Biographical Information 

This form is due May 1, 2023. Do not submit this form until all of your outfits have been approved by the Board of Directors.
Philosophy of Life, also on this form for the judges' books, is due at the live workshop, March 11th. You will be recorded stating your Philosophy of Life at the live workshop on March 11th, which will be the final recording date. 
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE FORM BEFORE FILLING OUT YOUR FORM and SUBMITTING. 
Examples for introductions are included in the instructions below the fillable form areas, therefore it is best to read the entire form before submitting. Do not copy the examples, but rather use these as guides.

Your answers should include information that you consider important for the judges to know about you. The judges may take their interview questions from your Bio/Resume. Use the space provided and no more is allowed. Do not include everything you have ever done in your life. Only include the information needed for the pageant and judges. We will not include extra pages; therefore, there is no need to send extra information. Keep your answers simple, direct, and to the point. Write your information in a format that is interesting and piques the judge's interest in wanting to know more. 

Example: 

Career - Answer: Model, Actress, Author

Answering in short form allows the judges to then possibly ask, "Where did you model?" or "When did you begin modeling?" or "When were you an actress?" or "What roles have you portrayed?" or "Are you a published author?" or "What is the name of your book(s)?" You don't want to tell them all of the details in your answer, because you want to leave information for them to ask that intrigues them. 

Please screenshot/copy these answers, in order to review them before the pageant. 

Your Bio/Resume information will be reviewed by the judges and may be used for the script during the pageant. 

Do not say the same thing in every question. Have variety in your answers, your passion, purpose, accomplishments, your personality, and humor is always a great touch too!

You will need to plan for 6 different outfits.

Have all outfits on hangers and ready to wear. It helps to organize each outfit by putting all items together for that outfit. Put jewelry in a bag and hang on the hanger with the appropriate outfit and organize in this manner for traveling and when setting up in the dressing room. When you arrive at the venue, you will check in your hotel room. Leave your outfits for Queen's Dinner, Interview with the Judges, and pajamas in the room. Take your outfits: evening gown, opening number, active lifestyle, and fashion runway to the dressing room and hang together on the rack near your assigned table. Again, please keep all elements of each outfit together. The dressing rooms are full of many items. It is your responsibility as a delegate to organize and manage your outfits, shoes, and accessories. Other delegates are not allowed to help you find lost items or organize your items. Asking other delegates to take care of you takes time away from them. We will have dressing room attendants to help with things like zipping zippers and to keep up with the schedule, but they are not allowed to organize your personal items. Wear something appropriate but comfortable to rehearsal on Friday.

Queen's Dinner: (Friday night before pageant)

This is a meet and greet dinner the night before the pageant. The pageant will sponsor this dinner at no extra cost to delegates. Plan to wear a cocktail dress, jumpsuit, or evening wear pants/top. You may wear a long evening gown, but don't feel this is necessary and add unnecessary expense to your budget. The members of the Board of Directors and a photographer will attend. The judges will not be at the dinner. You will be asked to stand and introduce yourself. Sashes and crowns are required at the dinner. Information about guests will be announced at a later date.

Interview with Judges: (Saturday morning before pageant)

Wear something you would wear to a job interview or would wear if invited to be a keynote speaker. Suits, whether slacks or skirts, with a jacket are great for this interview. You may also wear a dress. Be sure you are able to comfortably sit down. Look at yourself or have someone make your picture sitting in the outfit. Think about what jewelry and shoes you wear with this outfit. Enhance with jewelry and shoes but do not go overboard. Remember to stay business minded when planning for interview. This is your first impression with the judges! You will not wear crowns and sashes to the interview.

Opening Number

A sequin outfit is required for opening number, with delegates wearing varying colors. Three (3) delegates will be allowed to wear the same color. Once a color has been chosen by three (3) delegates, the color option is filled, and you must choose from other color options. Color options are (royal blue, hot/bright pink, light pink, emerald green, lime green, orange, yellow, purple/lavender, red (true red - not crimson), and turquoise.) You may wear black pants or skirt with your color of sequin top, or a sequin dress or jumpsuit of the chosen color. No other colors are allowed for opening number, and the main part of the outfit must be the chosen color. This may be a dress, jumpsuit, or pantsuit, but no evening gowns or long dresses. You will not wear your crown or sash. Wear something stylish. Be sure you can walk, move, and dance a simple dance in the outfit you choose. For opening number, please wear black shoes, and be sure you are able to walk up and down steps, around the stage, and perform simple dance movements in them. There will be a simple dance routine taught to you through videos and on the workshop day. You will rehearse several times the day before the pageant also. Workshop date TBD.

Active Lifestyle

This outfit should represent your more casual side. It should state what you do to stay active, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. You may play tennis or golf, travel, exercise, dance, write poetry, teach, fundraise, read to others, garden, etc., therefore go with something you do and love. You will be allowed to carry one (1) prop. Example: if you play tennis, you may carry a tennis racket. The prop must be something you are able to carry on and off stage without assistance and requires no set up. If you need help deciding on active wear, call a board member to assist you.

Example of an introduction for Active Lifestyle: 

Some people like to go to the beach; some people like to go to the mountains.  Elizbeth loves to travel the world!  From the Great Wall of China to the Alps of Switzerland, from the cobblestone streets of Old Quebec to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, BUT her favorite trip of all was to the Rose Bowl in California to see Alabama win the National Championship! Roll Tide!

Fashion Runway

Show off your modeling ability with this outfit. Think of models walking and showing off their outfits. You may wear a jumpsuit with a train, cocktail dress with a train, dresses or pants outfits with sequins/rhinestones. No evening gowns allowed for this outfit. 

Example 1 for Fashion Runway Introduction:

Susan says this fashion-forward jumpsuit makes her feel flirty, elegant, and cosmopolitan! Mixing the classic with the lavish, she has definitely channeled her inner diva!

Example 2 for Fashion Runway Introduction:

Elizabeth believes in Dressing for Success!  From her very first interview with the Superintendent of Education in 1964, in Savannah, GA, wearing a blue suit, a Jackie Kennedy pillbox hat and a pair of gloves, to her final interview with the President of Troy University Dothan, wearing a bright yellow suit trimmed in black, with bright yellow and black accessories, it always worked.  Because……guess what? She always got the job!

Elegance and Inner Beauty (Evening Gown with On-Stage Question)

This is your chance to be glamorous. Your dress should be long and elegant. Wear shoes you can walk and stand in. Most delegates wear dresses with lots of sparkles or beads. Wear something that picks up the lighting. If you plan to wear high heels, please practice walking around the house in them and up and down stairs. Don't buy new shoes and wear them the first time on the day of the pageant. You will model your evening gown and then approach the microphone for your question. After answering the question, step back for a final pose, then exit the stage. Your evening gown must not require being held up when walking around the stage. You must have it altered to an appropriate length for walking without tripping or holding it. If you bring an evening gown to the pageant that you have to hold, or trips you when walking on the stage, you will be required to pin the dress, or change outfits. The script will not be changed at the pageant.

Example 1 of Elegance and Inner Beauty Introduction:

This past year, Susan was able to make a life-long dream a reality. She is the founder of Kids Play Alabama, a non-profit which helps low-income families afford the cost of youth sports' fees and equipment. She believes that helping others is what brings us the most happiness in life.

Example 2 of Elegance and Inner Beauty Introduction:

Elizabeth is a lifelong educator. She has received numerous awards including Marquis’ Who’s Who of America’s Teachers and Who’s Who of American Women.  She is a Professor Emeritus from Troy University.  She loves life and her family has called her the “Energizer Bunny.”  Elizabeth believes in the artist, Pablo Picasso’s statement, “The meaning of life is to find your gift.  The purpose of life is to give it away.”  She will encourage women to do all the good they can, in all the ways they can, for as many people they can, for as long as they can (Adapted from John Wesley) and never stop giving their gift(s) away. (P.S.And enjoy every minute of it!)
