More Questions From Contestants...

Posted by Manda on August 1, 2012 at 7:25 PM


Are there seminars, information sessions, or a way that I can attend an actual pageant?


We do have an absolutely free of charge informational session coming up for anyone who registers for the pageant. It's a workshop that will focus on modeling, outfit choices, and answering any questions you may have. It is August 8 & 9 (2 1/2 hours each day) and FREE for anyone who signs up for the pageant. Otherwise, it is a $25 fee per day. We also offer pageant coaching services at the rate of $20 per hour. For those interested in attending a pageant before signing up, we charge a fee of $5 per door badge for anyone walking through the door who is not a registered contestant. This money will go directly to local charity and is not negotiable. If you've not paid it with your paypal fees, you will need to pay in CASH before being allowed into the facility.




Can you give me an idea as to what type of dresses are acceptable for the formal and modeling?


As a semi-glitz system, we offer the best of both worlds to our contestants. We expect each of them to be dressed to the nines, but the actual things being scored are the overall appearance of the contestant (including fit of the garment,) the confidence of the contestant, eye contact with the judges, and how much fun the contestant is having on stage. That said, please feel free to model any style dress of your choice, from baby doll, cupcake style, Sunday best, or formal gown. We want to see our contestants modeling something that they are comfortable in and something that they love. That will provide for the best scores.




Are you planning on using their top scores from three events for Supreme/Novice titles or do they have to enter all the categories for the supreme titles?


All Supreme titles, including Grand, Mini-Grand, Novice, and Novice Newbie are based upon the three categories chosen for the desired pageant. One category will remain the same to be figured in for EVERY pageant and that is the formal wear competition. The remaining two will be categories that are applicable to each particular pageant and will be fun and sassy choices. For the upcoming Summer Splash pageant, the categories taken into account for our grands are Formal, Summer Fun, and Top Model.




What is expected for the Top Model competition?


Our top model competition is similar to a regular outfit of choice (or OOC). For example, contestants can choose a hobby that they have, an activity that they enjoy, a themed costume that they absolutely love, or anything else that their heart desires. The rules for this competition are the same as for the others; no high-end pro-am modeling (i.e., flips, handsprings), no harmful props, no inappropriate costumes or music choices, etc. We want to see our top Models rockin' that stage to the best of their ability, but we always want to keep safety in mind. So please abide by the above rules and plan to bring your best competition to the stage. While not a requirement, some examples of "wowing" moves would be big arm movements, snappy gestures, cartwheels, russians, or splits. To perform more difficult movements, contestants should be well-practiced and comfortable with the moves.




Is the Ambassador Supreme title double crownable?


Yes! This is actually one of the only titles that is double crownable. We want to see a winner for this great title, which is based upon money raised to donate to local charity. Anyone interested in participating is asked to raise at least $25 to be eligible for this title. However, if anyone collects money and does not raise the required amount, they do still need to turn the money in, since it was collected on behalf of another organization. All moneys collected will go directly to charity. Also, the recipient of this prestigious title will be asked back to join us at future pageants to help represent and crown. They will hold this title for the remainder of the pageant year, but are able to participate and compete as well. As we participate at local community events and in parades, title holders will be invited to join us.


How much time do I have on stage?


Contestants will have up to a minute on stage for each area of competition except for talent, which allows for 2-2 1/2 minutes on stage. The emcee will announce each contestant as they are expected to come on stage, will announce information as according to the registration form, and will then instruct the contestants to when they are to exit the stage. We suggest that contestants remain on stage as long as possible, without lingering or looking uncomfortable.




Do I need to provide my own music?


No, you do not need to provide your own music. We will be providing upbeat, fun music for all of our contestants. You are, however, more than welcome to bring your own if you choose. If you do decide that you'd like to bring music for yourself of your child, please make sure that it is appropriate in all contexts. No inappropriate topic matter or language is allowed, so we suggest that you check this ahead of time. If you would like to use something that needs to be edited, it is your own responsibility to do so and then to ensure that it still works properly. If any improper language comes up while a contestant is on stage the song will be immediately stopped, the contestant will be asked to leave the stage, and they will receive a "0" in that particular competition.




Are props allowed/encouraged?


While we are not into the high-end, "fake" requirements that some higher glitz pageants utilize, we do still tend to live by the motto "Go BIG...or go home!" lol. We want to see our contestants bring it, so YES props are always encouraged. Each contestant will have up to a minute and a half to set up any props before their turn on stage, so this allows for a great setup if time is utilized properly. We welcome backdrops, stand-alone props, or handheld props. Virtually, anything goes...within reason. Some of the exceptions to our "anything goes" policy are fire, water, weaponry (either real or fake), and anything that could be dangerous to the contestants, audience members, or staff.




Will you have a photographer there or can we take our own photos?


We will offer both options at our fun pageants. Our goal is to keep this affordable, fun, and safe for all of our contestants, so please plan to abide by our rules regarding photographs at the pageant. We will have photographer passes available for $5, which will coordinate with your child's contestant tag. This will allow our staff to ensure that parents are photographing their own children; if you would like a picture of someone else's child/outfit, please ask them. The second option is a professional disk that will be available for just $35 and will include photos of all areas of competition that your child participates in. These will be be delivered via postal mail within 2 1/2 weeks after the pageant. Please plan to purchase one of these options at registration if you plan on taking photos.

Yes, all children participating in the pageant receive a crown. The size of the crown depends on the overall placement within the event. Our Grand Supreme has the largest crown, followed by our Mini-Grands and Novice titles, then age division queens/kings, and finally division princesses/princes.

Are there cash prizes awarded?
Reply Manda
7:03 PM on August 4, 2012 
No. Due to our low entry fees and our great prizes we are not offering cash awards for this particular pageant. We do have some in the works that will have cash prizes, but as you would expect, the price will be increased.

will there be a place for the girls to change and if so will there be outlets in the room?
Reply Manda
2:56 PM on August 6, 2012 
You bet! We own the building that the pageant will be hosted in, so the children will get to change in our fitting rooms, which are curtained off. This is a separate area set back from where the pageant will be taking place.

Yes, you will most certainly get their scores. They will be mailed out after the pageant. Parents interested in receiving them should provide a self-addressed stamped envelope before they depart the day of the pageant.

Will you be giving out the age division counts before the pageant? And are you planning on combining age divisions?
Reply Manda
10:57 PM on August 12, 2012 
We are not going to be combining any age divisions at this pageant, unless the parents request it. Your granddaughter's division has two and your daughter's has only one, although we will be allowing mom entries at the door, if anyone would like to participate. All divisions have 2-3 contestants, but for the 8-10 year division, which has only one.

Thank you so much!! So much information! Could you please email me where and how I can get a glitz or beautify dress and other costumes for my daughter? And how do I go about ordering her a flipper? My daughter wants to participate in the bigger more glamorous pageants. So we want to get all we might need for a pageant weekend. My email is jenorham@hotmail.com and thank you again for the information. I'm a grateful!

Hi Jennifer! We do not use a flipper, so I cannot help you in that department. We're actually on the lower end of the glitz scale. If your daughter is looking for some practice, we've got a pageant coming up on June 16th and we've currently got very low numbers. I can get you the link to sign up and also some get suggestions on outfits and we can go from there. If you attend our pageant, we can chat afterward about some of the experience I have as a pageant mom, as well. :)

Hi Brooke! The Summer Splash Pageant will be held in Onalaska, Wisconsin at a local park. It will start at 11am after registration and crowning will be a few hours later. For Hollywood Wear, she could wear something that represents a famous movie star or simply wear something that screams "Hollywood" in itself. I hope that answers your questions! Btw, did you see our "Dirt Cheap" pageant that we've got coming up in a couple of weeks? Entry starts at just $10 a category... Great deal right there! ;)
