2011 Winter Carnival
I am so excited that you are going to be part of our pageant. We'll have a good time and
I look forward to working with each of you and your family.
Attached is your application. Please fill it out completely and return to me with a 2x3
picture of yourself. This needs to be completed as soon as possible as we have programs
to print. You can either bring it to the first rehearsal or mail to: Debbie Partrick PO
Box 253 Vernon, VT 05354.
Also attached is our rehearsal schedule. It is very important that you be at every
rehearsal! If you are not able to attend, please call and let me know. My home number
is 802-254-9561 and my cell is 585-314-2847.
You will also need to get a sponsor. Please get a check made out to Brattleboro Winter
Carnival from your sponsor in the amount of $100.00 and turn in with your application or
no later than February 1st. Please remember if your sponsorship has not been paid you
will not be able to participate in the pageant.
All contestants have the option of writing an essay and the winner will receive a trophy
the day of the pageant. The essay is based on the subject, “What Winter Carnival
Means to Me”. The winner is selected by the pageant judges. I strongly encourage you
to participate. Turn your essay into me no later than February 23rd.
This is a time to have fun. Practice, practice, practice. Make sure you have what you
need for your individual talent ready. You must bring your music for your individual
talent to the first rehearsal. Remember to smile, the judges and the audience love
smiles. Practice smiling in front of a mirror at home.
Attached you will also find a set of rules. Please read them thoroughly. You will need to
bring a copy of your birth certificate with you to the first rehearsal.
See you soon,
