unname1212dThis is your time to shine! All contestants will compete in this competition. Contestants will do a simple walk on the stage. The stage will be in the shape of a T crossing at the back. There will be four X’s marked on the stage. Contestants should stop at each X marked on the stage and turn at either all of the X’s or the ones of their choosing. Our emcee will read about them to the audience! All contestants up to age 11 yrs. can wear a short or long dress. Ages 12 yrs. and over should wear a floor length evening gown. NO CUPCAKE STYLE GLITZ DRESSES PLEASE. We supply the music. Judging will be based on facial beauty, stage presence personality and overall appeal.

Contestants Ages 0-11 years are not permitted to wear any make-up. Clear lip gloss and clear mascara are allowed only. They are not allowed to use false tanning, eyelashes, flippers, falls, wiglets or hair pieces when competing in any of the onstage events. If your child wears braids or hair extensions in their hair as part of their EVERYDAY look that is ok to compete with at East Coast USA. We also understand that some children have medial conditions that require them to wear a hair piece. Please bring this to the attention of the director for assistance. Contestants are checked to make sure they are following the guidelines before they go on-stage. Time Limit: 1 minute

Group Line Up

Each age division will come onstage together before they compete individually. They will line up across the back of the stage and smile for the judges! This also gives the judges a chance to access the group as a whole.

A parent, sibling or friend of each toddler contestant 0-3 yrs. is allowed on stage with them at all times.

PATRIOTIC COMPETITION

This is a free style modeling event. Show us your American Spirit! Attire should be a trendy “boutique” outfit or more of a costume. Show us your red, white and blue! Choose an outfit that showcases your personality. This is your chance to show the judges your unique style and have fun! The music will be fast and upbeat and we supply the music. Contestants should stop at each X on the stage, strike a pose, turn and/or show some personality! Hand held props may be used. Judging will be based on personality, modeling ability and overall appearance. Time Limit: 1 minute
