COMPETITION GUIDELINES

GENERAL
Talent performances cannot exceed 2 minutes. If the performance exceeds 2 minutes, the judges will be
notified and the score given will be adjusted accordingly. Only functional props may be used. No live
accompaniment is allowed. If the contestant is lip syncing, the judges must be notified.
SCORING IN TALENT
The Talent phase of competition provides an insight into the contestant’s preparatory and performance
skills. Consideration is given to whether the contestant’s talent selection fits these skills and her
personality. The Talent competition acknowledges the quality of the talent being presented, the technical
skill level, and the stage presence of the contestant. Each contestant is competing against herself and
MUST receive a score in a 1 to 10 point range, using whole numbers only. More than one contestant may
receive the same score. High and low scores are discarded.

nature and may be a dress, slacks or jeans with a nice top or a skirt or other outfit that she might wear to a

high end boutique in the mall, or a similar job. Traditional pageant interview suits are discouraged.

accomplishment, poise, and presence as well as her ability to fulfill the job responsibilities of the position

The Evening Wear phase of competition is designed for the judge to assess the contestant’s beauty, poise,

total look is considered. Her evening wear (not the value of the evening wear) should complement the
contestant’s individuality.

and pageant committee. Questions will be of a general nature, and will be neither platform related nor
taken from the interview. The objective is to evaluate the contestant on how well she can “think on her
feet” and how she handles the pressure of speaking before and audience.
SCORING IN ON-STAGE QUESTION(S)
The On-Stage Question phase of competition is designed for the contestant to make an on-stage statement
of her interests, opinions and aspirations. One question will be asked and the judge is to only consider the

to her?
