|Competition will include:
Photogenic – ALL contestants. You will need to submit a 5x7” photo (no professional retouching allowed) to be judged
for photogenic competition. Additional photos may be entered for $10 each. Label each photo with the contestant’s name.
You can mail in your photo or turn it in no later than 30 minutes before your pageant begins. Photogenic winners in each
age division will receive an award and two points toward her total score.
Formal Wear – ALL contestants. Dress should be age-appropriate and in good taste. Pageant dress (not
Sunday Best) expected. No super heavy makeup or fake teeth for ages 0-6.
Casual Wear – Girls ages 7-up ONLY. Your outfit should be age-appropriate and should reflect your personality and
style. Be prepared to show your personality as you walk the stage to upbeat music (we will provide all music). A good rule
of thumb: something trendy that you would wear to the mall with your friends, but a little dressier.
Interview – Girls ages 13-up ONLY. Contestants will each have a 3-minute private interview with our panel of judges.
Judges will ask questions based on the answers you submit on your entry form. They may also ask questions related to
community, school, and other teen/young adult issues. Your interview will conclude with a 30-second opportunity for you to
tell the judges why you feel you should win the title of Miss/Ms. Gardendale as well as cover any information you would like
the judges to know that was not covered in the interview. PLEASE have your 30-second speech prepared. You should
dress as you would for a job interview. The week of the pageant, you will receive your assigned interview time. You should
arrive, dressed & ready by that time.
Side Events (optional) – All contestants are eligible to compete. Prettiest Eyes, Prettiest Hair, Prettiest Smile, Best
Dressed, and Most Beautiful. These events will be judged during the line-up after Formal Wear competition. Side event
winners in each age division will receive an award and one point toward her total score.
