Would like everyone's opinion on at what age is it time tostop competing in the America system? Even though I'm a go getting in competing I can't seem to come out on top. I have tried all sorts of adjustments thinking it will help but still no luck. I am discouraged that maybe it may be my age that is at my disadvantage. However I see lots of other state winners who are out of the "young" status. Any thoughts?

[> Subject: The vision of Mrs America varies from year to year and from state to state. States in the north and northeast typically send somewhat older contestants. Smaller states send what they have. Large southern states tend to send former USA contestants. I don't know if there is a time to quit fir you. Personally every year has different contestants. But if you're in your mid to late 30s and have tried for your state title at least three times I'd say it might be time to look at another system or get an honest evaluation from a good coach.

[> Subject: YOU really need to be beautiful to win America. I am not saying your not but it's what this system looks for. Best looking on stage wins. Even if you do wonderful in interview the last standing is the most beautiful women not the most well rounded.
