The Interview Competition is panel style and a great time to let the judges know why they should pick you as our Queen. There are no political, religious or text book questions. The judges just want to get to know who you are!  Contestants should wear business attire.

On-Stage Q&A

Contestants will have 30 seconds to answer a random question while on stage.

Fashion Wear 

Each contestant will model an outfit of her own choosing. It must be age appropriate, and it should portray the contestant’s personal sense of style and fashion. Denim jeans  are not permitted. Choose an outfit that you would wear to a Red Carpet Event.

Evening Gown

All delegates must wear a floor length gown that is age appropriate for the formal wear/evening gown competition.  Contestants are judged on grace, poise and overall presentation.
