Miss Jefferson County is an official Miss Alabama America preliminary. As a local preliminary in the Miss America organization, Miss Jefferson County is a part of the largest scholarship resource for young women in the world. In order for young ladies to compete in the Miss Alabama America state program, they must hold a preliminary title. Miss Jefferson County is a title that serves as a ticket to Miss Alabama. Also, Miss Jefferson County strives to be a servant in the community. It is a requirement of the Miss America organization for each state and local contestant to be actively involved in community service—with an issue important to them and with the national platform of the Children’s Miracle Network that has been adopted by Miss America.
It takes hard work from volunteers for the Miss Jefferson County program to exist. We are a not-for-profit organization (501c6); so, each year, the volunteers have to raise money for every aspect involved in producing Miss Jefferson County—from providing scholarships to the winner and alternates to putting on the production. Last year, Miss Jefferson County received $1000 in scholarship money and over thirty other prizes. We wish to match or increase that number this year.
