Pageant Week Extras

Who’s ready to take over Chicago?! I absolutely cannot wait to meet all the contestants competing for this year’s Mrs., Miss, and Miss Teen International titles! I know you are excited and anticipating what the week will be like.

Having competed twice for the title of Miss Teen International, I have a couple insider secrets to share with you before you leave so you will be better prepared on how the week will go!

Be prepared for a photo as soon as you arrive at the hotel! Remember: you are representing your state, region, or country and the International Pageant System and yourself. Arrive to impress!

Be sure to have full hair and makeup ready to go EVERY MORNING during the pageant week. You will have plenty of time for touch ups, but look your best as soon as you step out of your room.

My interview group!

Monday: Orientation. Be ready to meet and greet all of your fellow sisters! Bring your camera and sash. You will be given your contestant number and interview group/time here! Snacks will be provided.

Tuesday: Fun day in Chicago/Dinner. Wear something fun and comfortable as you will be out and about Chicago. Don’t forget to bring autograph cards or a pad of paper and pen to sign for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club. Can you imagine having a photo signature of a prestigious beauty queen you actually got to speak to?! That’s what these kids are looking forward to!

At dinner that night, we take a huge group photo out in front of the theater. Eddie Peterson-California International Pageants director will be speaking. Bring your tissues!

Yummy, heart healthy food all week!

Wednesday: Interview/rehearsals. You will enter with your group that was assigned to you at orientation at the time given to you. Afterwards, a delicious lunch will be provided. Take time to relax and get ready for rehearsals that night!
