Top 10 in swimsuit, gown, talent and then announce top 5. Q & A and announce runners up and winner. It's simple, it works.

Subject: I would like to learn about the most successful local pageant in each state and why it is successful? Scholarships? Long term volunteers? Community Support? REcruiting strategy? State pageant success? All of it with details. Perhaps then some new or older locals who lost enthusiasm could read about some best practices and adopt them thereby strenghtening the program from the bottom up. Anyone want to start?

Someone had posted a question asking if I was coming back to MAO Class Updates. I posted a response but that was the same night as Kate's chat so it was pushed back.

I have not abandoned MAO Class Updates and my absence has been unintentional. Before I left for Miss America this year, I made a significantly large job change. I was at my previous job for 4 years and it thankfully allotted me a lot of time to work on MAO Class Updates. With my new job, I unfortunately don't have that privilege. So as I'm getting settled into my new career, I'm trying to find a place to fit MAO Class Updates in my life. I definitely don't want to give it up so I'm pushing really hard to get into a routine so I can put aside time to work on the page. Also, I just went under contract to buy my first home and I'm (hopefully) closing November 14th so with that added on my plate I've had to put it on a back burner for the time being. In addition, I won't be competing in USA this year. I like behind the scenes better. :)

I just wanted to let you all know what was going on and let you know that I'm not planning to let MAO Class Updates go anytime in the near future. It (and you) have been great to me. I feel horrible for my absence but sometimes life gets in the way. Thank you all for understanding and thank you for thinking of me and know that I have not forgotten about you!
