Contestants compete in one category: A CHRISTMAS PARTY DRESS
Each contestant should be dressed in a short party dress...think Christmas dress! All Junior Miss contestants can wear either a short formal or long evening gown. All wardrobe should be age appropriate. Each contestant will be scored 1-25 points by each judge.

This is a natural pageant, not a glitz pageant:
— No flippers
— No hair pieces
— No false eyelashes
— Professional service providers will not be allowed backstage
— An adult chaperone must accompany every contestant
— We are a family-friendly fundraiser. Poor sportsmanship or bullying of any kind will cause you to be disqualified and dismissed from the pageant.
— All results and judges’ scores are final
— Absolutely no refunds

Each contestant will receive a participation award and gift. Each winner in their division will receive a crown, trophy, sash and savings bond. Princess runners-up in each division will receive a crown and trophy.
Baby Miss: 0-1
Tiny Tot Miss: 1-2
Wee Miss: 3-4
Little Miss: 5-6
Young Miss: 7-8-9
Pre Teen Miss: 10-11
