Judging Criteria

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

We are looking for a naturally beautiful contestant who is well poised and who has 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 0-6 age division and one for the 7-21 age division. The contestant with the highest cumulative score will be crowned Grand Supreme.

Makeup Guidelines: Girls ages 0-8 do not wear makeup. Girls age 9-12 may only wear simple makeup such as light foundation, light powder, light blush, lip gloss, & mascara. Young ladies ages 13-21 can wear appropriate makeup while still allowing their natural beauty shine through. Dark (dark blues, brown, greens, black) eye shadow or heavy/dark red lipstick are not permitted. Please no fake anything unless medically necessary. The Director and staff have the right to ask and randomly check for flippers (false teeth), falls and wiglets (fake hair pieces), and fake nails and lashes. Points will be deducted accordingly.

Clothing Guidelines: Designer and/or custom dresses are not necessary in order to compete in the Miss Forsythia Pageant. Sunday, party, flower girl, or pageant dresses are fine for the younger ones. Preteens and older can wear ball gowns, prom, or pageant dresses. Custom dresses are acceptable as long as the dress is age appropriate. There are no restrictions on stones. Rhinestones and crystal jewelry may be worn as long as it doesn't outshine the girl. When choosing your dress - make sure you 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. Natural, untouched photos are preferred for those who are competing in the optional photogenic category. 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 0-6 years and 1 Grand Supreme for 7-21 years.
