INTERVIEW

ALL AGE DIVISIONS

REQUIRED OVERALL COMPETITION

30% OF YOUR OVERALL SCORE

format

This is a closed competition, which means no audience is allowed in the interview room. You will wear a professional outfit of your choosing. Questions asked will not have right or wrong answers. You know all the answers because all the questions are about you and your personal experiences.

Your resume form will be provided around 1 week before the pageant, which you will complete and turn in at Pageant Check-In. We will give it to each girl before she heads into her interview.

 

You will meet with approximately 5 or 6 judges individually. First, you will carry your resume into the room and walk to the first judge at table #1. You will sit down, hand your resume to the judge and he/she will ask you an open-ended question. Your interview with that judge ends when the bell rings.

 

The judge will return your resume to you, and you will move to table #2 to repeat the process. After interviewing with the last judge, you will exit the room with your resume.
