Our contestants enter for various reasons. For a lot of our contestants, we are a stepping stone into the pageant world. Some of our contestants want a pageant title but don’t want to worry about expensive wardrobes, hair & makeup, travel expenses, high enter fees, or just don’t feel comfortable on stage. Others are looking for a recognizable way to serve their communities.
The written interview portion is required and makes up 60% of your score. The other 40% comes from two optional competitions of your choice, (one optional for those under age six). You may choose from: Community Service, Scholastics, Talent, Beauty (essay or photo), Career, Achievement. If you aren’t sure which two you would score the highest, you may enter more than two.
Local entries will be accepted November 15th – May 31st. State competitions are expected to take place early summer, with National competition in the Fall. All completely online with reasonable entry fees.
Someone from our judging panel will look at your entry to make sure it is complete. They may make suggestions such as answers are too long or too short. This gives you an opportunity to adjust your entry before it is sent for final judging.
We will have a panel of three anonymous judges looking at your entry. You will be judged according to your individual age. You will be given your overall score and any judges comments. You will not receive individual judge’s scores.
If you receive a score of 80-100 points (100 being maximum) you will receive a City Queen title. A score of 60-79 points earns a City Princess title. If you score below 60 points, any fees you have paid (minus the registration fee) will be refunded to you.
No. You may do as much or as little as you wish. We always encourage you to serve your community as Miss American Rose, but there are no requirements. We will send you tips on making appearances once you receive your title.
You may continue on to state competition if you wish, but it is not required.
Miss World Rose is our international competition that takes place once a year. International, national, and local titles are all awarded at the same time. Information will likely be available in February.
