alabama for at least six months prior to the first local or state competition. 

Participation in the Miss Alabama's Outstanding Teen program provides a unique opportunity for young ladies to gain both the life skills and 
college tuition scholarship assistance.
