Judges will be made aware of these rules and deduct accordingly.

Contestants in fifth grade and over, make up, pageant hair styles, and sparkle are allowed in these divisions! Judges will be looking for a naturally beautiful, confident, and well put together queen. You do not need pageant experience to participate!
