Age and Division Guidelines
There will be four age divisions as follows. Each contestant will be placed in the appropriate division based on her age on the date of the pageant, June 17th.
(Contestants turning 13 before June 30th are ineligible.)
Tiny Miss: 3-5 years Little Miss: 6-8 years Junior Miss: 9-10 years PreTeen Miss: 11-12 years
There will be four crowned titles given and no overall titles.
Tiny Miss and Little Miss will compete in the following areas of competition:
Casual Wear Modeling (45%) Evening Gown (45%) On Stage Question (10%)
Junior Miss and PreTeen Miss will compete in the following areas of competition:
Private Interview (25%) Casual Wear Modeling (20%) Talent (20%) Evening Gown (25%) On Stage Question (10%)
Casual Wear Modeling: Casual wear is the time for the contestant to show off their personality with an outfit that reflects their style. This is not a theme wear competition and off the rack clothes are required. Simply put, a nice outfit hanging in your closet is appropriate. Modeling should be natural in style. A walking map is enclosed.
Evening Gown: Stones and beading are allowed on dresses. Most pageant gowns are acceptable. We discourage custom glitzy cupcake dresses or extravagantly stoned
dresses as this is a natural pageant. A walking map is enclosed.
Private Interview: Interview will be conducted by a panel and will be approx. 3 mins in length. Most questions will be derived from the Bio sheet you will turn in with registration. Attire should be stylish, age appropriate, and comfortable.
Talent: Talent is required beginning at age 9 because it is meant to help prepare girls to later compete in the Miss Kentuckys Outstanding Teen and Miss Kentucky pageants. No one expects a professional talent, as girls this age are just discovering what they like and learning the skills needed to perform their talents. For some, talent is their favorite part for others it can be the source of anxiety! If your contestant has never competed in talent or feels she is still trying to work out her talent, dont be discouraged by this portion of competition because it truly is meant to be an opportunity to try and more often times than not, they are right on par with the other contestant skill levels!
Time must be 90 seconds or less. No duplicate talents will be accepted per age division. If there are duplicate talents or very similar talents we will accept the one who registered first. Those using the same song but different talents will be
accepted. For example, Shake It Off with a lyrical dance and Shake It Off with a tap dance would be accepted. Two lyricals to Shake It Off would not be accepted. A piano is the only prop provided. If you wish to use a prop or props they need to be easily taken on and off stage. **Talent Music needs to be emailed by June 1st unless other arrangements are made.
On Stage Question: Questions will be your standard age appropriate questions. Questions will not be given ahead of time because we frown upon rehearsed answers. These are not meant to stump or confuse the contestant, simply meant for the audience to get to know her better since we do not get to sit in on private interview. This will be done in evening gown.
Makeup: Age appropriate and a natural appearance is stressed. If you choose to use makeup it needs to be light and natural looking. The judges are notified of this, however, it is still up to the judges discretion to deduct points if they feel makeup is too heavy or not.

Optional competitions are simply an extra opportunity to compete in various ways. These competitions have no effect on your main competition score and will be scored by a separate panel of judges on Saturday night. Some of these competitions have separate entry fees, but some are free! Please make sure to double check you include all required paperwork/materials for the areas you choose to compete in. Tiny Miss and Little Miss Talent ($25): What sets this pageant apart from others is the inclusion of talent being required beginning at age 9. Here is an opportunity to get your little one on stage and let her explore her talents! No one expects a professional talent as girls this age are just learning what they like to do and the skills to achieve them. We respect the effort more than anything! (We also respect how adorable they are performing!!) Time must be 90 seconds or less. No duplicate talents will be accepted per age division. If there are duplicate talents or very similar talents we will accept the one who registered first. Those using the same song but different talents will be accepted. For example, Shake It Off with a lyrical dance and Shake It Off with a tap dance would be accepted. Two lyricals to Shake It Off would not be accepted. A piano is the only prop provided. If you wish to use a prop or props they need to be easily taken on and off stage.
