5.  INTERVIEW

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 Mentorship 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!

6.  WHAT IS A DREAM BOARD

All contestants will create a dream board and turn it in at Interviews.  A dream board is a collage of images, pictures and affirmations of one's dreams.  It is designed to serve as a source of inspiration and motivation.

JR. MISS DIVISION: 10-12 years old  

Jr. Miss Contestants 10-12 years old are to wear a short cocktail dress only! No high low dresses, form fitted dresses or long dresses are allowed in these divisions.  Contestants that decide to wear a long dress will receive a ten point deduction, no exceptions!  Natural dresses can have embellishments such as pearls, rhinestones, lace and glitter tulle. There are no restrictions on shoes, parents should use their best judgement on what makes their child feel comfortable and what looks age appropriate on them.

TEEN & MISS DIVISION: 13-16 years old  AND  17 -24 years old

Miss contestants 17 -24 years old are to wear long dresses only and 13-16 years old can wear a long or short dress, this is only division that has a choice in the length.   No high low dresses are allowed. Contestant will receive a ten point deduction, no exceptions!  Prom dresses and evening gowns with embellishments are all acceptable. However please note that facial Beauty, a well put together look, stage presence and personality are far more important than how much you spend on your dress.  We want our contestants to be able to enjoy and afford their pageant.  Our contestants have an equal chance of winning the highest title regardless of whether you had a top designer make your dress, bought it off the rack or borrowed a dress from a friend.  There are no restrictions on shoes, parents/contestant should use their best judgement on what makes them, or their child feel comfortable and what looks age appropriate on them.  

Make up is allowed in all divisions, it needs to be tasteful and age appropriate makeup to enhance your beauty on stage.  Your daughter may look washed out on stage, so makeup needs to be very age appropriate, we also don't want a 14 year-old looking like she is 18 years old. 

One parent or chaperone is allowed backstage to assist your daughter getting dressed and doing hair and makeup.  There will be no sibling backstage unless they are competing.  Wrist bands will be given to all parents and chaperones, if you do not have a wrist band on you will be asked to leave.  Hair should be nice and dressy as you would wear for a special occasion. "Flippers" which are fake teeth are NOT allowed, if you have missing teeth or braces, you will NOT be marked down for it, this is a natural part of childhood, so the judges do expect to see missing teeth and braces on some of our beautiful contestants!
