Phases of Competition

INTERVIEW – 35% of the total score

State delegates will have a 5 minute personal interview with a panel of judges.  This is your opportunity to allow the judges to get to know you and convince them you are the best candidate for the job.  Questions will be formulated from the delegate's Fact Sheet, current events, community service, educational goals, and career ambition. A dress or pantsuit appropriate for a tv host interview is recommended.  No pageant dresses.

 

ACADEMICS & PROFESSIONAL RESUME – 15% of the total score

State delegates will be asked to submit a professional resume with their academic and career achievements.  This will be an opportunity for the judges to evaluate a delegate's achievements and career goals.

Note. This review may also be shared with scholarship donors to determine recipients of special college awards.

 

LIFESTYLE & FITNESS IN SWIMWEAR - 25% of the total score

This competition is designed to determine how well the participant maintains a figure that reflects good physical fitness and health. Delegates may choose to wear a one-piece or 2-pc swimsuit. No string or thong bikinis allowed.  

Note.  Inappropriate swimsuits will not be allowed.

 

POISE IN EVENING GOWN - 25% of the total score

This competition is designed for the delegate to make an on-stage statement of her personality. Select a prom or formal dress that is appropriate for your age and personality.  The color and style are your choice. The gown must be floor-length. She will be judged on confidence, elegance and stage presence, not on the specific price of the gown
