America’s Majestic Miss is designed to help young girls and women showcase their talents and skills while developing their confidence and poise as they represent their states. This pageant system celebrates the individuality of young women today while giving each contestant and their families’ memories of a lifetime. We promote and encourage each contestant’s success through the development of skills we believe are most important to possess in our competitive world today: confidence, communication skills, character, and leadership qualities.
America’s Majestic Miss is a national pageant program that combines beauty and the excitement of a national pageant while recognizing personal achievements, academic excellence, and community service. Our program is designed to reward girls and young women for their accomplishments, and to develop them to reach their full potential and lifetime goals by providing personal and professional opportunities. In addition to the scholarships, the national winners receive a great prize package, appearance opportunities and much more. We are a natural pageant with a touch of glamour.
After registration the girls attended the AMM costume party where they wore their favorite costume and brought their favorite bear/doll also dressed. The contestants enjoyed refreshments which included the AMM castle cake with a replica of each of the reigning national queens replicated with their own queen cakes. This was quite a hit with the girls and everyone had queen cake pops. Best costumes were awarded a special Halloween “spook-tak-ular” crown and banner as well as the best dressed dolls/bears. The AMM magic mirror was available for photo ops and each girl enjoyed making new friends, exchanging gifts and making lasting memories. Each contestant brought a new stuffed animal which will be the new national queens’ first appearance to donate the animals to Egelston’s Children’s Hospital.
Interviews were held early Saturday morning with each contestant giving their personal introduction and spending 3 minutes with each judge in a round robin panel.
Optionals were held Saturday afternoon while the contestants participated in Talent, Speech, Commercial, Photogenic, Supermodel, Portfolio, Casual wear and Outfit of choice.
Contestants are judged in 3 different areas of competition: evening wear, introduction/ interview and Majestic wear which determine the national winners in each age division. Contestants also have the opportunity to compete in many of our optional competitions including talent, supermodel, photogenic, portfolio, commercial, speech, casual wear, and outfit of choice.
Interviews were conducted by the judges where each girl lets the judges know who they are, showcase their personalities along with why they are the best candidate for the National title. Our national queens must be able to serve as the national spokespeople for our system and must be confident, articulate, and project a positive upbeat personality.
Majestic wear allows each contestant to showcase their personality and sense of style. They are encouraged to wear an outfit which makes them feel Majestic. From casual to chic to whimsical and fun, each contestant was worthy of the best fashion show while creativity abounded.
Evening wear in its entire splendor allowed each girl to model their choice of evening gowns to highlight their beauty, confidence, overall appearance and individuality.
