While our program places an emphasis on excellence, achievement, and personal growth, we also strive to make the pageant experience FUN! The pageant is a four day event, and will be held August 2 – 5, 2017.
Here are just some of the highlights that will take place. On the first day, it's fun, fun, and more fun! The contestants enjoy meeting with city officials and other VIPs, as well as take time getting to know the pageant staff and other contestants. You will enjoy a fashion photo shoot and meet our choreographer and show producer. You will begin rehearsals for the first of our fabulous shows. The second day starts off with more rehearsals. Tonight is the parade of National Costumes and Optional Show. The third day each contestant has the opportunity to meet individually with each judge for a four minute interview. Each contestant has the opportunity to convince the judges she is right for the job.
The second show of the event is the Presentation Show. During the Presentation Show, each contestant is presented to the judges in the preliminary resort wear, swim wear and gown competitions. Following the Presentation Show our contestants are able to relax and close out the night at our contestant party! You guessed it; the fourth day begins with the final rehearsal. This evening is the final competition. At the end of the final show, we will have our new Miss American Teenager Queens.
