Contestants will wait in the Johns Prairie Room and judges will be in the Skookum Room, there are NO parents allowed in the interview room unless cleared by one of the directors before hand. There has to be a valid reason such as a medical condition for a parent to be in the interview. Contestants competing in the Miss Remarkably Beautiful Pageant and the Baby & Prince Charming Pageants will not interview. Only Remarkably Beautiful Contestants will have photos taken. Babies and Prince Charming Contestants will submit their photos online for the photogenic categories.
Interviews are the most exciting part of a pageant, but why you ask? Because the judges really get a chance to get to know each contestant. Questions that are asked during the interview are not going to involve religion or politics. There are age appropriate questions that are fun and easy to answer, we want this to be a positive experience for every contestant. Example question: If I gave you $1000 what would you spend it on and why? Pretty easy to answer, right?
So what do I wear to the interview? All Contestants will interview in the official t-shirt and a pair of jeans or jean shorts.
What do I wear to the photo shoot? A shirt/blouse of your choice and a pair of jeans or jean shorts. The photo is taken from the waist up only. All contestants should have age appropriate makeup on and have their hair done before arrival. Pictures are done first before interviews, please come on time at the time you selected at sign ups

Prom dresses and evening gowns with embellishment 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 ages 9 and up, so tasteful and age appropriate makeup to enhance your beauty on stage is welcome, the reason why it is allowed is because of the stage lighting. Your daughter may look washed out on stage, so makeup needs to be very age appropriate, we don't want a 9 year old looking like she is 15 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. Parents should make accommodations for siblings, this is an enforced rule and can result in a disqualification of your contestant.
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!
