Do I have to compete in the Online Pageant to Participate at Nationals?

No. Contestants do not have to participate in the online contest to qualify to compete at internationals, they can opt to go straight to the international pageant by paying the appropriate Entry Fees PRIOR to the first contestant being accepted into the online pageant. Once a category has at least one delegate in the online pageant, the option to go straight to the international pageant is no longer available.

If I win a Midwest pageant title, can I compete in other systems?

Yes. We encourage it!. The only requirement is that the state winners compete in the international event, any other titles must allow for that to take place

What is the prize package for the Online Pageant?

Female winners in state division from Jr . Miss to Elite will receive her Entry Fee** to the International Pageant paid and will receive a crown & rhinestone trimmed embroidered satin sash and will represent their state at the International Pageant. 

All winners in the baby to Pre-teen categories will win cash prizes equivalent to 50% of the total entry fees for that age category as there are no divisions for them at the international pageant.

** There must be a minimum of 5 delegates in the division to award full international prize. If less than 5 delegates, the winners will receive the equivalent of the total entry fees received for that division towards their entry fees for internationals.
