Subject: My best advice for being successful at your upcoming state pageant


Author:

Date Posted: 22:49:37 04/06/17 Thu

As someone who has judged multiple local and state pageants, here's my advice for being successful at your next pageant:

Paperwork: This is the area in which you have total control, so it should be perfect. First impressions matter. Make it compelling, unique and professional. Get it proofread by teachers and professors, not your family and friends. Know that, as a judge, I will read, digest and analyze every single word, and question you accordingly. Sign and date it; at every pageant I've judged at least one contestant has failed to do one or both.

Interview: Be authentic and tell us the truth, not what you think we want to hear. Your first thought is usually the correct one. Be honest, vulnerable and real. This isn't an interrogation, but rather a conversation to get to know you. As a judge, I want you to do well. Use my name when appropriate. Laugh when appropriate and make me laugh. An 'attitude of gratitude' goes a long way; judges crown who they like. Make your closing statement something that is specific to you.

Talent: Entertain me. Make me want to see it again. Make me proud to send your talent to the Miss America stage. Practice makes perfect. Seek out professionals who perform your type of talent and ask them for advice, then be mature enough to take constructive criticism and hone accordingly.

Swimsuit: No matter your height, weight or body type, confidence is key! It's only 20 seconds, so relax and have fun. Please don't wear 5"+ platform heels which you can't walk in; that tells me you're overcompensating for misperceived shortness...you can't change your height and I realize that. Video yourself walking on a real stage under bright lights and tweak as needed. Watch YouTube videos of swimsuit competitions to see what works effectively.

On-Stage Question: If the time limit in your state is 30 seconds, set a timer for 25 seconds and have someone with a microphone ask you platform-related questions until you concisely answer within the time limit. Please don't waste time prefacing your answer with "Well..." or "I think" both of which dilute your answer. Be emphatic!

Evening Gown: I'm not going to be impressed with a $3,4 or 5k gown. If you think I won't notice your shoes, you're wrong; they should be as elegant as your dress, not acrylic platforms. On a stage full of beads, sequins and rhinestones, simplicity is often more successful. Massive rhinestone earrings are distracting and overdone. Since judges are usually below stage level, a too-high slit can backfire. A talented seamstress or tailor can be your best friend. Practice walking on a stage; if you can't walk, hem the gown or change the shoes.

Don't believe rumors that your state director is going to tell me who to crown; the overwhelming majority of judges are ethical and take their role seriously. Decide why you want this job and be able to articulate the reasons. Have a viable plan for your life after the pageant, because desperation to win isn't healthy. Take the time to write thank you notes to the people who got you there before you leave for the pageant, especially your parents and local director. Be humble in victory and classy in defeat.

Lastly, know that you're going to get a lot of criticism, some constructive, some hurtful, so have a strong sense of self and don't base your self-worth on a title. Also remember that judges feel exactly what you feel. If you're nervous and scared, we can tell. If you're entitled and arrogant, we know it. If you're eager, happy, confident and at peace, we feel that too...and will likely crown you. Good luck!

Subject: Curious. Each state seems to have something it tends to look for over other aspects in winners. The thread on NY states they pick interview queens. Other states send beautiful girls tat may/may not be super talented. Wondering what the perception is for the various states. Anyone care to give this one a shot?

We are still searching for the names of judges from the following years: (September) 1976, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981.
Also the Preliminary Judges from 1988.

We are still trying to find out if there were 2 sets of judges (one set for preliminary and one set for finals) or just one set of judges for the following years: 2000, January 2007, January 2008,(January2013, September 2014.

We do know that there were 2 sets of judges 1988 thru 1999, 1 set 2001 thru 2004, no pageant in 2005, 2 sets in 2006, 1 set 2009 thru 2002.

If anyone collects programbooks the information may be there.

ANY help is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks, everyone for your patience! I've started up the RTMA Board again for another year--hopefully Voy won't collapse like last year!

For those of you who haven't participated before, RTMA is a fun game in which you choose who you think will win each state pageant, and points are awarded for those who pick the winner, 1st RU, and 2nd RU. (You get extra points if you post your pick before the state's prelims start, if they have them.)

This is NOT People's Choice or anything that impacts the state pageant, so family members and friends are discouraged from spamming the board with multiple votes for their favorite contestant. This is just a game—if more people pick one contestant it has no bearing on anything.

You can participate every week or whenever you'd like; all I ask is that you use the same user name/handle each time so I can track scores (if you've never played before, don't use something generic like "MA fan" or "MAO fan" or "Pageant fan" because everyone uses those).

You also only get one guess, so if you change your mind or post a second choice, I'll take your first choice.

I've put up threads for Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York so far and will continue to put them up over the next few days. (If a state isn't up yet, don't create your own thread, because your vote won't count.)

The board is at www.voy.com/241665/. We've had lots of fun the last few years so I hope we'll get a good group participating again!!

Subject: Are field directors allowed in contestant interviews at local or state pageants? I thought it was in the rules that it was strictly not allowed. What about judging other local pageants?

A question for those who have judged. Do you ever score down for gowns worn out of season? Like competing in a white strapless gown in January or a sleeved or black velvet in July? Curious. Thanks!!
