Biographical Information 

This form is due May 1, 2022.

Your answers should include information that you consider important for the judges to know about you. The judges may take their interview questions from your Bio/Resume. Use the space provided and no more is allowed. Do not include everything you have ever done in your life. Only include the information needed for the pageant and judges. We will not include extra pages; therefore, there is no need to send extra information. Keep your answers simple, direct, and to the point. Write your information in a format that is interesting and piques the judge's interest in wanting to know more. 

Example: 

Career - Answer: Model, Actress, Author

Answering in short form allows the judges to then possibly ask, "Where did you model?" or "When did you begin modeling?" or "When were you an actress?" or "What roles have you portrayed?" or "Are you a published author?" or "What is the name of your book(s)?" You don't want to tell them all of the details in your answer, because you want to leave information for them to ask that intrigues them. 

Please screenshot/copy these answers, in order to review them before the pageant. 

Your Bio/Resume information will be reviewed by the judges and may be used for the script during the pageant. 

You will need to plan for 6 different outfits.

Have all outfits on hangers and ready to wear. It helps to organize each outfit by putting all items together for that outfit. Put jewelry in a bag and hang on the hanger with the appropriate outfit and organize in this manner for traveling and when setting up in the dressing room. When you arrive at the venue, you will check in your hotel room. Leave your outfits for Queen's Dinner, Interview with the Judges, and pajamas in the room. Take your outfits: evening gown, opening number, active lifestyle, and fashion runway to the dressing room and hang together on the rack near your assigned table. Again, please keep all elements of each outfit together. The dressing rooms are full of many items. It is your responsibility as a delegate to organize and manage your outfits, shoes, and accessories. Other delegates are not allowed to help you find lost items or organize your items. Asking other delegates to take care of you takes time away from them. We will have dressing room attendants to help with things like zipping zippers and to keep up with the schedule, but they are not allowed to organize your personal items. Wear something appropriate but comfortable to rehearsal on Friday.

Queen's Dinner: (Friday night before pageant)

This is a meet and greet dinner the night before the pageant. The pageant will sponsor this dinner at no extra cost to delegates. Any guest attending will have to purchase a ticket to the dinner. Each delegate may only bring one (1) guest. Plan to wear a cocktail dress, jumpsuit, or evening wear pants/top. You may wear a long evening gown, but don't feel this is necessary and add unnecessary expense to your budget. The members of the Board of Directors and a photographer will attend. The judges will not be at the dinner. You will be asked to stand and introduce yourself. Sashes and crowns are required at the dinner.

Interview with Judges: (Saturday morning before pageant)

Wear something you would wear to a job interview or would wear if invited to be a keynote speaker. Suits, whether slacks or skirts, with a jacket are great for this interview. You may also wear a dress. Be sure you are able to comfortably sit down. Look at yourself or have someone make your picture sitting in the outfit. Think about what jewelry and shoes you wear with this outfit. Enhance with jewelry and shoes but do not go overboard. Remember to stay business minded when planning for interview. This is your first impression with the judges! You will not wear crowns and sashes to the interview.

Opening Number

An outfit of a certain color is required for the opening number. The color of the outfit for opening number will be communicated to all delegates by January 22, 2022. This may be a dress, jumpsuit, or pantsuit. No long dresses for the opening number. You will not wear your crown or sash. Wear something stylish. You may choose something you would wear for an evening out or to church. There will be a simple dance routine taught to you through videos and on the workshop day. You will rehearse several times the day before the pageant also. Workshop date TBD.

Active Lifestyle

This outfit should represent your more casual side. It should state what you do to stay active. You may play tennis or golf, travel, exercise, dance, etc., therefore go with something you do and love. You will be allowed to carry one (1) prop. Example: if you play tennis, you may carry a tennis racket. The prop must be something you are able to carry on and off stage without assistance and requires no set up. If you need help deciding on active wear, call Kim Crawford-Meeks at 205-381-6767, and she or one of the board members will assist you. 

Fashion Runway

Show off your modeling ability with this outfit. Think of models walking and showing off their outfits. You may wear a jumpsuit with a train, cocktail dress with a train, dresses or pants outfits with sequins/rhinestones. No evening gowns allowed for this outfit.

Evening Gown with On-Stage Question

This is your chance to be glamorous. Your dress should be long and elegant. Wear shoes you can walk and stand in. Most delegates wear dresses with lots of sparkles or beads. Wear something that picks up the lighting. If you plan to wear high heels, please practice walking around the house in them and up and down stairs. Don't buy new shoes and wear them the first time on the day of the pageant. You will model your evening gown and then approach the microphone for your question. After answering the question, step back for a final pose, then exit the stage.
