Evening Gown | 30% of Total Score
Delegates will wear a floor-length gown of their choice that makes them feel confident, reflects their personality and is age-appropriate. Each delegate will have their moment in the spotlight as they showcase their grace, beauty and confidence. Scoring is based on stage presence and personality.
Interview | 40% of Total Score
During this phase, our delegates will interview for a chance to be one of the "Infinite 8". Questions will come from their Interview Form. All age divisions will interview panel style for three (3) minutes while wearing their custom Opening Number Dress. We want our delegates to be judged on what they have to say...not what they wear! Scoring is based on interview skills, personality, poise, being yourself and the ability to hold a conversation.
Runway | 30% of Total Score
It's time to hit the runway and compete in our fashion-forward competition. Outfits should showcase their sense of fashion as well as their personality and be age appropriate. Scoring is based on modeling ability, stage presence and personality.
On Stage Question
During the National Competition Finals, the top delegates from Jr. Teen, Teen, Miss, Ms. and Mrs. divisions will each have an on-stage question (judged on a 1-10 scale) which will be added to their overall score to determine final placement.
