Subject: Too the above poster. Don't ever give up a dream. God doesn't. I will continue to compete in my state pageant because I do feel I can represent both married women and this organization. However, I would hope that somehow I could influnce Mrs. America to come up with a mission. For organizations, failure to follow and draft a mission statement leaves the organization to loose identity and well, fail. I guess as long as there are married women out there who want to compete it won't fail, but it will never be as good as it could be.

In reply to: Mrs. 's message, "To all the directors out there and to those who've been around this system for a while (meaning more than 5 years), what does this system look for in it's winners? Taking a look at the states themselves there's a wide range of winners from young (24) to older (44) that's a 20 year age span. Click in for a bit more." on 05:34:40 07/14/10 Wed

[> Subject: From the Mrs. A website: "This renowned national competition is devoted to emphasizing that America's 70 million married woman are extraordinarily beautiful, poised, articulate and versatile."

Maybe the criteria is intentionally vague. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the job description is left wide open. This allows the women and the directors to define it for themselves. Just a though.

[> [> Subject: Thank you!!! The lead in word is "beautiful" so at least in my world usually that is the controlling descriptor. But you are right it's vague and allows for a wide range of choices.
