    60 seconds or under for Jr. Teen, Pre-Teen, and Teen) introduction to let the judges and audience know more

    about you. It should be attention-grabbing and true to your own style and personality. You will perform your

    Personal Introduction twice in front of a panel of judges; once before your age group begins the interview

    process (for the Interview judging panel) and once more during the finale (on-stage with mic). Judged on

    public speaking ability, mic etiquette, stage presence, inclusion of contestant’s “platform,” and overall

    “HeartShine.”

    of your choice. When making your dress selection, please keep in mind fit, age-appropriateness, length (all

    gowns must touch the floor), and the train (sweeps under 6” accepted). Judged on stage presence, elegance and

    poise, and “HeartShine.”
