Pageant Judging Guidlines
EVENING WEAR – Evening wear is (25%) of your overall score. Every contestant will be individually introduced on stage. Choose a dress that shows off your unique personality. The color and style are your choices. You should feel confident and excited about who you are and whom you were created to be. The contestant should wear a floor-length gown that is age appropriate to her age division (no slits between the ages of 4 through 15). We want each contestant to look like the age division they are competing in. Each contestant will have their moment in the spotlight in the evening gown competition, to show their grace, poise, and elegance.
PERSONAL INTRODUCTION – Personal Introduction is (10%) of your overall score. Contestants will be scored during their interview. The introduction will be presented to the judges once you enter the interview room. The contestant will state her name, hometown and tell us a little bit about herself. The introduction should be no more than 45 seconds.
CASUAL WEAR – Casual Wear is (25%) of your overall score. Contestants will model age-appropriate attire that has a casual, tailored look. The outfit should be something that you would buy off the rack at a department store. The contestant will be modeling to upbeat and fun music. It will be the contestant time to turn on the runway as a model and amaze the audience with her personal style.
INTERVIEW – Interview is (40%) of your overall score. The interview will be a conversation in which the interviewer is getting to know you. They will observe your communication skills, and, depending on the setting, learn more about your goals, interests, and community service activities. The younger contestants (Princess and Sweetheart) will have a two (2) minutes interview. The remaining contestants (Preteen and above) will have a three (3) minute, "Panel Style" interview. Interviews will be hosted in a friendly, job interview format. Questions may or may not be based on your personal introduction. No political or religion questions are asked. Contestants should wear an interview dress or suit that reflects their own unique personality.
Same requirements as Queen's title requirements above. There will be an Ambassador chosen in each division. This will be the contestant in that age division with the highest score based on the requirements above AFTER the Queen has been chosen. The Ambassador is chosen from the young ladies who have entered the Ambassador competition and paid the additional fee. If you win the Queens title, your name will be pulled from the Ambassador competition.
**** No Makeup allowed on Princess and Sweetheart Divisions ****
**** Pre-Teen makeup must be a Natural Look ****
