Purpose
The purpose of the Miss Alabama Agriculture program is to promote and publicize Alabama agriculture and
the Alabama farmer. She will serve as the ambassador for agriculture and represent all farm commodities just
as the Farmers Federation being a general farm organization represents all commodity groups.

Plan
The method of selecting a county contestant is left up to each county. Counties may want to hold a county
pageant to select the most suitable participant.

An official entry form will be furnished to each county Farmers Federation and must be submitted to the
Alabama Farmers Federation by October 1.

Miss Alabama Agriculture will be selected at the state annual meeting by a panel of judges. An alternate
winner will also be selected.

Rules
The participant must be an Alabama Farmers Federation member or a member of an Alabama Farmers
Federation family.

The participant must be between the ages of 17 and 25 by December 1 in the year of the contest. She must
have never been married and agrees to remain unmarried during her reign.

The participant must be sponsored by her county Farmers Federation.

The participant will be judged during Alabama Farmers Federation’s annual meeting.

Contestants will be judged in both Sunday dress and in formal evening gowns.

The winner will be expected to appear at various Alabama Farmers Federation general assembly sessions and
Young Farmer events.

The participant will be judged on the following qualifications:

                                              Beauty – 15 points
                                       Poise and Personality – 30 points
                                     Ability to Communicate – 25 points
                      Leadership Experience/School and Community Activities – 30 points
                                               Total – 100 points

No previous state winner of this contest is eligible to compete again. (Employees of the Alabama Farmers
Federation, Alfa and affiliate companies, and their children are not eligible.)

The application is not valid unless signed by the president of your county Farmers Federation.

Awards and Opportunities
