Judging Criteria

Judging is based on stage presence, personality, overall appearance, eye contact, and smile.

We are looking for a well-rounded, beautiful contestant who is well poised and who has a great personality.

Grand Supreme: In order for a contestant to be eligible for the title of Grand Supreme, they must be registered for Beauty and ALL Optionals. There will be one Grand Supreme winner for the 0-9 age division and one for the 10-21 age division. The contestant with the highest cumulative score will be crowned Grand Supreme.

Makeup Guidelines: No flippers or false hair pieces will be allowed.The Director and staff have the right to ask and randomly check for flippers (false teeth) or falls and wiglets (fake hair pieces). Points will be deducted accordingly.

Clothing Guidelines: Have fun and make sure, when choosing your dress: remember that the girl needs to wear the dress. You don't want the dress to wear the girl.

Photogenic Guidelines: Bring your best photo to the registration table on the day of the pageant. Photos can be any size, but no larger then 8x10. Photos can be snapshots or professional. Collages and/or comp cards will not be accepted. No refunds will be given if suitable photos are not turned in at the registration table before the pageant begins. Photos can be picked up at the registration table at the end of the pageant. All photos are judged on facial beauty, first impression, and overall appearance.  

Our scoring system is based on non-comparison judging and is made up of the following scoring brackets:

1-3: Needs Improvement, was not prepared, possible attire change needed
4-6: Needs a Little More Practice, possible minor changes in attire needed, stage presence needs work
7-9: Little to No Improvement Needed, great stage presence and personality, well prepared, appropriate and well-fitting attire
10: Perfect, no suggestions for changes

Contestants receive the scores they deserve based on the above criteria. In the case of a tie, the facial beauty score is used to determine the outcome. If needed, the photogenic score will be used as well. There will be no ties for the Queen Title. Grand Supreme winners are determined by the contestant who has the highest total score (beauty and ALL optionals). There will be 1 Grand Supreme for 0-9 years and 1 Grand Supreme for 10-21 years.

Judges decisions will be accepted as official and final.
