PHASES OF COMPETITION

INTERVIEW – 35%

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%

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%

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%

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. You will be judged on confidence, elegance  and stage presence, not on the specific price of the gown.
