Miss Alabama’s Outstanding Teen Candidates 2022
. Must be at least Thirteen (13) years of age on the first day of the State Competition in which she competes(March 4, 2022) ; and must not be older than seventeen (17) years of age as of July 31st in the calendar year (2022) of the State Competition in which she competes, unless she is 18 years old and has not graduated from high school as of July 31st in the calendar year of the State Competition in which she competes.
For the 2022 Competition year only, since we were unable to hold a state or local competition in the 2021 competition year, the candidates in 2021 would have been their final year to compete will be grandfathered in to compete in 2022.
For 2022 Competitions we will allow candidates to compete if they are not older than eighteen (18) years of age on July 31st in the calendar year of the State Competition.
Some candidates may choose to go ahead and compete in the Miss Competition if they are eighteen (18) years of age as of July 31st in the calendar year of the State Competition and must be a high school graduate or equivalent by July 31st in the calendar year of the State Competition.
For avoidance of doubt, 13 to 17 year old high school graduates as well as 18 year old non graduates as of July 31st compete at the MAOTeen level and not the Miss America level. However, if the candidate met this eligibility to compete in MAOTeen as of July 31st, 2021, she is eligible to continue in the postponed State and subsequent National Teen Competition in 2022.
Our Miss Heart of Dixie & Miss Cotton State's Outstanding Teen Paperwork will be available in June, 2021. Please check back soon!
