In the case of giving 10 points to the girl you want to win, and then giving 1 point to the 2nd-best contestant. Some people say you HAVE to do this to protect the contestant you feel is best. Others say absolutely don't do this. What's the real verdict? Might judge this upcoming season & want to stay consistent with the rest of the country.

Subject: Does anyone have any suggestions for a couple of modern, upbeat songs to play -- one for when the Teen is introduced and one for when the Miss is introduced during a pageant. I'm looking for only about 30 seconds, enough time for the titleholder to walk across the stage, acknowledge the audience and meet the emcee at the podium where she will be interviewed. Thanks for the help.

I watched Miss America and let me just say....I know we are in the year 2015 and times change and it's all about ratings but I sure as hell miss the days when we had top ten compete in everything. I also miss the days when the most WELL ROUNDED girl won, and not just a girl with a stellar interview and passable at everything else. Most importantly I miss TALENT....true God given talent that would keep me mesmerized for 3:15 seconds. Not this crap girls throw together for the sake of competing in a pageant that just so happens to have "talent". As far as the gowns, I have been vocal about not being a Tony Bowls fan, so when I heard he was designing all the gowns I nearly died. I will say, his designs have gotten a little better, but i'm still not fan enough to see all of his work showcased in one night. I will say I loved Virginia's and HATED Ohio's. I mean HATED!!! She looked like she had the curves of a 2x4 in that gown, plus it was so dated and not in a good way kinda dated.

I won't touch on everyone just the few things that stuck out in my mind.

MISSISSIPPI: Talented and robbed of a top 5 spot based on that alone. I mean seriously, beyond ridiculous!

TEXAS: Good lord what happened? Everything was wrong from head to toe. the face and talent....simply gorgeous, but the body and styling were a total no! How in the world did the Texas prep team let that physique get past Mid July! Plus that gown!! WTF?!?! They took a young, beautiful and vibrant girl and put her in a homely mother of the bride Zac Posen. such a shame, they ruined that girl!

OHIO: The girl literally stepped out of 1985 and I was in heaven!!

VIRGINIA: was my winner. Looks, talent, body, smarts. they missed the boat with this one.

OKLAHOMA: WTF?!?!? How in the world would what she did even be remotely considered dance?! I laughed for about more than half of that talent. She danced as if she was drunk and it was amazing!!

Kira's talent: SAD SAD SAD day when THAT type of talent can win Miss America. I mean seriously, it's the one thing that originally set us apart and now it's just laughable and seriously not at all a deciding factor in who wins Miss America, so just get rid of talent all together. I mean if you had told me in 1970 that a mediocre singer banging a red solo cup on the stage at Miss America could actually one day win....I would have laughed in your face and then slapped it! I mean seriously, I would have been more impressed if she got 2 dixie cups and some string and tried to make a long distance call!! Just pathetic.

I know my bitching and bellyaching will never bring back the glitz, glamor and pageantry of Miss America of tester year, but I sure do Miss it. I wanna see girls walking down the runway in liquid beaded gowns designed by Stephen Yearick with 2 Chandeliers hanging from both ears with hair the width of an opened umbrella!

Thats all I have.

Found an interesting article online. google "Miss Yonkers 1924" and click on the website SoYo Sunset Forums - Yuku

We thought Delaware and Florida has interesting outcomes last year then read about Yonkers in 1924. Lots of great old photos and a really interesting story.

I'm pleased to announce that the Road to Miss America contest is officially open for this pageant season!

For those of you who haven't participated before, all you need to do is pick the contestant you think will win a particular state title. Visit the Road to Miss America Board at www.voy.com/241665/, and under the thread for each particular state pageant, post your choice, using the same nickname or handle each time. (You don't have to register for an official one with Voy.)

Just make sure your choice is posted before the deadline. Points will be awarded as follows:

If your choice wins: 7 points
If your choice finishes 1st RU: 3 points
If your choice finishes 2nd RU: 1 point

The person with the most points at the end of the state pageant season wins. You can participate in all 53 contestants or as few as you'd like. And sometimes the boldest guesses are the right ones!

I'll open threads for state pageants as their locals end. Right now threads are open for AL, GA, HI, KS, LA, MI, MN, MS, MO, NE, NH, ND, OK, SC, and TN. (If someone can verify that all of the locals for Miss TX are done, and that the pageant will be held July 4, I'll get that thread up.)

You can participate this year even if you didn't last year. It's definitely addicting!!

The Miss Nebraska Scholarship Pageant, located in North Platte, announced a change in leadership on Saturday. Jay & Amy Engel, who have been the Co-Executive Directors for the past seven years, will be stepping down from their position after the pageant this June. The Engels began volunteering with the organization in 1995. “We started out as a host family for the pageant that first year,” says Jay Engel. “We realized the amazing things this program was doing for young women and wanted to become involved. Between the two of us we had many jobs over the last 20 years-from writing the script to being Executive Directors.” Amy adds, “We are grateful for the opportunity to meet the variety of people across the state & across the nation because of our involvement with the pageant. We are thankful for the support of our board, volunteers and the community of North Platte.” The Miss Nebraska Scholarship pageant is comprised completely of volunteers. It is part of the Miss America Organization, the largest scholarship provider for young women in the world. The new Executive Directors will be Rachel Daly, currently the Executive Director for the Miss Nebraska’s Outstanding Teen program, and Kayla (Batt) Jacox, Miss Nebraska 2012. “We are excited that Rachel & Kayla have accepted the Executive Director position. They have deep passion for the program and wonderful ideas on how to keep moving the Miss Nebraska program forward. We know they will do a fabulous job,” says Jay. The state pageant has been held in North Platte for the past 34 years and on June 6th the organization will crown Miss Nebraska 2015. For more information: www.missnebraska.org
