BEFORE PAGEANT FAQs

RUNWAY BOOTCAMP

As part of the entry fee for the optional Runway Modeling competition, you get access to the Runway Bootcamp.  I am excited to announce that the Runway Bootcamp will be taught by working fashion model Maria Montgomery.  Maria was Miss Kentucky USA and was runner-up at the Miss USA pageant. She has modeled for Express, Olay, Covergirl, Pantene, Remington Hair Products,  Kohls, Jockey, Disney, and Nike just to name a few.  At the BootCamp, you will learn the walking pattern, modeling techniques, turns, poses, and more!  The Bookcamp will last about an hour. 

If you want to add the Runway Modeling competition and get access to the Bootcamp, you may add it at your pageant check-in.

TICKETS

Tickets are only needed for the pageant finale.  All the other events are free for the audience to attend. The most common question we get about tickets is in reference to escorts. Remember, we do not use escorts during the pageant finale. So if you escort from the night before will be attending the finale, they will need a ticket too.
