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. You will have a panel type interview that will last about 5 minutes.
During this competition, you will showcase your ability to speak effectively using a microphone and confidently and professionally present yourself. Public Speaking is a skill admired by all. Contestants will introduce themselves, saying their: name, hometown, state, and where they see themselves in the future and/or something interesting about themselves. Introductions should not exceed 45 seconds.
All delegates must wear a floor length gown that is age appropriate for the formal wear/evening gown competition. Your gown must fit you properly (think as if the dress was made for you). Contestants are judged on grace, poise/ posture and overall presentation. You must follow the modeling pattern we provide for you, and there will be no escorting on stage unless medically needed.
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!
The Community Service Project counts for 10% of your required competition score in the overall pageant. A full 10% of your pageant score will be automatically awarded to you when you show record of having completed 4 hours of community service at a local, area, or statewide service organization. We will provide you with the form you must complete for this required competition.
