Contestants will compete in three phases
of competition for
Sterling Miss USA.
Interview – Petite Miss and
Little Miss will interview in the
round robin format for a
30 second visit with each judge.
Jr. Teen will have a three
(3) minutes interview and
Teen, Miss and Ms. contestants
will have a four (4)
minute interview, each before the panel of judges.
Onstage Introduction – all contestants will
give a personal introduction after the opening
number of pageant finale. Girls should speak
no more than 30 seconds and should tell the
judges her Name, Title, and some fun things
about herself. Suggestions are to talk about
hobbies, what she wants to be when she grows
up, what she enjoys about school,
etc.? The sky is the limit. This is your time
to shine as you tell the judges about
“INCREDIBLE YOU”! Don’t be shy.
Formal Wear - get ready for your
time in the spotlight as you model
that special gown that makes you feel
like a princess. All gowns for all age
divisions should be long, to the floor
gowns with appropriate shoes. For
all age divisions, the contestant must
walk the stage by herself.
The walking pattern will be provided,
with plenty of time to practice
before pageant weekend. We will also
have the stage marked, as the girls practice
on the stage during Saturday rehearsals.
