CATEGORIES OF COMPETITION

Each Contestant will compete in three equal phases of preliminary competition: Interview, Swimsuit and Evening Gown 

The results from these preliminary phases of competition are weighted equally,

and the contestants with the highest composite scores become semifinalists.

The number of semifinalists will be determined by the total number of contestants in the competition and is typically 15-20.  

Scoring is based on the following:

INTERVIEW

Pageant judges spend time with each delegate to learn about her successes, talents, goals and ambitions.

 

Attention is focused on her poise, charm, self – confidence and her ability to communicate, as well as the substance of her answers.

 

Preliminary interviews are conducted individually in front of the entire judging panel in a private and closed setting. You will have a two to three-minute interviews with the panel of 5 or 7 judges.

 

It’s very comfortable and conversational. Contestants are judged on their communication skills, and personality. They are NOT judged on their opinions or personal beliefs.

PHYSICAL FITNESS

Swimsuit (MISS)  / Activewear (TEEN):

 

Attention is focused on beauty of the face, figure, physical fitness, stage presence and the confidence with which each contestant carries herself. Numerical measurements are not considered in the judging. There is no perfect body type!

EVENING GOWN

Each contestant wears a gown she has chosen for herself. Attention is focused on each contestant’s overall appearance, self-confidence, and the beauty she brings to the gown of her choice.

 

She is evaluated on grace, poise, style, stage presence, and overall-impression. Judges are instructed to evaluate the contestant, not the dress she is wearing.
