PHASE 3 EVENING GOWN
During the Evening Gown category, the judges will pay close attention to the contestants overall appearance, grace, stage presence, poise and confidence in addition to the sophistication and elegance she brings to the dress. The contestants will wear a gown she has chosen for herself. All gowns must be age appropriate and tasteful.
PHASE 4 TIME TO SHINE...
In this portion of the pageant, the finalist will be given a question by the host, where they will have the opportunity to answer individually. The finalist will be judged upon her ability to think quick with confidence and articulation. The scores will then be tallied for all categories based on how each individual scores throughout the competition.
