WV JUDGING INFORMATION: There are 5 categories for Miss and 4 categories for Teen Contestants that will be judged by a panel of judges to determine the titleholders.


Sense of Style Competition – This category requires a nice outfit that represents the contestant’s sense of style. Many contestants choose to wear a cocktail dress. It should fit well, look nice, be tasteful, and eye-catching. This portion is judged on stage during the pageant.


Evening Gown Competition – We strongly suggest a floor length gown that complements you and that you feel comfortable wearing, but anything formal that looks good on you would be fine. Private Judges Interview – Contestants will be interviewed by the judges prior to the start of the pageant. Contestants should wear a suit or nice dress for the interview.


On-Stage Interview – Contestants will do an interview consisting of a question(s). Evening gowns will be worn for the on-stage interview. Teens only will be provided a list pf questions that will be used on stage from a “fishbowl”.
