Our printable paperwork is
very detailed to ensure you receive as much information as possible to
assist you in making your decision whether Miss Royalty International is
the right fit for you. Please click on the "Information" link at the
top of this page to download that detailed paperwork, and most of your
questions should be answered. However, some of the more common
questions that we are asked are shown below.
IS HAIR AND MAKEUP
For Junior contestants ages 4-12, minimal, age
appropriate makeup is allowed, especially for stage competitions.
Always err on the side of caution ... our judges are Miss America type
judges, and they are not used to seeing big hair or makeup on children.
Especially in interview, where the judges will see the contestants up
close, little to no makeup would be best. On stage, a little blush
or lip gloss is fine. Look at the photos of our winners and on
facebook; you will see that little to no makeup is used on the little
ones. For older girls in the 13+ Miss pageant, hair and makeup is
fine. These are teenagers and young women, and it is age appropriate
for them to have hair and makeup, tanning, etc. The key is to look
natural, so the judges don't look up and say "look at her makeup" ... you
want them to say "look at her!"
IS INTERVIEW PANEL-STYLE
OR INDIVIDUAL ("ROUND ROBIN")?
Interviews are panel-style and are 2 1/2 minutes long. You will be
seated during your interview.
ARE AD PAGES REQUIRED?
No. We have an optional ad sales title (International Cover Girl),
but it is not required.
DO YOU TELL HOW MANY/WHO ARE IN MY AGE DIVISION?
No. Please don't ask.
ARE POLITICAL OR CURRENT EVENTS QUESTIONS
ASKED IN INTERVIEW?
No. Judges initially get to know you, as a
"starting point," from your responses to questions asked on your
registration/entry form. This keeps them from being completely blank
when you walk into the room, and provides them with a basis from which to
begin talking to you. They may or may not continue to ask you
questions from your bio as the interview progresses, but they are
instructed not to ask political or current events questions. The
interview is not a test of your knowledge, but rather a way to interact
with you personally to learn your personality, comfort level, and
ARE MOMS ALLOWED IN INTERVIEW?
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE ACTIVITIES BEFORE AND
DURING PAGEANT WEEKEND?
In addition to the typical activities of registration,
orientation, rehearsals, competitions and crowning, we have a contestant
gift exchange, decorated tshirt contest, social media challenge contest,
Awards Dinner, party with prizes, candy buffet, selfie station, raffles,
IS THERE A FALLBACK DATE FOR AGE DIVISIONS?
No, you enter the age division that is equivalent
to your age on the first day of International Finals, i.e. August 19,
2016. There are no fallback dates.
CAN I PURCHASE EXTRA
MEAL/ADMISSION TICKETS AT THE PAGEANT?
Admission tickets will be sold at the pageant, but the
preferred Gold ticket seating always sells out before the pageant.
These are seats that close to the stage. General admission tickets
will be sold at the door. Meal tickets must be purchased in advance
because the hotel needs a total count in order to purchase the correct
amount of food. We give the hotel the final count two weeks before
the pageant, and no meal tickets can be purchased after that point.
