Dear State Executive Directors,

We are so very proud to share our excitement with you as we announce that Sunday, September 13, 2015, will be the live broadcast date for the 2016 Miss America Competition on ABC - our 95th Anniversary Celebration! Throughout the decades, Miss America has evolved into an incredible organization because of your tireless efforts and those of your volunteers who support our organization. Today, Miss America remains an iconic symbol with roots connected to our rich history in Atlantic City, NJ. The return to Atlantic City allows us to once again showcase our Miss America event in the beautiful destination where it all began. This September promises to be another monumental event for our Miss America family and our television viewers during the live Sunday night broadcast from Boardwalk Hall.

As an amazing 95th Anniversary is being planned, the two-panel judging process is being reinstated this year. The Expert Judges Panel will judge the interviews and preliminary competitions to determine the top 15 contestants and their composite scores. The Celebrity Judges Panel will review the top 15 contestants' interviews and judge the final night of competition to crown Miss America 2016.

In addition, for the final night of Competition only, there will be changes to the judge's scoring and percentages. The new percentages will be as follows; 25% Composite, 10% Lifestyle and Fitness, 15% Evening Gown, 30% Talent and 20% Final Question plus, there will be no final ballot. These changes, ratified unanimously by our board, will not affect the 2015 State and Local Competitions, or the 2016 Miss America Competition preliminaries.

As we work with our Atlantic City partners and hotel properties on the Friends & Family rates, we are excited to inform you that The Claridge Hotel is being refurbished and looks absolutely beautiful. The Claridge is thrilled to partner with the Miss America Organization and has established a wonderful "Friends & Family" block in their elegant hotel connected to Bally's. To make your reservations at the Claridge, please call 1-844-AC-IS-FUN or www.claridge.com and be sure to use Group Code "GFriends" - the special rates are $99 weekdays, $149 Friday, $249 Saturday and $129 Sunday. There are 500 rooms available on a first-come, first-served basis. These rates will be the best rates available at the Claridge this fall so act fast. We expect to share the remaining AC hotel information with you at the end of the month and ask that you please do not contact the other AC hotels until the details are finalized.

Our award-winning television producer, Anthony Eaton, and his company Tall Pony Productions, have produced our live event broadcast for the last eight years and will once again produce our Anniversary event on ABC. Partnering with dick clark productions has created even greater enthusiasm for this special anniversary broadcast as the momentum leading up to the event grows!

The preliminary nights of the competition are scheduled for Tuesday, September 8th through Thursday, September 10th. The Miracle Mile Walk will take place on Friday, September 11th, beginning in front of Boardwalk Hall and culminating at Steel Pier. The much anticipated Miss America "Show Us Your Shoes" Parade will be held on the famed Boardwalk on Saturday, September 12th. Other special events are being planned, and we will announce these events as they are confirmed.

As we begin to prepare for an outstanding competition, we are so pleased to know that we can count on you to make this year another tremendous success for our organization. We extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for your continued loyalty and support!

All the best,

Sam Haskell, III
Executive Chairman & CEO

As a local director, managing multiple titleholders, I will encourage them to participate, however, at this late stage before the state pageant, I will not expect them to fundraise, the $100.00 entry fee alone for locals is a struggle, and they already are passionate about their platform and service opportunities. Miss America Titleholders serve everyday. (NT) -- can only do so much

Don't forget all the begging, I mean FUNDRAISING they did at the local level for the entry fee, I mean DONATION they have to raise to compete. (I thought donation mean voluntary, but I digress...) Then raising money to compete at State and all of the THOUSANDS of dollars in wardrobe, talent and interview prep/coaching, and misc costs like family tickets and 4 nights of hotel stays, and then MORE prep and donations and fund raising for Nationals since many girls don't come from wealthy families and boards don't pay for everything. Enough is enough. I sometimes think it's easier to pay the $1200 to compete in the State MUO pageant and at least know what kind of money you're getting into. And as our state has almost triple the contestants competing in the Miss div of MUO in our state vs MAO- it looks like they think so, too. What a shame- MAO should be the #1 everywhere.

Oh and I forgot to mention AD pages on top of all of the fundraising. UGH!

Someone posted that every Chair of the MAO served without compensation. The current chairman started demanding salary, expenses reimbursed and when the people actually giving the money pushed back he started allowing people to retire...so their salaries could be freed up and could be paid to others.

Someone else posted that the current Chair was given $500,000 in 2012. $100,000 of that was paid, and the debt remained on the books. It was in the newspaper. He was interviewed. He confirmed it. He became CEO the following
year, in 2013.

The Chairman of the Board of a non-profit organization, especially one which prides itself as "ALL VOLUNTEER", is NOT paid. So there is no need for any sense of 'pay back' or being owed for those 7 years.

NO board member for a non-profit is compensated. I am a different poster, and I do not agree with judging people's motives. I don't know anything about the current Chairman's motives. However, let's not keep bringing this up that he served for free. All of the board members do, and sometimes people serve for POLITICAL reasons.

Duke of Edinburgh Awards

I don't know why people continue to spread falsehoods about DoE being some big requirement when none of the last three Miss Americas were named DoE medalists when they won. It's something you CAN do. Not something you HAVE to do. I don't know about everyone else, but I'm really so sick of all the bellyaching about requirements. It's a HOBBY. Just like cheerleading, just like sports. It requires time, a lot of it sometimes. It requires money, a lot of it. If you don't have the time or money, then don't do it, but all this bitching is nothing mroe than entitlement -- give me a title but expect nothing!

I have 2 job interviews coming up - both second round (after the telephone screen). One of the recruiters actually told me to "tighten up" my examples for the manager I'll be talking to. I don't exactly know why I do this - but I am extremely tangential & do not talk in linear bullet points, as one is often expected to do in an interview. This has been a very longstanding problem, leading to more bad interviews than I can count (despite endless rehearsals too). And, it's pretty embarrassing given that my work experience and education would qualify me for all the jobs I got rejected from. It's not even a nervous thing - my friends know I do it too.

I just found out that Miss NH OT's platform is financial literacy. Honestly, I can't think of a better platform for teenagers. Understanding how to save/spend their money responsibly is a great thing to learn before heading off to college and/or joining the workforce. Way to go Miss NHOT!

Any other unique platforms in teen or Miss?

Subject: Releasing Contestants

Does your state release the contestants to their families right after finals or do they have them stay in the hotel room with their roommate after finals and release them the next morning? Does your state have a brunch or anything the next morning for the contestants? Pros and cons to each. I'm curious what the different reasonings and circumstances are. I should mention, I have no personal opinion either way, simply curious as it came up in recent conversation.
