Our Competition History & Mission

​An Official Scholarship Preliminary to the Miss Alabama & Miss America Competitions

The Miss Birmingham Competition was renewed as an official scholarship preliminary to the Miss Alabama and Miss America Competitions in 2006.  In 2009, Miss Birmingham's Outstanding Teen was added as an official preliminary to the Miss Alabama's Outstanding Teen Competition.  In 2010, the Miss Heart of Dixie title was added, which changed to Miss Cahaba Valley in 2013.  At that time, we added Miss Cahaba Valley's Outstanding Teen and we officially became The Miss Birmingham & Miss Cahaba Valley Scholarship Organization.


We are now proud to crown four young women each year - along with their Rising Stars - who represent the Birmingham and Cahaba Valley areas in our state competitions each year:

Miss Birmingham

Miss Birmingham's Outstanding Teen

Miss Cahaba Valley

Miss Cahaba Valley's Outstanding Teen


Our Mission is to empower young women to strive for excellence when pursuing personal and professional goals, to develop invaluable life skills that will be used throughout her lifetime, to develop and maintain lasting connections and friendships, and to make a difference in her community, her state, and her nation.
