I'm looking for old pageant program books, but mainly looking for old American Coed Pageant program books from the 80s and 90s.
It may be a long shot but I thought I'd try here because maybe some of the people here used to do that pageant back in the day? I remember Nanciann did Coed around the same time as me, which made me think maybe some others did too?
If you are willing to sell your old program books, I am looking to collect them. If you want to sell them either respond here or you can email me if you want. Thanks.

Just read on Guru that the Local CMN fee is going to be raised to $250 this year? And State fee $500.

So every local contestant will be raising $100 for the MAO (verses $40 prior)

And every state contestant will be raising $200 for the MAO -still 40%? (v. $100 prior).

I think local numbers will plummet if CMN is $250.

Sam Haskell spoke at Finals on Saturday where he shared his life story, how he saved Miss America, and presented his "good friend" Steven Oliveri a plaque for the Miss Ohio 70th anniversary.

I was zoning out until in the middle of his speech when he slowed down and pointedly said, "I may not be the most popular CEO..." and then he paused, and turned very dark "...but I DAMN WELL WILL BE RESPECTED."

I was shocked. It was a WTF moment; like, did I just hear that? Where did THAT come from? Why is he saying this?!?

Here's the CEO of Miss America, the 'other' face of Miss America, who plays the Southern Gentleman, swearing in front of an entire audience. And the awkwardness of the moment. He then went back to all light and lovely, praising the Ohio program and said it was one of the best run states.

Did anyone else catch this? What did you think? Why would he feel the need to say this? Or is this how a Hollywood agent would act?

Subject: Final night scoring explained


Author:

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 16:16:56 06/17/17 Sat

On Friday the judges hold a meeting where they are told the Top 9. They give each a composite score worth 25% based on the question:

“On a scale of 6 to 10, what is the contestant’s ability to be the beautiful, talented, intelligent and well-spoken role model this state needs to perform this job?”

High and low are dropped, so girls come into Finals with a score between 45 and 75 points.

All scoring Finals night is between 6 and 10 points with high and low scores dropped (so only three scores are counted).
10% fitness
30% talent* **
15% evening gown
20% onstage question

*On finals night only, judges factor into their talent score “Who's the best girl for the job”. A girl who can warble through the National Anthem only ok, but has shown amazing stage presence all night can be awarded more points than her onstage performance would merit, whereas a talent winner who doesn’t have the face or spark of a titleholder and can get less points factoring in "best girl for the job".

**Finals night judging of 6-10 helps girls with ok talents in the most weighted competition. Let's say a girl is fantastic in everything except talent and managed to make Top 10 and get good composites. During preliminaries, she might have gotten 5s in talent, but during Finals, she can only get a 6 at the least. That could automatically boost her score 9 points (one point from each judged weighed 30%).

It also helps girls who aren't the best in ss. SS is only worth 10% and she can't get less than a 6. Same with eg being reduced to 15%.

Final Question has replaced Final Ballot. This is where judges can help their favorites win given it's worth 20%.

So if you're wonder how a girl with a 5 talent, or 4 ss, or gives an awkward Final answer can win, consider the above.

One of the biggest flaws with this current group is the lack of marketing. Social media is free publicity, and it's very poorly managed.

The parade was today. No photos were posted, no Facebook Live videos were done, nothing. It's like it didn't even happen yet.

If we're going to get people to care about Miss Ohio, it starts with promotion and building our brand. That means someone needs to be responsible for it - not the current winner, either.

Jessica: Looks great; speaks great; good content but I get the vibe that she was put out to do this. She's in a car wearing a MAC apron which makes me wonder if MO called and said they needed her video RIGHT THEN. She's missing the "approachability/girl next door" factor. Lose the apron, step outside the car, smile, and voila!
Rachel: Needs a retake-- helicopter, road noise, and the dreaded brick wall back drop. Delivery was good; content OK. Not a fan of trying to fit in some other aspect (platform, major, studies abroad) in a video where you only have about 20 seconds to share your favorite thing about Ohio, but this worked.
Oh, but her hands! She's magically lifting up something throughout her speaking lol which got distracting. But Rachel has something priceless that makes any beginner mistakes forgivable and that is an aura of being real, kind, and the lovely young woman Ohio would want to represent them.
This is for everyone: When it comes to styling, every "appearance" a girl makes including videos or any event where they will be photographed, she needs to LOOK LIKE MISS OHIO. If Rachel's going to wear her hair natural in competition, great. If not, she needs to present herself as she would competing, as that's how the judges will envision her making appearances.
This includes making sure your clothes are looking their best. Get to your local thrift store and pick up a clothes steamer. It would knock out those wrinkles in that top in 30 seconds and works great on gowns!! It is a MUST to have for MO.
Also, nearly every girl needs a stronger lip color (especially in outside lighting!) You can see they have makeup on, but without a defined lip, they look drained. Go see Jessica at MAC and get the perfect color!
Kelly: Great job- great content, great speaking, but I can't see your pretty face in the shadows! And I want to know your horse's name! I'll forgive the background announcer because it's part of what you're doing. Another first time contestant I'll be excited to watch.
Gabby: Excellent, strong speaker! First one I could really hear outside. Good content. Believable. Looks the part of a Miss Ohio. Could have gone for some movement, but none is better than anything distracting. Good ending. Her confidence and delivery shows she's a senior contestant.
Hanna: Who are you? What's your title? What's your favorite thing about Ohio? What are you competing for? Do you have a crown? Where are you? What's that mark on the ground mean? And how in the world can you hear a train from west of Olentangy all the way to the Oval? So Hanna missed the assignment but looks good doing it. But another video where I couldn't see her face. Good voice and projection but content needed much more thought.
Sarah C: Who are you? What's your title? (OK, I can see a sash). Sarah looks great (and I can see her lips despite being a long shot, lol!) Her background was excellent, she has a very lovely voice, and she obviously worked on her content, but either memorize what your are going to say, or write up cue cards to avoid being choppy. As much as I've complained about name dropping other achievements, here a quick mention of her career would explain why architecture, of all things, is what she loves most about Ohio.
The trash blowing in the shot at the end would be a good excuse to reshoot and not come off so stilted. But I think she's another contestant where no one will care what she says, because she is sooooo pretty saying it.

Wowza. Not impressed with the videos.
Bry: MIA.
Paige: I find wearing a Sunday dress with a crown and sash on a boat kind of weird. Can't really brag about Ohio's snow skiing, IMO. OK delivery (competing with the wind to be heard) and ended oddly. Next time dress the part and write a script. Lovely location. Lovely girl. Want to see her face better.
Stephanie Y: Shot too far away. Needs a microphone. Hard to hear. Forgot the Bluejackets and any Cinci teams. Hard to listen to. Work on tone of voice & script. Needs styling. No pageant foot poses or hands on hips in sandles and jeans. No. Just no. Seems like a genuine girl. In shape and pretty.
Abbey: Love her positive nature. Seems comfortable in her skin but that may just be 18 and ready for the world, lol. Looks the part. She's the definition of relatable. Shared who she and her family was. You got to know something about her.
Hannah: Hard to hear over water, spoke too fast = straining to hear and understand her. Can't see her face at all. Shot too far away. Good content. I get she's outdoors but a Miss State needs to be styled above the average girl's tshirt and baggy athletic shorts. Genuine. The viewer gets to know her.
Stephanie S: Hair looks damaged. Cut 4" off and it will look loads better. Spoke too slowly. Looks like it was shot in front of an apartment. A little cliche. Other than the hair, look and styling on. Very facially pretty girl.
Caroline: I find her favorite thing, her FAVORITE, beating everything else out, is very odd. Trying too hard to edge in platform. Pretty. Just seems very Patty but can't be as this is her first time. More like she's chasing a cliche- big matchy- match earrings, ruffled one shoulder top, world peace. Didn't close the deal. Ask them to come to Mansfield. She strikes me as the kind who will figure it all out this time and come ready to kill next time.
Amelia: dialed it in. Unironed t-shirt, in front of her bedroom door, with no lipstick. Was too obvious working in she studied abroad. Vapid answer.
Autumn: Lovely backdrop. Horrid sun exposure. Looks and sounds very young. Needs make up and hair styling. Basic delivery. Hands were weird. Decent content but another weird work in of a platform, which made ending awkward.
Karolina breaks all the rules: Miss Miami Valley- in Cleveland; noisy street: odd and awkward cameo; and those cornea burning earrings, lol, but nobody cares because she's so fun and pretty while she's doing it. Has a newscaster feel. Noticed she talks about people reacting to her, not how she reaches out to people. When she touched her heart when she said "touched my heart", I wanted to scream. No. She's going to win this pageant unless my dark horse steals the show.
Sarah K. Lovely girl. Lovely voice. Comes off genuine and sincere. Looks like she's going to break into song at any moment, lol. Seems SO positive (in attitude). Awkward ending. Distracting back drop.
Madeline. The bomb. Loved it. The eye movements were a little much. She really says nothing unique about Ohio but does it so pleasantly you don't really notice. Looks great, styled perfectly, great background, great camara work, nice touch on graphics.

THIS IS GENUINE. NO SCAM. Hi! My name is Myriam Boyer. I want to tell my testimony to the whole world how this great and powerful man called great baba helped me to bring back my partner. My man left me for another lady for five years. I almost gave up until my friend advised me and introduced me to this great man whom she met on the internet. I never believed at first but she encouraged me and i tried to believe and contacted him on his email. I told and explained everything to him and he assured me that he will help me and that i should not worry too much. I believed him and i did all that he asked me to do which i did and it work perfectly and my husband came back to me begging for forgiveness. I am so happy and excited now. I discovered that when my husband came back he even loved me more than the way he used to love me before he left me. great baba opened up his eyes to see how much i love him and how much love we ought to share together as one. This is not brain washing contact great baba now on his email: Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com

What are some real things that this board has failed at doing? Not rumors, not conjecture - real issues.

For instance, they were supposed to grow the program. Numbers keep dropping.

At least one contestant (NW Ohio) shouldn't even be competing at Miss Ohio, since not everyone at that local paid their full CMN fee and they didn't have enough eligible contestants to hold the local.

What else?

May 16, 2017 03:57 PM

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Stephanie Chavez has sashes from being crowned as Miss Albuquerque in 2011, Miss Dona Ana in 2012, Miss Albuquerque in 2013, Miss Ruidoso in 2014, Miss Rio Rancho in 2015 and Miss Albuquerque in 2016. She's also the reigning Miss New Mexico.

After she walked across the Miss America stage in summer 2016 to represent the Land of Enchantment, she didn’t expect she’d be fighting for her college scholarship harder than fighting for her crown. She claims she was awarded scholarship money for her pageant years from 2011 to 2015, but money for 2016 is missing.

The nationally known pageant requires contestants to participate in community service, showcase a talent, and model in an evening gown and in swimwear.

Attorney general investigating Miss NM Scholarship Organization
"I put my all into preparing for Miss America,” Chavez said. “This was my lifelong dream and it finally came true."

Chavez said she won $6,500 from Miss New Mexico and another $3,000 from Miss America in 2016. She claims she’s not the only pageant contestant who hasn’t been paid.

"There are girls wanting their money and aren't getting it,” Chavez said.

Miss NM Scholarship Organization Director Greg Smith said Chavez submitted incomplete paperwork and said in a written statement, “She was asked to resubmit the correct documentation, and has not submitted that specified paperwork to this date."

Smith emailed KOB-TV the following statement:

The Miss New Mexico Scholarship Organization is committed to providing young women across the State of New Mexico with scholarship opportunities to assist them in achieving their academic goals. As a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to empowering women, scholarship money is awarded to young women who have represented the organization while in good standing and who have followed their official and notarized contracts. Stephanie Chavez has violated her signed contract multiple times since July 2016, has been notified of each infraction, has openly and repeatedly denied meeting with the organization’s leadership to rectify her situation, and has made unauthorized appearances under “suspension” while wearing the official organization crown and sash. Stephanie applied for her scholarship money and was denied the funds because she didn't submit the proper documentation. She was asked to resubmit the correct documentation, and has not submitted that specified paperwork to this date. Upon submission of the proper paperwork, she will be granted her scholarship if she qualifies. That documentation is required by both the Miss New Mexico Scholarship Organization and the Miss America Organization to ensure that the scholarship funds are being used to pay bona fide educational expenses.

Chavez said she took her complaints to the attorney general in October 2016 and has met with the office a handful of times since.

An attorney general spokesperson confirms the office is actively investigating Chavez’s complaints. It is not clear when the state will complete its investigation into the nonprofit.

"It's hard because you put so much time and effort into winning this goal and this dream of mine,” Chavez said. "Hopefully get to the bottom of all of this."

According to the IRS, the last non-profit that filed its tax-exempt status with the federal agency was the “Miss New Mexico Scholarship Pageant.” The 501(c)(4) has a Hobbs mailing address and its IRS non-profit status was revoked on May 15, 2010.

Smith said the “Miss New Mexico Scholarship Organization” has filed for tax-exempt status with the IRS, but as of Monday night, its tax exempt number is not in the IRS’ online database.

New Mexico secretary of state filings reveal that the “Miss NM Scholarship Organization” is not in good standing with the state. There are also filings for “Miss New Mexico Beauty Pageant, Inc.” and “Miss New Mexico Pageant Association, Inc.” but their statuses have been revoked for unknown reasons as of Monday night.

A friend just told me that Minnesota's Miss North Star, Brianna Drevlow, is a graduate student of musical composition at Bowling Green State University. She was the first runner-up at Miss Minnesota last year and seems to be the overwhelming favorite this year. Has anyone met her? We may have a second contestant to root for at Miss America this year.

Subject: An Overview of our proposed Miss Ohio Program


Author:
Jana Thomas
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 15:16:03 04/23/17 Sun

I was part of a group that bid on the license. Here's an overview of our pageant itinerary and the make up of our board.

We moved the pageant to Columbus, holding it at Mees Theater on Capital University's campus (amazing acoustics, a Marley floor, and a massive dressing room), and housing the girls in the dorms there. Bexley is a very safe, affluent, clean town 10 minutes from downtown, 15 to the Short North, 15 to Easton.

We proposed a 4 day pageant. Wednesday- Saturday.

Girls checked in Wednesday afternoon so they didn't have to get up at an ungodly hour, or incur the expense of a hotel the night prior. All meals would be clean- the kind of food you need to eat competition week, not pizza, etc., and girls had 24/7 access to a full gym.

Miss Ohio week started Wednesday evening with the Miss Ohio Gala. A black tie arrival party with cocktails and hors o'doeuvres, including Red Carpet introductions and photos of all the contestants, with dancing afterwards. We wanted an exciting night where we had a chance to treat the girls like royalty and for everyone to enjoy themselves prior to competition.

Thursday morning half the girls interviewed, while the other half had rehearsals. This switched in the afternoon, then Thursday evening was Prelim1.

Friday morning the girls would visit the country's largest children's hospital- Nationwide Children's, to visit the children and promote CMN. Afternoon had rehearsals, early evening was dinner with family, and Friday evening was Prelim2.

Saturday started with a finals night rehearsal, followed by Platform Day at the state house. It began with a luncheon and tour of the State House with the First Lady. Then contestants would have displays highlighting their platform work, and an opportunity to engage with the public and media about their platform.

All events- The Gala, CMN visit, Platform Day, Prelims, and Finals would be covered by the media. Videos of the competition would be available, and if possible, we would web cast the pageant as well.

Saturday afternoon girls packed and moved out of the dorms, and just chilled. After finals, there was a family Crowning Celebration Party and Breakfast in the student center, which has pool tables, etc, for kids upstairs.

The Teen program was 2 days- arrive Friday, crown Saturday, held prior to Miss Ohio. Year 2, the princess program and Teens would be be incorporated with the Miss pageant, but the idea was to have the least expense for their families.

Year 1 scholarships matched previous years, with a 5 year plan to increase dollar amounts, sponsors, and locals. We provided free professional head shots at Forum (contestant picked her shots), including a boot camp to orient new contestants to the program. Miss Ohio would be fully supported both in preparing for Miss America and marketing her for paid appearances.

No chaperones, no host homes, no junk food, no gift baskets, no celebrity waiting, no $75 photos, no days and days of rehearsals, no home town judges, no 'staff selected' awards.

Other than the Financial Officer, a CPA which had no connection to the MAO for transparency purposes, all of us had competed, including a former Miss Ohio. All have degrees, most graduate degrees, and ranged in age from 27-50. Half had run locals; the other half coached. We all have been successful in our careers.

THIS is a proper style hat for the parade:



Pretty, feminine, delicate. Remember though that people need to see your face.

This is a beach hat:



Do NOT wear a beach hat with a few cheap flowers thrown on.

And don't be the girl who thinks she's gonna be the one to not wear a hat to be "different". There's one every year. It's bad form. Get a proper hat (or fascinator).

Here's there form 990. It gives no real information - a complete lack of transparency for a corporation in the public trust. There are no details as to who received grants, or what expenses were paid.

http://990s.foundationcenter.org/990_pdf_archive/473/473330815/473330815_201512_990.pdf

Most interesting is the fact that the board did not approve this before it was filed with the IRS. They just blindly trust in Steven, and allow him to do as he pleases.

Is there something wrong with MAFK or did some EDs/ the Miss Ohio Board not collect the $200 CMN for sweeps?

Madaline Lamberg raised $30 of $400. Competed in NW, GC/NO, and sweeps.
Alexandra Bernowski raised $0 of $300. Competed in OX and sweeps.
Lexi White- raised $400 is short $100. Competed in A-C, GC/NO, OX, and sweeps.

If these girls have not even paid for their locals, they were ineligible to compete in sweeps.

Who on the Miss Ohio Board is responsible for ensuring girls pay their local CMN fees?

Subject: 2017 Miss Ohio Local Preliminary Season in Review


Author:
steve44070
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 00:13:18 03/30/17 Thu

Here is my 2017 Miss Ohio local preliminary season in review:

As you may all know by now, I have been going to & taking pictures of local Miss Ohio preliminaries during the 2016-17 pageant season. I have been to 6 local preliminaries (7 if you count Sweeps). -1 from last year. Without further a do, breaking it down pageant by pageant.

I started off my 4th season by going to Miss North Coast. There were only 6 contestants & 5 teens competing (yet I would say it was strong contestant wise). Thank you to Stephanie Yasechko for putting me in her farewell video & Danielle Vivcharenko for giving me an oral shoutout. After the pageant, no new contestants were met however but I did reconnect w/ a forever Miss Ohio 2010 in Becky Minger, forever Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen 2015- Emily Krejci, reigning Miss Ohio- Alice Magoto, Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen 2016 - Madison Heichel, & a former Miss Ohio contestant in Kim Baker Kanary & we all went to Panini's afterwards for dinner. All in all, a great way to kickoff the 2017 local season.

Miss Clayland was another well put production despite only 7 (yet strong) contestants competing. Thank you to Karolina Ulasevich for giving me an oral shoutout & also to Cie Grant & Jenna DePizzo for their performances! Afterwards, once again, no new contestants were met as everyone was a returnee plus a previous teen contestant competed in Miss for the 1st time. I did reconnect w/ Jenna however. My pictures were in so-so quality at best because of poor lighting. All in all, an awesome show nonetheless!!!

Miss Akron-Canton was another well put production w/ a mixture of new & experienced contestants. Unfortunately due to an exclusive contract w/ Sylvart Studios, I wasn't able to take pictures for the event but I did intermission & postgame in it's place. I would say one the biggest highlights of the season was a VERY heartfelt oral shoutout to yours truly by Michelle Denny in her farewell speech which received a round of applause. After the pageant, I got to meet 4 new contestants. Also, I got to reconnect w/ forever Miss Ohio 2006 & Polaris classmate- Melanie Murphy Miller, forever Miss Ohio 2013- Heather Nicole Barrett, Miss Youngstown (unrelated to Miss America)- Elena Yemma, & I got the meet the reigning Miss Captivating in Taylor Gleespen. After the show, we all went to Applebee's to eat & to watch the Buckeyes win in overtime against Wisconsin. I also want to give a very special shoutout to Gabby Bailey & Hannah Zimmerman for being by my side when I said my farewell to Michelle. Nevertheless, my BEST socialization efforts of the season!

Miss Maple City also had a mix of new & experienced contestants. As usual, it was not the best place to take pictures (poor stage lighting). Thank you to Gabby Bailey for the oral shoutout in her farewell speech. After the pageant, i've met 6 new contestants plus I got to reconnect w/ now Miss Arnold Teen Fitness 2017 in Lauren Beard, my friend Gabi, & forever Miss Ohio 2015 in Sarah Parkinson Hider & I also got to meet a forever Miss Maple City 2012 in Amber Rush. Once again, great pageant, but poor lighting for photos.

Miss Northwestern Ohio only had 4 miss contestants & 3 teens as Miss Ohio USA was on the same weekend. It was another well put production. Thank you to Hayley Hesselschwardt for putting me & also giving me a shoutout in her farewell video! Afterwards, I got to meet 2 new contestants plus I got to reconnect w/ Miss Ohio 1991 in Renee Autherson Brown (her daughter, Grace Brown was crowned Miss NWO's OT on her 1st attempt competing in a Miss Ohio's OT local) & I also got to meet a forever Miss Ohio 1998 in Kelly Creager Meyer. The auditorium's lighting was once again optimal for picture taking.

Miss Greater Cleveland/Miss Northern Ohio was a rare matinee as it was held on a Saturday afternoon. Like the last 2 years, I was on my own that day yet I had many people to keep me company that day. The highlight of the day was when I was asked by one of the teen contestants to escort her up on stage! And thank you to Veronica Garey for putting me in her farewell video & giving me a shoutout in her speech!!! Afterwards, I met 4 new contestants (2 at an earlier date) plus I got to reconnect w/ forever Miss Ohio 1999 in Tiffany Baumann Cantelupe. I won an Ohio Lottery gift basket of $25 worth of $1 instant tickets via a raffle (I was backstage when I retrieved it)! Won $17 on those tickets. Once again, a great time & one of the best socialization efforts this season.

Miss Ohio Sweeps I & II: For sweeps I, I took the majority of my pics & I did some play by play on Twitter & let me tell you, it's difficult to tweet & take pictures at the same time. Sweeps II: Outside of Sarah's performance, Madison's performance, Alice's performance & crowning, my camera was pretty much silent. Once again, I did play by play via Twitter. I've got to meet 2 new contestants between both sessions & I got to reconnect w/ several people including forever Miss Ohio 2007 in Roberta Albert. My friends Hilary Powers, Jana Thomas, & former Miss Ohio contestant & now mentor- Allison Vance. All in all, an excellent way to end the preliminary season nonetheless!!!

Here is my closing summary:

Over the past 7 months, out of the 19 who are going to Miss Ohio, 8 of whom are new to the Miss Ohio stage & I took pictures w/ 15 of the contestants & I know 17 of them personally & i'm looking forward to meeting the remaining 2 in CarolineGrace Elizabeth (Oxford) & Kelly O'Bryan (Talawanda) in the near future. Shoutouts were the name of the game this season as I was mentioned and/or featured in each titleholders farewell speech and/or video at the 1st 6 pageants i've been to this season & you don't know how much that means to me! Between these past 4 seasons, my confidence & my communication skills has improved even more w/ each & every pageant & yes, it's always a work in progress w/ me having Autism. I may have said this the past 3 years, but for people who has yet to get to know me. That's where photography & getting autographs come into play, it's my form of communication. That's what makes me different from the rest of the crowd & that's the way that God created me & i'm glad to say that I do have a differability & run off on a different operating system. I may not be able to say everything that I would like to say w/ words, but I can definitely can say it w/ writing & I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it. Again, thank you so much for letting me be a part of all of your lives. I love each & every one of you!!!

Miss Ohio #4, here we come!!!

Love you all,

Steve

The fact that years after she’s done competing Jessica Nelson posts that pageants have caused her eating disorders issues ought to be a real wake up call to potential constesntas and their parents. Again this is anetodal evidence that pagenats are harmful. Before thinking this is a fun way to spend thousands of dollars we would warn others that there ar tremendous life long consequences. There are healthy ways to spend your extra money.

Miss Ohio holds sweeps for one reason: to make money (but not for scholarships).

They are counting on new contestants’ excitement so you will buy lots of $500 ad pages and bring lots of people to the pageant at $150 a piece. So your parents will buy luncheon tickets, style show tickets, Coronation Party tickets (which are $25 and can only be purchased prior to Miss Ohio), support the celebrity waiter event, and stay in their recommended hotel for 4-9 nights (~$200/night) so the Holiday Inn gives them their rooms for free. Ticket costs for your parents alone will be at least $500.

They hold a “People’s Choice” contest encouraging girls to raise money via $1 votes for a chance to compete on Finals night. You also have to provide an elaborate gift basket for the silent auction. And of course there’s the $250 CMN fee (btw Miss Ohio gets 20% of all CMN money you raise; Miss America gets 40%.)

There are lots of other costs associated with competing- a ’state level’ gown ($1,000-$5,000), swim suit ($100-$700), an interview dress, plus a talent gown or costume ($500- $1,000s), a dress and fancy hat for the parade, shoes and jewelry for all these, as well as wardrobe for other events. Then you have hair coloring, hair extensions, tanning, etc.

Other costs include pageant photography (No picture taking is allowed and they’re not cheap), $20 program books, a gift for your host home, a gift for your hostess, gifts for the other contestants, and you have to supply your own convertible for the parade.

If you want to experience Miss Ohio, great. But be clear what you’re getting you and your parents into— many, many thousands of dollars in expenses.

Jessica V. paid her $100.00 donation to CMN, then registered for Tallawanda; therefore, it is showing not paid but it really has been paid. Had she registered first for Tallawanda, then paid it, it would have showed paid! Check her last donation date. It was paid the morning of 3/11/17.

Subject: Now that we have had a few years to pull information together, there is a trend happening in Ohio. Periodically people will post on here and say contestant numbers are lower, less loclals etc. Here are some findings and the data is near accurate plus or minus a few numbers in either directions. In 2015 68 contestants competed at least once. In 2016 58 contestants competed at least once. In 2017 it's estimated with Oxford this weekend that we will have about 45 contestants that competed in at least one local. Depending on the number of crowns given at sweeps this will Year will go down as one of the lowest number of state contestants in the programs history. If anything less than 6 crowns awarded at sweeps we will be in the teens. What is it going to take for Miss America to do something about this??

My Lord - when are some of these girls going to give up? It's the same old names - same old talents - I think I could do the magic trick, play the sax waaay better, can tap better and some of the singing???PLEASE.
OHIO is not the place to compete - they can't afford to send real talent to Miss America - just a half way decent looking girl - there hasn't been anyone since the Bart girl and she had a gimmick that they couldn't pass up.

Ohio is down to just ten titles:
Lake Festival
North Coast
Miami Valley
Montgomery County
Clayland
Akron Canton
Maple City
Northwestern
Shawnee
Portsmouth

And then there will be sweeps - 5 titles, if we're lucky.

That means that there will be just fifteen contestants at Miss Ohio this year.

How is this group still in charge? I hope they're one of the groups that Miss America fires. I read on the Guru board that they're putting some states up for grabs. Please let Ohio be one of them.

Chiffon, satin, taffeta, raw silk or jersey

If anyone from the MOBOD reads this, we'd love to see some pics of Alice receiving recognition for her prelim award at MA. It's something to be proud of and would be attractive to young women considering competing. The pics of the teen are nice but Its time for Alice to get some recognition for Her achievement at the national level and gives young girl and young women an opportunity to see how far they could go. Just a suggestion. Thanks!

Media tour? Sponsor visits? Platform??? Yet another example of our sunk program.

We had a very strange Top 15 at MA with many surprises-- Idaho, Mass, Iowa, and many unpredicted absences- DC, MI, and our own Miss OH.

Miss America made it clear they do not like girls using coaches, to where they changed the contract banning them. Only upon specific approval of the state Director could a girl use a coach, but many in the pageant community questioned if it was wise given Miss America was so adamantly against them.

Becky Minger made it know that she coached Alice. Do you think Miss America may have silently black balled the girls who were known to use coaches?

Everyone seems unhappy. But what are the real problems, and how do we fix them? We can't just tell MAO that we don't like these people so get rid of them.

What are specific concerns that you have, and how would you change things to make them better?

For instance, the ten-day stay in Mansfield with two preliminary nights in the theater is just so expensive for families. I'd propose only having one preliminary night, and making it a long weekend. It would be even better to move the pageant to a location that's got a lower crime rate and more things for families to do (Cleveland? Akron? Columbus area? Even Toledo or Dayton would be okay).

Your turn.

It was nice to meet you today and the women helping the contestants in the pageant were wonderful. They were patient, attentive to the children and extremely helpful in assisting with changing my girls clothes. You are very lucky to have such a great group of volunteers. I thought my daughters were fabulous today. I am curious as to what you ask the judges to look for when judging this pageant. When I registered my daughters I asked many questions about what you were looking for in a contestant and what type of girls were best suited. My daughters hold many state and national titles and are highly trained by Rhonda Shappert and Amanda Beagle, who actually suggested I write this letter to you for some feedback. My daughters, though none of them won today, were WAY advanced for this pageant both in their attire, speaking and modeling skills. The proof was on the stage. My youngest daughter Bella was the only contestant in her age group who came all the way down in front of the judges and never stopped smiling. Even the little girl who won never smiled, looked at the judges or walked down in front of them. My middle daughter was outstanding today and she was the only girl the announcer even commented on in terms of her appearance and performance during the pageant. I also want to note that she was the only girl asked a question NOT on your list and while it was not an open ended question, she managed to expand on it without being asked. The little girl who won answered with one or two words with her back to the judges. Madison was also a stand out today. The girl who won her age division also did a nice job, but she did not listen to her question. When asked who she would like to spend the day with and why, she chose to answer who she wished she was. If that happened tonight at The Miss Mansfield Pageant, there is no way that would win. A very dear friend of mine is judging tonight...she would agree that should not have won.
I chose to do this pageant so that family who live in Mansfield that never get to see them perform could do so today. Another good friend of mine who is a pageant coach put her daughter in this pageant last year and she warned me that you are not looking for an experienced pageant girl, and I probably should have listened. I was hoping my daughters would just have fun today for the joy of performing but sadly it made the two older girls question fairness, consistancy in rules and they were embarrassed by being beaten by girls who were not at the same caliber. When mothers of girls you are competing against tell you your daughters have this in the bag and are asking for the numbers of your coaches...you know your children gave a solid performance. I would suggest promoting this for entry level girls or leveling the pageant for fairness. I cannot promote this pageant to our experienced pageant sisters as I would not want them to feel the way we did today. Good luck to you in the future,

Heichel Family

Veronica Wende has been announced as Ohio's representative at the National Sweetheart Pageant in Hoopston, Illinois on Labor Day weekend. Kat Howland has been selected as New Hampshire's representative. As you may know, the Miss America Organization has prohibited its active titleholders from participating in the Sweetheart Pageant, so women who enter it will no longer be eligible to participate in the Miss America program. Congratulations to Veronica and Kat for choosing to compete on Labor Day weekend.

This girl needs to be in therapy - she just can't move on. It took how many times for her to even get a local title 2 years ago, last year she won with only 3 other contestants, she hadn't even placed in top 10 until last year - when is she going to realize it's time to grow up and get a life?

The first openly gay Miss America contestant, Miss Missouri, is being covered in the media internationally:

on Good Morning America:

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/miss-missouri-erin-oflaherty-excited-openly-gay-miss/story?id=40100052

She's also been covered by:

ABC News
Huffington Post
People Magazine
Entertainment Tonight
New York Daily News
Slate
US Weekly
Daily Mail (UK)
Cosmopolitan
Perez Hilton
Hollywood Life
and 100+ other news outlets.

This could have been Ohio 2 years ago if not for that horribly small-minded, small town judges chair who purposely picked 4/5 in-state novice judges, including a junk yard owner, to steer the results.*

Quote: "Ohio is not ready for a black Miss Ohio, and Miss America is not ready for a gay contestant."

*and this in no way denies Mackenzie as a good Miss Ohio and MA contestant.
