National Pageant Wardrobe Requirements

Get Acquainted Party:

TBD – Coming Soon

State Introduction Outfit:

During the official State Introductions, each Candidate will be required to provide a 30 second speech on a famous individual from her state. The attire should resemble the famous person. For example, a candidate giving a speech on Amelia Earhart could wear aviation attire. This is not a judged event but it will be the first presentation of you publicly, so have fun with it!

Dress, suit, or skirt and blouse that you would wear to a job interview or an important daytime occasion. Don’t forget to show a bit of your own personality but limit your accessories. Candidates competing for Little Miss (ages 7-9) and Young Miss (ages 10-12) should not wear makeup.

Personality Projection & Poise:

Your formal gown should be floor length. It can be any color or style. The most important consideration is that it is age-appropriate. You can absolutely wear the same gown you wore in another pageant. Please remember that the judges are not looking for a dress but a confident young lady.
