Welcome to the Miss Camellia Pageant

The current Miss Camellia Pageant journey began in September of 2016, when Marissa Kilpatrick was appointed Miss Camellia 2017. Miss Camellia 2018 is Loni Blatz of Andalusia. Loni is currently in her second semester at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia. In December 2017, we crowned our first Miss Camellia’s Outstanding Teen, Samantha Hennings.

Miss Camellia was reinstated as an official preliminary to Miss Alabama in 2016. As a local preliminary in the Miss America Organization, Miss Camellia is part of the largest scholarship resource for young women in the world. Miss Camellia is a first step to reaching the Miss America stage.

Miss Camellia is not merely a beauty pageant; this event offers young women the opportunity to further educational goals through scholarships and personal growth. Contestants gain valuable experience and opportunities to enhance interviewing skills, talent, poise, and confidence.

Since the Miss Camellia Pageant is a non-profit organization, the only way this event is successful is a lot of hard work and dedication from multiple volunteers and amazing sponsors, who all want to assist in helping young ladies reach their future goals. Being a non-profit also means that money has to be raised for every aspect of this endeavor, from the scholarships and awards, right down to the paper on which the programs are printed. Miss Camellia is a labor of love and we are proud to share it with you all.
