INTERVIEW

The Interview Competition is a great time to let the judges know why they should pick you as the next National Queen. Our judges are friendly and are ready to have a conversation with each contestant. There are no political, religious or text book questions. The judges just want to get to know who you are. Contestants should wear a dress, fitted suit, or jumpsuit for this competition. For our virtual platform we will have a "panel" type interview via virtual video call platform that will last about 5 minutes.

RÉSUMÉ

Résumés used at the national pageant must be prepared from the template provided to you and must follow the guidelines shown on the template. Ideally, preparing a résumé is not a one-time thing. A résumé is something that you will want to have in a file, on your computer at home, and continue to build and nurture over the years. If you already have been cultivating a resume, that’s great! If you do not yet have one, then it is never too early to start, no matter what your age!
