The Miss Alabama USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Alabama in the Miss USA pageant.
Alabama is one of the more successful and (recently) consistent states at Miss USA. Although they have had a number of runners-up, finalists and semi-finalists, they have only had one Miss USA. Even more successfully, Sylvia Hitchcock, Miss USA 1967, went on to win the Miss Universe title. Two Miss Alabama USA titleholders have placed first runner-up to winners from California: Candace Michelle Brown was first runner-up to Shannon Marketic in 1992, and Pamela Flowers was first runner-up to Summer Bartholomew in 1975.
Three Miss Alabama USA titleholders were former Miss Alabama Teen USAs. Of these three, two placed better in the Miss competition than they did as teens.
