The most frequently presented MISS ALEXLAS AWARDS are for preliminary talent and swimsuit. The Talent award was introduced in Year 26, and Swimsuit in Year 29. In the Year 30's preliminary awards for evening gown and interview were briefly introduced, but were only presented for two years after it was decided that it made the semi-finalists too predictable.

Other awards include Miss Congeniality, given out in the early years of the pageant and re-introduced at Miss Alexlas Year 45, and the Quality of Life award for a contestant's platform, first awarded in Year 34.
