Scoring and Judging

The judging system is designed to promote diversity, individuality and overall achievement among all contestants. Judges will score the individual contestant immediately following each phase of the competition. Contestants are scored on a full point scale within each category. All judges have been educated on the judging system and represent a variety of professional sectors within their communities.

Private Interview (50% of total score)
Each contestant will participate in an individual 6-minute interview with a panel of at least three judges. Questions will come from a variety of areas, including but not limited to the contestants fact sheet.

The contestant’s wardrobe should be age appropriate -- a nice pair of slacks, a skirt with a top or a dress -- something that makes you feel comfortable and confident.

Criteria for scoring: first impression, personality, intelligence, articulation, confidence, charisma and poise.

Poise and Confidence in Party Dress (25% of total score)
During the pageant, each contestant will walk on stage in a party dress of their choice. The dress itself is not judged. We encourage a simple party dress that shows YOU off.

Judges will be looking for poise, confidence, posture, and stage presence.

On-Stage Question (25% of total score)
Each contestant will be asked a question while on stage. Questions will be age appropriate.

The contestant is judged on how well she handles the pressure of speaking on stage in front of an audience.
