Hi, pageant friends!
I was wondering if someone could help me create a VoyUser Login by inviting me through my email. I think it's about time that I can edit my own post and have an official username, since I am always on here. Comment below if you can help!

Hey, pageant fans!
So I started creating collages for state pageants that I can start once I have finished all the national pageant elimination games. If you have a state you would like me to do (can be evening gown, swimsuit, or talent costume) please link me to the competition photos below! ALL contestants in the state competition must be represented, with the exception of only doing finalists, where ALL finalists must be represented as well. I do not want to leave titleholders out when doing this.
So, comment a link to photos of contestants as well as tell me which state it is and which category you would like to see! I already have the ENTIRE pageant for WA, but other than that I can't seem to find states. Let me know what you want to see!

How come the Maoteen website still hasn't been updated? The princess camp has the wrong dates and there is not dates yet as to when the State title holders are even checking in. Some of us want to book rooms and register for camp. I know that the campers don't have to be there as early as the titleholders competing but some of the girls wanted to take their stars to the parks for the day before they had to check in and do something fun with them.

Sometime ago someone here posted the name of a song that was playing in the background during contestant intros at Miss America one year during the 1980's--I think there was a NY reference in the title? Loved that music and was hoping to find it---anyone recall??
Thanks!

Subject: 6 FORMERS INTERVIEWED BY COSMOPOLITAN


Author:
No name
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 13:33:18 09/11/16 Sun

Goodness, they perhaps interviewed the most relevant formers and these gals got it just right.

Love the truth they all spoke and have to congratulate Mallory and Kate for not trying to present MAO as even close to running a perfect organization....MAO imperfect in most everyday, just as most of us.

I just wish MAO would be ready to change itself.......we all know the one person holding MAO back. Let's hope the organization survives his self absorption and comes back to place of truth and integrity sooner than later and perhaps let's Miss America be the person she went to Miss America to be, not the one he tried to make her be during her reign.

Here's the article: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/news/a63810/miss-america-pageant-winners-what-happens-next-interviews/

and here's Kate....

KATE SHINDLE, MISS AMERICA 1998

Now: Broadway actor and president of Actor's Equity; soon to star in "Fun Home"
national tour

The day after you crowned the new Miss America, what did you do?

I was ready to be done. I didn't have any regrets. I was excited for the next chapter. Four days after I crowned the next Miss America, I started my senior year of college.

I remember reading an interview with you where you described waiting tables in New York, and trying to break into acting. You said your manager didn't find out you had been Miss America for a few months. Did you find the title helped or hindered you in showbiz?

I would say it's a mixed bag. When you're 22 years old and you're showing up in New York as an actor, you're one of thousands. There have been times when it absolutely got me into more audition rooms than some of my friends, the fact that it was a sort-of novelty thing that people would take interest in. But I had to take it from there.

When I was just starting out, I got the chance to star in the national tour of Cabaret during a period when the show was traveling to smaller markets — one-week stays in places like Des Moines and Indianapolis and Fort Worth. I don't think I would have gotten to be in that position if I didn't have something that they could sell [in those regions]. But I still worked my butt off and had to fly to London to audition for Sam Mendes. They had to be sure I was up to the task. Anyone that tells you you're going to get hired just because you were Miss America probably isn't aiming that high.

Even 19 years later, does having been Miss America play a part in your life?

It continues to be a force in my life but it's not a major factor day-to-day. When the Fun Home tour news was announced, the Associated Press tweeted the story and said something like, 'Fun Home tour boasts Broadway veterans and an ex-Miss America.' I tweeted the writer back like, 'I've actually done some theater too. I haven't been sitting around polishing my crown for 19 years.' Even though I've stayed marginally involved through the years, it's not the thing that I think of when I brush my teeth in the morning and look in the mirror. It's not 'Good morning, Miss America!' you know?! [Laughs] I'm an actor.

At the end of your book, Being Miss America: Behind the Rhinestone Curtain, you talk about changes you think need to happen in the Miss America Organization. Do you still think there are things to improve?

There is a mentality within the Miss America organization at a high level that, if you question anything or the way things are being done, you're a hater. For an institution that is supposed to be about teaching young women to be leaders — within the context of a very quirky and anachronistic competition, sure, but it does achieve that — to alienate people instead of encouraging the exchange of free thought and idea and passions is so ironic to me.

IN THE TELECAST, THEY'RE TELLING US THESE ARE THE MOST FASCINATING, TALENTED, INTELLIGENT, ACCOMPLISHED WOMEN WE COULD FIND, AND THEN THEY PUT UP THESE STUPID FACTOIDS ON THE SCREEN THAT MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE IDIOTS.
When I last looked at [the Miss America Organization's] tax returns, the CEO was taking in more in compensation than the organization was giving out in cash scholarships. The pageant is operating at a loss every year. Until they get some of those business practices under control, they're always going to be scrambling for gimmicks and ratings. In the telecast, they're telling us these are the most fascinating, talented, intelligent, accomplished women we could find, and then they put up these stupid factoids on the screen that make them look like idiots. You have a woman playing a concerto and then you have a bubble pop up in the corner of the screen that says, 'She was once chased by a cheetah.' It's not good messaging. And I think Miss America is better than that.

The West Virginia Organization would not honor the scholarship Emily won. The organization was taken to court and lost. Leah Summers and the board was found to be wrong. The organization was on probation, running in the red, obtaining loans, not following mission statement, not following protocol, low scholarship, bad financial records..... much more! Visit Emily's website to see documentation soon to be uploaded.

Subject: Question for you trivia buffs...who has won State on their first try? How about the last year of eligibility after 5-6 times at state? Just curious as to what it takes and if the average Miss State has had a year or two or three in some cases under her belt before winning.

Subject: Does anyone know what the rules are about other pageant systems? I know they dont want contestants being involved with other systems but what about volunteers? I thought I read here that volunteers/board members/judges couldn't be associated with other pageants?
