Each contestant will receive a t-shirt, a professional head shot (used for the photogenic categories) by our official photographer and a Rhinestone Tiara.
Interviews are the most exciting part of a pageant! Judges really get a chance to get to know each contestant personally and this is where the contestant really has the time to shine! The interview competition will be conducted one-on-one with each judge. You will rotate until you meet and talk with each of the judges for approximately two minutes. You will only be asked friendly, age appropriate and open-ended questions. Contestants will be required to wear the official Miss Mason Area tee shirt with jeans, leggings or shorts. Each contestant will sit with a judge and be asked age appropriate questions, then rotate until she has spoken to all 3 judges.
We believe all of our contestants deserve a fair chance of winning a title, our judges change from year to year and are NOT from Mason County. We take great pride in providing quality judges who DO NOT know our contestants. We want our pageant to be fair and fun!
