MINI NATIONAL PAGEANT RULES AND COMPETITION INFORMATION:


Southern Grace Pageants is a natural pageant system. 


Presentation, stage presence and personality are important factors. 


The contestants should look age appropriate.


Contestant Line-up:

Line-up in each age division will be determined by the date your entry form and deposit or payments are received. First entry form with deposit received will be last contestant in line-up or your choice.


Hair:

Permanent hair extensions are allowed, as we can not ask a contestant to take those out. We do NOT allow clip on hair extensions or hair pieces for any age. A contestant will not be disqualified, however 1/10 of a point will be deducted from each judge on the appearance score from all stage events.


Make-up:

Make-up is not allowed for ages 0-4. A contestant will not be disqualified, however 1/10 of a point will be deducted from each judge on the appearance score from all stage events. We will be checking backstage before each event. Ages 5-12 may wear natural pageant make-up: light blush, mascara, eye shadow, lip gloss, etc. 


What’s NOT allowed: 

Fake eye lashes, tanning and flippers are NOT allowed ANY age. A contestant will not be disqualified, however 1/10 of a point will be deducted from each judge on the appearance score from all stage events. We will be checking backstage before each event.


Formal Wear:

All walks need to be under 75 seconds. Babydoll style dresses should be worn for ages 0-4 with white pageant shoes and white socks. Ages 5-12 need long pageant dresses, no two piece. Stones are allowed. Glitz cupcake dresses are not allowed. Formal walks need to be natural. No pro-am modeling is allowed; however, some poses and “cute faces” are okay for ages 0-4 only.


Formal Wear is worth 1/2 of final score when determining Grand Supreme and Mini Supreme Titles. Formal Wear is worth 100% of final score when determining Division Supreme and Division Queen. Judges will judge on overall first impression, appearance, stage presence and personality.


Easter/Spring Wear:

All walks need to be under 75 seconds. Outfits may be custom made or off the rack but must include one piece of clothing that represents the Easter/Spring theme. Wear something that fits their personality. No swimsuits, no stomachs showing. Music is provided by SGP staff. Contestants may do “cute faces” for years 0-4 only. Natural modeling is allowed. No pro-am modeling. Stage props are not allowed. You can have a hand held prop.

It is worth 1/2 of final score when determining Grand Supreme and Mini Supreme Titles. It is also counted as 100% for the Easter Wear Supreme Title.Judges will judge on overall first impression, appearance, stage presence and personality


Photogenic – Photos are due March 11th.

There will be a Photogenic Supreme Winner per supreme breakdown. This is pulled after Easter Supreme but before Division Supreme titles. It CANNOT be double crowned. Everyone is eligible. (If a contestant wins division photogenic, this does not automatically mean she has won Photogenic Supreme. She could have pulled for a higher title.)There will also be one winner per age division for photogenic awards. Photogenic photos need to be emailed to Melinda Bell as a jpeg and as an attachment only. High resolution photos only sent from a computer. Do not forward from your phone or use snapshots. Email to: mbell@sgpageants.com.Photos may be naturally retouched but must still look like the contestant. No glitz photos. Photos will be scored by a different set of judges than pageant day judges. Either color or black & white photos are acceptable. Please include contestant’s name and age division in your email. Judges will be looking for clarity, quality, and personality. Photos will only count for photogenic division awards.


Portfolio:

The winner per age division will receive a medal. Portfolios are collections of professional photographs. Your portfolio should have three or more pictures, which must be placed in a portfolio book. These are not scored. The portfolio winners are chosen by a panel of judges. Bring the portfolio to registration.


Overall Awards:

There will be an Overall Personality, Overall Most Beautiful, Overall Best Dress, and Overall Best Easter/Spring Wear per supreme breakdown. The Overall Easter/Spring wear is judged on the outfit during that category only. The other overall awards are judged during group line-ups in Formal Wear.

 

Mini Nationals People’s Choice Queens: 

There will be one People’s Choice Queen per supreme breakdown awarded to the contestant who obtains the most votes from her fans. Each vote is $1. Bring all votes to check-in the day of the pageant.


Judging:

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 awards. If you see a judge outside of the ballroom, just say hi. Any lengthy conversation is unfair to the other contestants and not allowed.


Dressing Rooms/Backstage:

Contestants will be allowed ONLY one chaperone in the dressing area and backstage. Siblings and friends will need to wait in the lobby or auditorium. We ask that you bring your pageant wardrobe to the dressing room only at your allotted times.


Photography:

No cameras, cell phones, or other devices used as cameras allowed in the ballroom. Video is allowed of your daughter only.


Southern Grace Staff is not responsible for any items left or stolen at the pageant venue. Please leave valuables at home. 


Most importantly, every contestant is a winner. We expect everyone to respect each other and refrain from any negative remarks. Any concerns or questions need to be addressed to the pageant staff only.


STAGE SET-UP AND SCHEDULE (see photo at bottom of page)


Stage Set-up:

The pageant is a ballroom with a wood, riser stage. Someone will be backstage to assist contestants onstage. Contestants can go to numbers 3 or 4 in any order. Ex: Go from number 2 to number 3 or from number 2 to number 4. They will finish in the middle X as number 5. They will not finish at the back of the stage.


• Contestants will have 75 seconds per stage event. Once they hit 75 seconds, they will be called off stage. It is a good idea to practice before the pageant, so that the young contestants understand when they are being called onto the stage and off stage.


• Judges understand that the contestants are young and the girls will not be counted off for exiting on the wrong side, but we do encourage parents who are on stage with their child, to walk off the correct side.
