Work with our Local Titleholders
Local titleholders around the state of California are already joining rotary clubs, chambers, and charity organizations at local volunteering events and galas. We want to extend that opportunity to your organization through partnership with the Bay Area Scholarship Alliances.
Please let us know if you have any interest in partnering with your local Miss America organization. Miss San Francisco, Miss Peninsula and Miss Alameda County would be more than happy to volunteer and/or attend your event as local ambassadors to your program.
Each candidate participates in an individual 10-minute press conference-style interview with a panel of judges. Candidates are questioned on their background as presented on their resume, their educational and career goals, their opinions on current events and social issues, their social impact initiative, and their interests, hobbies and extracurricular activities.
On Stage Question
The on-stage interview is a continuation of the Private Interview. The objective is to evaluate a candidate’s ability to think on their feet and answer a question of general interest to people her age, including, but not limited to, local, state and national current events.
This phase of competition is where the delegate showcases her commitment to health and fitness initiatives. This phase may include her experiences with self-care and health goals, and related initiatives, or a health/fitness statement. A delegate’s discipline and commitment to being physically healthy is a key to success in all other areas of life, and the rigors of representing the Miss America. This phase of competition is performed as a choreographed fitness wear modeling routine and all delegates must wear red Rebel athletic wear.
Candidates perform a 90-second routine of their own choosing, including but not limited to: singing, dance, gymnastics, instrumental music, dramatic or comedy monologues, poetry, baton twirling, speed painting, science, and ventriloquism.
The red carpet portion is designed for panelist to look at how the candidate exhibits their own personal style, attitude, personality, grace, presence, and confidence in evening wear or whatever a candidate would wear at a formal red carpet event. Note: Neither the gown itself nor the estimated cost of the gown will be considered in scoring; The panelists are only looking at composure, confidence, and command of the stage.
