There are four areas of competition for the Title of Miss Allen County.
Competition Area 1: Interview – Professional Dress or Suit – 50 points
Each contestant will have four minutes to interview with the judges. She will answer impromptu questions from the three judges. Typically the questions will come from each contestant’s information sheet. Professional attire is required.
Competition Area 2: Professional Wear – Professional Dress or Suit – 20 points
The professional wear suit does not have to be of the same fabric. Separates will be allowed. Suit or professional dress worn by contestant in her interview should also be worn and judged in the Professional Wear Category. No props are allowed.
Competition Area 3: Evening Gown – Long Evening Gown – 30 points
At least one portion of the evening gown’s hemline needs to be floor length. Other portions of the dress may be knee or tea length, depending on the design of the gown. The judges may discount a gown with the skirt split above knee (more than 2 inch above the kneecap is maximum) and/or low cut bodice/cutouts.
Competition Area 4: On Stage Question – Evening Gown – 10 points
The question will either be taken from the contestant’s Information Sheet or each contestant will draw a random question. This will be determined prior to the pageant in order for the contestant to prepare. Contestants are not judged on right or wrong answers, but rather how they answer the question and the personality the portray.
