No glitz. Photogenic will have no bearing on the division title. Photogenic winners will receive a trophy.
Fun Fashion: Preteen, Teen and Miss ONLY. Contestants who elect to also compete in Fun Fashion will model a sporty or casual outfit. This division will be judged after the beauty walk and will have no bearing on beauty scores. Winner receives a trophy. Contestants may use props that can be carried and do not make a mess (softball bats, batons, baskets, purses, etc. are totally examples of acceptable props.)
Interview: Preteen, Teen and Miss only will have an onstage interview question. This will be worth 10 points of her score.
Judging: Contestants will be judged on modeling, outfit, poise, beauty and personality (10 points each.)
*Modeling-Diamond formation. Girls may turn at any X, but SHOULD to turn at the front middle X. No routines. Walk and model while letting your personality show.
*Outfit-Pageant dresses or Sunday dresses for girls. Age appropriateness is taken into consideration.
*Poise-Confidence counts. Chin up, shoulders back and take that stage.
*Beauty-All our contestants are beautiful, but too much makeup, fake hair, flippers, fake tans, etc. will lose you points here. Keep it naturally beautiful. Fake eyelashes are permitted but it will be up to the judges to decide if they distract from the contestant's natural beauty.
*Personality-We are looking for someone we will be proud of to represent Vilonia. Let it shine.
*Interview-Pre-Teen, Teen and Miss contestants will also be asked an on stage question for 10 points. A list of the questions is available.
Queens are encouraged to use their title to represent Vilonia in a positive way. Grand openings, community service work, parades, etc. are a great way to showcase your title. Queens are also invited to come back the following year to crown. Queens may not compete the following year after being crowned.
Bad sportsmanship by a contestant, parent, guardian, or fan may result in the contestant being disqualified from the pageant and any future pageants. Judges decisions are final. Admission will be $3 per adult and $1 per student. One adult allowed free with each paid contestant. Armbands must be worn at all times or you may be asked to leave.
