December 29, 2021: Auburn-Opelika, AL – The Miss Alabama USA and Miss Alabama Teen USA pageants will crown this year’s winners in Auburn at the beginning of the year. The long-running tradition will be held on January 14-15, 2022 at Auburn University’s Jay and Susie Gogue Performing Arts Center.

Over 80 contestants from all over the state of Alabama will compete in interview, evening gown and swimsuit/active wear competitions. These contestants will be vying for thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes and the ability to travel the state promoting the pageant and its charitable alliances. The Miss Alabama Teen USA pageant will feature contestants between the ages of 14-18; the Miss Alabama USA pageant will feature contestants between the ages of 18-27. The preliminary competition will be held on Friday evening, followed by the final competition on Saturday evening.

The January event is an official state preliminary to the MISS USA® and MISS TEEN USA® pageants, sponsored by the Miss Universe Organization. The winners of the Miss Alabama USA and Miss Alabama Teen USA pageants will go on to represent Alabama and compete for the MISS USA and MISS TEEN USA titles in 2022.

Samantha Sims, a senior at Auburn University, will be competing as Miss Auburn-Opelika USA. Sims says she is honored to represent the Auburn-Opelika community.

“I feel blessed to compete for the crown right here in our backyard at the beautiful Gogue Performing Arts Center,” Sims said. “This will be such a wonderful weekend as girls come from all over the state of Alabama to our community.”

In the past, the panel of judges for the pageants have included celebrities like Austen Kroll, star of Bravo TV’s “Southern Charm;” Dr. Bill Dorfman from ABC’s “Extreme Makeover;” and Cammy Miller, owner of popular clothing store Show Me Your MuMu.
