2023 Updates to Miss America Categories and Scoring

The Miss America phases of competition and scoring for the upcoming State competition has been released. This will be used for both Miss and Teen.

▪️Interview is now more important than ever. There will be in introduction where you can pitch your service initiative. (No update on if there is still a closing statement). Keep this in mind, as it may impact total interview time.
▪️Talent is being scored as a performance. This tells me less emphasis on technical skill and more focus on entertainment. The official name seems to be Performance Talent/HERstory, which is supposed to expand the monologue and spoken word option and allow ladies more speaking options.
▪️ Health and Fitness will not have a routine. It will be walking patterns. This takes me back to the Lifestyle and Fitness in swimsuit era.
▪️The Onstage Question will be replaced with Onstage Conversation, and May not be in evening gown (to be determined)

✨What do you think about the changes?
