I'm very new to the MAO and will be competing in the open pageant in WA soon. I wanted to know opinions of what I'm planning to do and if you think I will do well.

I do not have a bikini body. I am not much overweight, but I am average. I'm 150 lbs but I'm only 5'3. I do plan to wear a bikini if I can find one that hat isn't too revealing for my size.
I play the saxophone and clarinet. In past pageants, I have had enough time to play both, but since the talent section is 90 seconds, I can't do that. Which is more competitive? Does it matter what genre I play? Is being an instrumentalist unique?
Should I wait to spend money on a nice gown if I were to win the local? I have a very pretty dress that I've worn a few times but I'm not sure how competitive it is.
How should I prepare for interview?

Thank you so much everyone. I would love to get feedback so I can prepare.

Atlantic City, NJ (February 1, 2016) - The Miss America State Titleholders Association represents Miss America state titleholders who do not win Miss America, but use the quality scholarship assistance they've earned in the Miss America program to advance their careers and serve their communities. Ashlen is just one of many state titleholders who continue to inspire service and success while representing the values of the Miss America program.
"After getting a taste of research and teaching, I was wrestling with my desire to pursue a Ph.D. knowing that I was already staring down the debt of a master’s degree. I wished so badly to stifle that aspiration, as I could not see a feasible way to pay for it aside from taking on mounds of student loan debt. The moment that I knew I was the new Miss Arkansas was not only the second I realized that a life-long dream had come true, but it was also the instant when I realized God had created a way for all of my future dreams to come true. The buckling of my knees, the look of utter shock, the tears, they weren’t just about becoming Miss Arkansas; that reaction was also the manifestation of feeling the burden of financially supporting my dreams lifted in an instant. In the years since my time as Miss Arkansas I have finished my bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and will soon complete my doctorate debt-free, thanks to the sponsors and volunteers of Miss Arkansas and the Miss America Scholarship Organizations. My crown is collecting dust. My gowns don’t zip. My flute is enjoying retirement. My education makes my life better every day. That’s how often I think of the people who lovingly donate and volunteer their time: every day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating a way for dreams to come true for so many women like me through the life-long gift of education.”
– Ashlen Batson Thomason Miss Arkansas 2008

Subject: I have a friend who will be competing for the first time. She has a good (not great) voice. She is a lovely young lady who who puts offs a very natural 1970's vibe. I was thinking we could capitalize on that by singing a song from that era. Some of the songs I was considering are Through The Eyes Of Love, The Morning After, We May Never Love Like This Again. I was also even considering the song Different Worlds which some of you might remember as the theme from the sitcom Angie. Though a love song it actually has a really cool world peace feel. What do you think of going this route?

Does anyone remember the MAO ever making a rule that no audio/visual equipment could be used on-stage during a talent presentation? If so, is the rule still in effect and where could I find it in writing?

There is a local in my state that crown three titles. Two titles are local and the third is a city title that is 3.5 hours away. This seems silly to me and hard to explain to non pageant people.

Second, I wish it was possible for city/county titles to have a limited radius for eligibility and then add a second title that is regional for the girls who live out of the area. It is hard to support our local girl when she lives in another part of the State.

In addition, our State creates a sweeper pageant every time the wind changes direction. This allows anyone who wants to compete at state to do so, it seems so diluted these days.

There is a Miss America board game listed on ebay. Have never heard of this. Does anyone know anything about it, like what year it was made and sold. Looked thru my old programbooks and did not see any advertisments for it.
It appears to be from the 1970's? The game cards have illustrations of contectants in 1 piece swim suits, and most of the illustrated gowns look like full skirted ballbownd. The game looks well done artistically.
Thanks for any information.
