EVENING WEAR/ BEAUTY

25% of your score will come from beauty in evening wear.  For Nationals a floor length gown is required and should be about 1/2 inch off the ground.  Delegates should not hold their dresses as they walk, they should be able to move freely and walk with grace and poise without fear of tripping on a dress that is too long.  The best way to test this is on a floor without carpet.

Delegates are scored on elegance, poise and grace.  Confidence, eye contact with the judges and an easy flow walking and turning is what they are looking for, loose arms, nice smile and most of all comfortable on stage!

Required Competitions

For Title of

Miss Reigning America

Rock and Reign Runway

25% of your score will come from our awesome Reigning Runway Show, with upbeat music, cool fashions and up to date modeling styles.  Our Runway is twenty feet in length with a round turn at the end which is the perfect place to perform your best moves and make that all important eye contact with the judges.  It's not high fashion its funky fashion, fabulous fashion, your fashion.  You can design an outfit of shorts and suspenders or find that perfect cupcake dress for you.  It's about confidence and how well you model your outfit and show your style!

What you wear does not have to be expensive, it just has to be you!

INTRODUCTION

25%  of your score comes from your introduction.   Introduction should be less than 30 seconds and is done in the interview room before the judges.  In the top 5 delegates

will perform their introduction on stage as the final competition.  Introduction should be fun and tell us  your name, what state your representing, your hobbies, goals and interests.  It should be fun and expressive.  Please just don't exceed the 30 second time limit or a point per judge is deducted.

INTERVIEW

25% of your score will come from interview.  Interview is easy and you can easily prepare for our interview with your All About Me Sheet!  All your questions will be on your all about me sheet.  We don't encourage you to memorize the answers but to think over what you would like to say.  The judges only receive the questions, the sheets are for you only to see.  Once again it would be a mistake to sound rehearsed by memorizing your answers but the questions are easy, age appropriate and they will be different for different age groups.  You will receive a copy of the sheet to work with in your information packet.  Interview is panel style and lasts for 2 minutes.  Delegates will walk in, deliver their introduction (up to 30 seconds) and then sit for the two minute interview portion of the competition.  So to be clear the delegate will deliver the intro and that time is 30 seconds, once they sit down and begin the first question the 2 minute timer will begin to time their interview. 


AS A REMINDER IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE NOT READY FOR AN INTERVIEW PAGEANT BUT STILL WANT A NATIONAL TITLE WITH ALL THE PERKS AND EXCITEMENT OF REIGNING AS A NATIONAL QUEEN FOR A YEAR THEN GO TO THE TAB MARKED   JR. TEEN REINGING AMERICA -  THIS COMPETITION HAS NO INTERVIEW AND NO INTRODUCTION.



And that is all that is required to win Miss Reigning America!  It really is just that simple.  These four competitions add up to 100% and they will be scored on Preliminary night.  Once these four scores are added together with all 5 judges you have the potential to reach a score of 500.  We take the top scores in each division to determine who makes the top 10 in each group.  We tend to have small groups due to our age divisions being so close, however if we were to have more in a group than anticipated we would add to that number of delegates in the top group.  When finals night begins, after opening number the top group in each division will be called.  That top group will re-compete in evening wear and introduction on stage.  Once again, they will be scored 1-25 in each division, those scores will be added to the previous score to get our top five and ultimately our Miss Reigning America Queen.  In case of a tie, eveningwear scores will break the tie and in case of a tie still then we will go to introduction.  Scores will be given out at the pageant the morning after crowning!  You will get all your scores and comments right then in writing, with no waiting.
