The winner of the pageant will receive a $1,000 award, the official crown and banner, a bouquet of roses and air transportation to compete in the National pageant in California, where she will receive a free tour of Hollywood and two V.I.P. tickets to Disneyland.

The pageants are dedicated to celebrating America’s future leaders and equipping them with lifelong skills. Each year, the pageant nationally awards $1.5 million, in cash and scholarships and other prizes, which includes a new Ford Mustang Convertible.

Activities and competitions of the pageant are kept age-appropriate. Girls younger than 12 are not allowed to wear make-up, and there is no swimsuit competition. Emphasis is put on the importance of developing self confidence, learning good sportsmanship and setting and achieving personal goals.
