Where do/did you practice your talent (I'm a singer)? I recently transferred to a bigger school farther away from home so I've lost my main practice space. Do you think the music school would lend out practice rooms to non-music majors?

I am helping a friend's daughter in first pageant - she's a junior in HS and is fuller figured. Has more of an apple shape and fuller breasts. What is a style for interview for her? Guessing she is about a size 8-10 Any great sites I could refer her to for good suggestions would be great too! Thanks in advance!!

Hi, everyone! This is a random post but how would you guys feel about the MAO changing the format, next year, for the Miss America Pageant? Here's what I have in mind:

Parade of States- on-stage; no cheesy dancing, just a simple intro: Name/Miss State/Education Background

Announcement of Top 15- the 15 contestants with the overall highest preliminary scores

Presentation of Former Miss Americas prior to SS/EG competitions (love when they acknowledge each individual former Miss America on the live telecast!)

Top 15 compete in both Swimsuit AND Evening Gown

Announcement of Top 10- the 10 contestants with the highest combined scores after Swimsuit & Evening Gown

Top 10 compete in Talent (NO WAITING ON-STAGE! The contestants should already know the order of Top 10 Talent)

Announcement of Top 5- the 5 contestants with the scores after Talent

Top 5 answer the On-Stage Question

Current Miss America's Final Walk

Announcement of 4RU, 3RU, 2RU, 1RU and the new Miss America according to the Top 5 overall combined scores from the Final Night

What do you guys think?

With my local quickly approaching, I need some swimsuit advice. I am rather apple shaped with a few extra pounds to loose. It does not help that I am petite. What swimsuits would look well for someone trying to divert the eyes up or down. Local is two weeks away and I've already loss close to 20 pounds, so yes; I am trying! Thank you in advance.

Subject: How To Effectively Complain About An MAO Issue On Any Level


Author:
FYI:
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 14:20:11 10/24/14 Fri

Speaking from experience I want to share with you that in order to stand any chance whatsoever of any complaint being given any consideration by the MAO national office the following tedious process MUST be adhered to - once you read this you'll understand why only very committed people ever bother to carry through. For better or worse for the most part we will always choose what is easiest for us rather than what is best for someone else.

#1 All initial letters of complaint must be sent directly to the specific person involved. This may not be done anonymously. The letter should contain only the facts (not feelings or hunches) that you are aware of and why you believe an explanation is in order. Also include a requested time period for a response (14-21 days is appropriate.) This letter should be mailed with signature receipt required.

#2 Note cc: on this letter and send to the appropriate local ED, state ED and Marc. All these copies should also be sent with signature receipts required.

#3 When the original recipient responds the issue may be resolved at that point. If not (or if they do not respond) then a letter similar to the 1st letter should be sent to the local ED (or next person up the ladder) again requesting a time frame for response with copies sent to original person, the state ED and Marc. Enclose a copy of the response if you received one or the signature card if you did not & mail all requiring signature receipt.

#4 When the next recipient responds the issue may be resolved at that point. If not (or if they do not respond) then a letter similar to the 1st & 2nd letter should be sent to the State ED (or next person up the ladder) again requesting a time frame for response with copies sent to original person, the state ED and Marc. Enclose a copy of the response if you received one or the signature card if you did not & mail all requiring signature receipt.

#5 When the next recipient responds the issue may be resolved at that point. If not (or if they do not respond) then a letter similar to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd letter should be sent to the Marc again requesting a time frame for response with copies sent to original person, the local ED and state ED. Enclose a copy of the response if you received one or the signature card if you did not & mail all requiring signature receipt.

#6 If the issue is not yet resolved to your satisfaction after all those steps have been taken, copies of everything you have gathered - your letters, responses, signature receipts should be copied & sent as many MAO Board members (including Sam) as you choose with a cover letter requesting that the non-action on the issue be discussed at the next board meeting. Again these all should be sent with signature receipt required.

#7 is optional. If after contacting board members the issue is still not resolved this may be the time to go "public" with all the information you have gathered (or lack there of) by mailing similar packets as sent to the BOD to local, state and national sponsors asking them to take note & question the issue themselves. If the MAO won't pay attention to you, they may pay attention to the money.

At this point you have done all that you can through the legitimate chain of command and whether you effected a change or not you can be proud of doing the right thing. Your choices then become to resign yourself to the fact that you volunteer or compete in a program that is less than perfect or resign from every aspect of a program you can no longer in good conscience be part of.
