The USS ALABAMA Crewmate Program was founded in 1967 as an ambassador effort for the then newly created USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park.  The Crewmates volunteer their time at events promoting Battleship Memorial Park, the City of Mobile and State of Alabama.

The program, now in its 53rd year, has offered more than 300 young ladies an opportunity to represent Battleship Memorial Park and our community.  The USS ALABAMA Crewmates have dedicated thousands of community service hours not only to Battleship Memorial Park, but also to Mobile County, Baldwin County, and the State of Alabama.

The contest, held yearly, is based upon an application and interview process.  Outside judges select the USS ALABAMA Crewmates based on poise, personality, intellect, community involvement and interest in Battleship Memorial Park.  Each year, $13,500.00 in scholarship money is awarded to the young women selected as USS ALABAMA Crewmates.

To qualify, young ladies must be between the ages of 19-21, reside in Mobile or Baldwin County, and, if selected, remain residents for the duration of their term.
