Contestants can move up in an age division but are encouraged to participate with their age group. In the event that an age group needs to be divided or combined with another, it will be done at the director’s discretion. If an age division has been split once it will not be split again.
Ex: Ages 3-4 was split to 3 yrs and 4 yrs. If the 3 yrs group hits 10 contestants again it will stay one group.
Line-up in each age division will be determined by the date your entry form and deposit or payment is received. First entry form received will be last contestant in line-up or your choice.
Contestants may wear a Sunday Dress or a Formal Pageant Dress.
Outfits can be custom made or off the rack. No glitz stones. Also NO mid-drifts showing and NO swim suits. Music is provided unless otherwise stated. No pro-am modeling. 1/2 a point from the score will be taken off for showing your
mid-drift. Stage props are not allowed. You can have a hand held prop.
Our judges will be judging on personality, stage presence, self-confidence, first impression, and overall appearance for Formal Wear. We do not judge on facial beauty. We believe every contestant is beautiful and we want to see the girls just have fun. Even though we tell our judges what our pageant system judges on, judges all have opinions and you are being judged on their opinion your score will be a combination of their opinions. There will be out-of-town judges. Judges’ score sheets will be given to contestants following crowning. Optional categories will in no way affect scoring of the Formal Wear portion of the competition.
Ages 0-4 no make-up
Ages 5-12 light make-up is acceptable (ex: mascara, lipgloss, powder) Ages 13-21 may wear full make-up or light make-up
For all ages, we ask that contestants do not have fake eye lashes, hair pieces (fake hair), spray tans or flippers. 1/2 a point from the score will be taken off if a judge sees make-up on ladies 4 and under and if she is wearing hair pieces or has a spray tan.
Full payment must be sent by the pageant deadline date. If a contestant does not pay in full by this date, she will be removed from her group line-up.
The highest fees off won during a preliminary, state or photo contest will be counted towards finals. Ex: If you were a runner-up and a queen from two different pageants, you will receive the queen’s fees off.
