How will the contestants be selected? If needed, the contestants will be selected through a two round elimination process.  A panel of judges will first narrow the applicants using the submitted applications. The selected candidates will then participate in a short interview with the panel of judges to select the pageant contestants.

When will the interviews be held? The interviews will be held between May 6 and May 10.  Exact dates will be given once the “round two” candidates are selected.

What categories will I compete in? All contestants will participate in an unjudged opening number.  There will be five judged categories including a judge’s interview, outerwear, formal wear, an onstage question, and a promotion (jingle). All categories will be explained in further detail once contestants have been selected.

How will I know what to do? Once all contestants are selected, we will conduct practices during the week of June 10 as well as rehearsals June 16 and June 17 so all contestants are prepared.  So don’t worry if you have never competed in a pageant! We will teach you everything you need to know.
