Miss Alaska 2017 and more!

Well, we did it again!

 

BACK TO BACK STATE WINNERS! We are sooooo proud of Emma and Angelina! Their hard work and dedication payed off as they were crowned Miss Alaska’s Outstanding Teen and Miss Alaska 2017!

This was such an amazing year at Miss Alaska.  Each and every girl that stepped foot onto that stage was ready to take on the job of a state titleholder, and we are so proud of every contestant.  What an amazing experience to be able to watch this years class of girls act with kindness, laughter, and professionalism throughout the week.  As part of the production team, I can honestly say these girls brought their A game.

Our beautiful Emma walked away with the talent and fitness awards ( I know there were a few others but I can’t seem to find which ones) along with the crown.  She is heading to Miss America’s Outstanding Teen the end of July and we wish her the best of luck there!

 

Angelina’s story is unique and special.  As she was named 1st runner up at our pageant in January, Angelina graciously filled the title of Miss Anchorage just 2 months prior to Miss Alaska.  Miss Anchorage is has a unique trip every July to Chitose Japan in conjunction with the Sister Cities Commission.  We are responsible for fundraising for that trip, and she did not shy away from that task.  Along with that, she also was preparing to compete at Miss Alaska! Not only did she listen to our advice, she made time and huge efforts in aligning practices with us, putting in work on her talent, modeling, and platform, and spent countless hours prepping for her interview. Her work paid off, and we are ECSTATIC to see her on that iconic Miss America Stage in September!

 

We would also like to make a special shout out to Ellie Gottstein ( Miss Cook Inlet 2016).  You see, once you become one of our girls  you stay one of our girls.  She was awarded CMN Miracle Maker,  People’s Choice, Top Ticket Sales, Fitness, Talent, and 1st Runner up to Miss Alaska. We love you dearly and are so proud of all you accomplished this year!

 

Now with all that said, this brings me to our next item of business, we will not be crowning new titleholders, due to the fact that we have moved up our pageant!

The 2018 Miss Anchorage Scholarship pageant will take place October 28th, 2017 at West High School!

2017 Miss Anchorage Pageant!

Hello again!

The 2017 pageant season is coming up and we would love to add you to our little pageant family! We have recently updated our contestant paperwork page with the new contracts, the resume and essay instructions, as well as examples.

We are doing things a little bit differently this year, all paperwork deadlines will be submitted electronically.  Once received, you will receive an email letting you know we have your paperwork, and if any corrections are needed we will include those as well.  Also in that email we will send you a mailing address to send the hard copies too.

All paperwork will need to be sent to missanchorageorganization@gmail.com

If you have never competed in a pageant before, don’t be afraid to! This is a great program that provides many young women with scholarships and service opportunities, not to mention a whole new group of friends. The newly crowned Miss America 2017 Savvy Shields, has been awarded over $90,000 in scholarships in all her years competing in the Outstanding Teen Program and the Miss America Organization.  If that doesn’t give you incentive to compete I don’t know what else will!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.  We are here to help! So with that said, here are the deadlines for this years contestants!

 

  • 2017 Contracts are due December 3rd, 2016 by midnight via email.
    • Please make sure to properly fill out all blank spaces.  Our Organization is the Miss Anchorage Scholarship Program.
    •  Teens will also need to submit their non refundable $100 entry fee to our paypal account at missanchorageorganization@gmail.com
  • All contestant paperwork and monies due January 3rd, 2017.
  • CMN money due January 13, 2017

Make sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as this website for updated information!

 

 

2016 Miss Alaska Pageant

The 2016 Miss Alaska Pageant took place last Friday, and boy did we have an exciting night! Let me just say, there was some tough competition this year.  Each and every single one of the girls who competed for Miss Alaska and Miss Alaska’s Outstanding Teen were intelligent, beautiful, kind, and courageous young women.  Any one of them could have held the titles with grace and poise. Our girls worked so hard to prepare for this pageant, and it payed off! We would like to congratulate our Miss Anchorage Marlise Williams on her placement of 1st runner up to Miss Alaska! She was flawless all night and looked amazing every time she walked out on stage. Her talent (Belly dancing) had the audience entranced, and we were too! Congrats Marlise on a superb job at Miss Alaska!

We also would like to congratulate our new 2016 Miss Alaska’s Outstanding Teen

On January 30 2016, we crowned three new  wonderful titleholders.  From left to right, Miss Cook Inlet Kendall Bautista, Miss Anchorage’s Outstanding Teen Danielle Stam, and Miss Anchorage Marlise Williams. We had a wonderful pageant, thanks to our amazing contestants and family supporters.  We can’t wait to continue our year with these ladies. To learn a little bit about each of our new queens, please scroll over our about tab where you will find a profile for each young lady.

Our girls have been busy prepping for state and making appearances throughout our community. To name just a couple, they participated in the Fur Rondy Parade and the Miss America Serves day where they read books to children in hopes of increasing a love for literacy in our community.

The Miss Alaska and Miss Alaska’s Outstanding Teen competition is on June 3rd at the Wendy Williamson Theatre and we would love to see you there to cheer on our girls as they compete for the state title.

We will be posting here throughout their year about their adventures, so follow us to see photos and read stories, and also make sure to check out our social media sites listed under our contact tab!

Updates on December Workshops

Thank you so much for all being so wonderful to Hannah during head shots, we truly had a great time and the photos look amazing! As far as getting them back, they will come to me first so I can put them in the program book and once everything dies down from the crazy we will get them out to you for your keeping.

As you know we originally planned to have workshops on December 15 and 17th. Due to holiday schedules, finals, and lack of venue for these we have decided to cancel them and wait till January. I promise you the routines for walking are super super super easy and will not take much practice. The opening number will just be walking patterns as well so again super super easy. Word of advice practice waling in your shoes now! Here are the songs again so you can practice with music, it doesn’t mean you need to walk to the beat however.

Evening: Paradise- Coldplay
Swimsuit: Worth it-Fifth Harmony

Teens- I will try to get a you tube video link out to you before January for your fitness routine- it will be easy to so please don’t stress!

As always, please ask us for help if you need it! With the holidays we will do our best to reply promptly, but we are spending time with our families too so there will be a chunk of days where we kindly ask you refrain from calling or texting and email us and we will get back to you after our break 🙂 EVERYTHING is due JANUARY 11 from 4-7 pm at the BP energy center. If you need any forms etc please get them on here, they are all there for you! If you are unable to meet during that time please arrange a different time PRIOR to the deadline to turn in your paperwork.

Last thing! TICKETS! I will be getting the tickets hopefully on Tuesday this week. I will be giving each girl 10 tickets to start with- remember they are $12 a piece and if you loose them you buy them. I will let you know when I have them and I’ll have you all come pick them up from me at your convenience.

You all are wonderful! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
