Do I have to live in the state to compete?
Yes. You must compete in the state you currently reside in. If there is no state pageant in your state and you have residential ties to another state that does have a pageant, you can compete in that state.
Can I represent my state at large?
In some cases. If you live in a state that holds a state pageant you may not compete at large, however if your state does not have a state pageant, you may compete at large representing a state you have residential ties in.
Why does the application form ask if I have been married or have kids?
We have multiple divisions, some allow for married women to compete, some even allow for women with children to compete. Our North America divisions are based on age, rather than marital status!
May I seek a sponsor?
You may seek sponsors or you may pay the entry fee yourself.
If I am unable to compete, will I be issued a refund or a credit?
No. Due to extremely high production costs, we are not able to return any payments. All fees paid are NOT REFUNDABLE and NOT TRANSFERABLE in full or in part for under any circumstances. This includes entry fees, advertising fees, pageant admission tickets and any other fees paid.
Am I required to sell ads for the program book?
No. Most state pageants do not have program books, so no ad pages are required!
If I hold an North America Beauty Pageant title, can I compete in other systems?
We only ask that the state and regional titleholders compete in the Final Event before they compete for other titles, and they come back and crown their successor if a pageant is held.
Do all delegates receive a crown and sash?
No. However, each delegate may opt to purchase a local title sash and crown, which are available on a first come first serve basis.
