Each Contestant will compete in three equal phases of preliminary competition: Fun Fashion, Gown, and Interview. The mentions from the preliminary phases of competition are added up, and the contestants with the highest composite mentions become semifinalists. The number of semifinalists will be determined by the total number of contestants in the competition.
Each contestant is evaluated on grace, poise, style, stage presence, the confidence with which she carries herself, and overall-impression.
Each contestant is evaluated on her personality, confidence, age appropriate styling and overall impression.
****At the discretion of the National Office the highest scorer in each division may be awarded the title of MISS AMERICAN FASHIONISTA™ as an Optional Competition title if she enters said Optional Competition for an additional fee. ****
Preliminary interviews are personal one-on-one style. You will have three minute interviews with each of the judges. It’s very comfortable and conversational. Contestants are scored on their communication skills, and personality. They are NOT scored on their opinions or personal beliefs.
Once the semi-finalists are announced during the final show, they will again compete and the competition will narrow the field to a group of finalists. The judges will then make their final ranking based on their overall impression of each finalist. The judges will select a winner and runner-ups for each of the queen's courts.
The results of this competition is not used to determine the overall winners of Miss American Teenager; however, each contestant is REQUIRED to wear a costume symbolic of the area she represents. Get creative by researching your state flower, tree, or bug. Perhaps someone historical or famous is from your state that you want to represent. Remember, think big...think simple! Awards will be given for Most Original, Creative and Whimsical.
