2016-2017 Miss Alabama Pageant Requirements and Forms
Each contestant must raise a minimum of $100 for the Children’s Miracle Network to compete in a Miss
local pageant.  If you compete in more than one local pageant, you must raise a minimum of $100
for each local
pageant you enter up to a total of $400.  Once you have raised a total of $400, you are not
required to raise more
money and can enter as many local pageants for which you qualify in the current
pageant year.  However, the
$400 is just a minimum; you may raise more money for CMN if you wish to do so.

To administer the CMN fund raising, each contestant must do the following:
1.      Create your personal web page on the CMN web site (see the CMN MAO Guide.pdf below for details).
2.      Raise the required funds for CMN.
3.      Print out proof of money raised to bring with you to the local pageant, or mail it in with your other
paperwork.  Your minimum CMN funds need to be posted to your CMN personal fund raising page before the
day of the pageant.  Checks should be made out to CMN (not the local pageant).  Please try to avoid bringing
check with you the day of the pageant.

To enter a Miss Alabama Local Pageant the following items are required:
1.      Contestant Resume
2.      Contestant Platform Essay
3.      Contract Acknowledgement (see link below)
4.      Local Contract (contact each local pageant for their local contract)
5.      Photo (contact each local pageant for their photo requirements)

have a Miss or Teen the Rising Star will randomly draw a contestant at the Little Miss Pageant on

Alabama Pageant will be paid by Miss Marshall County Organization. Teen and Miss Contestants: It
is very important if you have a Rising Star that you contact them and have them enter our event.
