JUDGING & CRITERIA FACTS & QUESTIONS How is the MISS CHARLOTTE USA® and MISS CHARLOTTE TEEN USA® Pageant judged? Each contestant will be judged in three areas of competition; Interview, Swimsuit and Evening Gown. Judging criteria includes character, poise, confidence and personality. Is there a talent portion of the competition? No, there is no performing talent required. There are three equally scored categories, including interview, evening gown, and swimwear. Are you only looking for perfect “10’s”? Absolutely not! Whether you’re 4 foot tall or 7 foot tall it doesn’t matter. In the swimsuit portion of the competition, the judges will be looking for physical fitness, which includes a healthy and fit body. There’s usually a wide range of body styles and types represented each year on the stage. We’re looking for outgoing, intelligent, confident, attractive young women excited to represent the beautiful Queen City, CHARLOTTE. What if I do not live in Charlotte? Miss Charlotte is open statewide for all girls who meet age and residency qualifications for the state. You can live in any town or city of North Carolina or be a full time student and be eligible for the title and crown of Miss Charlotte USA and Miss Charlotte Teen USA. Do I have to be a “Pageant Girl” to enter? Not at all, in fact many of our contestants are newcomers to pageants. Are there any height or weight requirements to compete in the pageant? Absolutely not! Each contestant in our pageant is an individual and the judges are looking for body proportion and personality, not a specific body measurement. What clothing do I need to compete in Miss Charlotte USA and Teen USA? Most girls already have the outfits in their closets for a preliminary pageant. You will model an evening gown of your choice that makes you feel beautiful. Many girls wear their prom and homecoming gowns for the preliminary pageants. You will need a swimsuit, either one or two-piece(no strings or thong bottoms), that showcases your fitness and body type, and an outfit to meet the judges in for your personal interview. Your interview attire can be jeans, slacks, shorts with a cute top. a sun dress or short cocktail. This is your time to show your personal style and taste. Also, see opening number outfit below. LASTLY, the most important thing you can wear is YOUR SMILE of course. What is the "Introduction or Opening Number Outfit" for? At the beginning of the show for the pageant, each contestant will be introduced to the audience during an upbeat, choreographed introduction musical number (contestant will not sing, and the choreographed moves are very easy - you do not need to be a dancer). If I win, will it interfere with school? We make school the number one priority! We encourage your academic and professional success! Almost all of your appearances, celebrity events, and charity work will take place during the weekend and will be scheduled in advance. Now is the time to make your dreams come true. Enter today at www.misscharlotteusa.com or call Cindy at 813-468-7390 and bring your friends and family to cheer for you as you compete on stage for the official crown and banner for Miss Charlotte USA and Teen USA on June 16, 2012 @ 7:30pm.
