    • Interview (40% of overall score) A 3 minute Private Interview with the judging panel. The Private Interview phase of competition is an opportunity to learn as much as possible about the contestant - her personal qualities and attributes; her level of communication skills; her opinions and aspirations; her sense of accomplishment, poise, presence, “first impression”; responses; ability to fulfill the duties and responsibilities. (excludes Petite Miss)

      Miss Contestants Only-Interview (40% of overall score) A 5 minute Private Interview with the judging panel.

    • Evening Wear (60% of overall score) –The Evening Wear phase of competition is designed for the judge to assess the contestant’s poise, grace, and stage presence.  The contestant’s total look is considered.  Her evening wear (not the value of the evening wear) should complement the contestant’s individuality.
