                     ***LITTLE MISS BLACKHAWK VALLEY***

Community Service:  Although a community service project is not required for competition, it is good if the little girl is involved in her community in some way.  Any community involvement should be noted on the resume rather than having a separate sheet for the Judges’ books as required for Miss Blackhawk Valley’s Pre-Teen contestants.

Resume: The contestant/parent will prepare a one page resume using the Miss Blackhawk Valley instructions and containing information about her school, activities, honors, community involvement and other facts.  This is included in the Judges’ books along with her contestant photo.

                                  PHASES OF COMPETITION

Interview: There will be a 5 minute interview with the contestant seated before the panel of judges who will evaluate her ability to express herself and talk about the things that are important to her including any community involvement that she has done. Attire must be age
appropriate.  Business suits are prohibited. The interview will account for 30% of the total score.

Talent: The talent portion of the competition is the performance of music, drama, art, dance, baton, or acrobatics and is limited to a maximum of 1½ minutes (90 seconds). Music, costume and choreography must be age appropriate. The talent accounts for 40% of the total points.

Casual Wear: The contestant will model a sportswear or casual outfit that expresses her interests and personality.  She will be evaluated on her ability to model the outfit and her on-stage personality.  This accounts for 10% of the total points. 

Party Dress: The contestant will model a party dress that could be worn to a wedding or semi-formal party.  It must be age appropriate. She will be judged on her ability to model the dress and how well it suits her personality, not the dress itself.  Typical pageant dresses with excessive frills and beading are not permitted.  This accounts for 15% of the total points. 

On-Stage Question: There will be two on-stage questions that will be formulated from the contestant resume.  She will be evaluated on her ability to answer the questions, her ability to communicate and her on-stage personality.  This accounts for 5% of the total points.

The contestant with the highest number of total points shall be named

                                 Little Miss Blackhawk Valley.
