VALENTINE PAGEANT RULES AND COMPETITION INFORMATION:
Southern Grace Pageants is a natural pageant system.
Presentation, stage presence and personality are important factors.
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.
We do NOT allow clip on hair extensions or hair pieces.
Make-up is not allowed for ages 0-2. This includes no powder and no lip gloss. Fake eye lashes, tanning and flippers are NOT allowed.
All walks need to be under 75 seconds. Babydoll style dresses should be worn for ages 0-2 with white pageant shoes and white socks. Stones are allowed. National 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 0-2 only.

Judges will judge on overall first impression, appearance, stage presence and personality.

Photogenic – Photos are due February 12th.
There will 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
People’s Choice Queens and Runners-up:
There will be one People’s Choice Queen awarded to the contestant who obtains the most votes from her fans. We will also award a 1st and 2nd Runner-up for People's Choice. Each vote is $1. Bring all votes to check-in the day of the pageant.
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. 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.
Contestants will be allowed ONLY one chaperone in the dressing area and backstage. Siblings and friends will need to wait in the lobby or ballroom.
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
The pageant is a ballroom with a riser stage. Someone will be backstage to assist contestants onstage. The Xs are set up in a front T shape. They will come on from the left if looking at the stage and exit right. They will finish in the middle X up front. 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.
A complete final schedule with times will be emailed to contestants closer to the pageant date.
Order of Competition: Formal Wear, Valentine’s OOC, Awards.
Wear OOC for awards.
We will crown by supreme breakdown. Contestants will not wait for older groups to finish before they receive their awards.
