Go to:
http://www-users.med.cornell.edu/~spon/picu/calc/agecalc.htm

Enter contestant’s birthday on date of birth line.
Enter 12/31/2015 on age at this date line (age deadline to compete this year)
Click “calculate”
Up comes a subscreen that says “the specified date….” click ok.
Voila! You have the age in years. If it is 25, you're too old to compete this year. If 24 or lower, you're good to go. Can't make it any simpler than that, right?

Does anyone know the real deal on Alyssa Marsh? She seems to be causing quite a stir in NJ. Does anyone know where she attended High School before college? Has she ever resided in New Jersey prior to July?

I know some of these videos have already been posted or linked, but putting them in one thread in much the same manner they will be performed at Miss America makes for better arm-chair viewing IMO. Anyway, here is first half of Sigma talent!

California--Vocal




Mississippi--Vocal

This video is from 2012 Miss MS pageant.




Montana--Harp & Vocal




South Carolina--Clogging

Was unable to find a solo video, however she performs with a clogging team called TNC Elite. The group made it on America's Got Talent. She is in the video below, wearing a plaid skirt and red buttoned vest.




Rhode Island--Flute




Oregon--Vocal




North Carolina--Operatic Vocal

Video is from Miss NC 2013. Miss NC 2014 performs at 18:40.



Colorado--Tahitian Dance

Best I was able to find was this interview and backstage clips. Miss CO 2014's gown and SS can also be seen on this video. Her talent (albeit just a snippet) can be seen at 1:30.





Arkansas--Vocal

Talent Prelim/Overall Winners in this half: CA, MS, OR, NC (I believe that is it for this group but please let me know otherwise!)

Miss America: 'Being smart is cool'


Nina Davuluri, a.k.a. Miss America 2014, wants young women to know the value of education. "Being smart is cool," Davuluri said Monday at a roundtable discussion of diversity in STEM education.

Davuluri is in Washington, D.C. this week speaking with teachers and legislators about STEM, Politico reports. She spoke to this year's Einstein Fellows, a group of teachers who spend a year working at Washington agencies like the National Science Foundation, about STEM on Monday.

In addition to being the first Indian American chosen as Miss America, Davuluri has distinguished herself from past winners with her focus on STEM and education. Earlier this year, she spoke at Yale about her passion for intellectual pursuits. Before becoming Miss America, Davuluri studied brain, behavior, and cognitive science at the University of Michigan.
Davuluri is passionate about increasing diversity in STEM, and she told Morning Education that she wants to be a role model for female students, Politico reports. "Education is the key to success, and we need to make more students see that," Davuluri said. On Wednesday, she will join Attorney General Eric Holder, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough for a "Let's Read! Let's Move!" event to encourage young people to read and exercise during the summer months.

Also have 2001, 2003 and 2004. Also 3 Miss California. 1973 to 1975. And 16 PAGEANTRY slick magazines.
Any helpful hints about how to distribute them? I don't want to sell them for more than a dollar, plus the postage and envelopes. (the dollar is for the work to wrap and send).
I'm in California. Should I contact the Miss California org?
The first cover (1959), has Mary Ann Mobley on it.
Any help will be appreciated in this "hate-to-lose-them" procedure. Thanks!
