No. However, if taking your own pageant headshot, here are a few tips to help your image look as professional as possible.
A great five-year-old contestant can outscore an eight-year-old because scores are given to each contestant based on their individual performance. The same is true for every age division. The age divisions are divided into nine age divisions: 2-4; 5-8; 9-12; 13-15; 16-19; and 20-25. The MS division is open to women over age 26 or women who are a parent, divorced, and not married. The Mrs division is open to women, of any age, who are married. The Elegant division is open to all women 50 and over. The age of the contestant is determined on the first day of the American Miss National Pageant.
Yes. The most important thing you want to remember, is AMP is not a glitz and glamour pageant. Please keep in mind - age appropriate make up and clothing which enhances the natural beauty of your daughter on stage, is always the best choice. Same is true for the older age divisions. That includes shoe selection. The ability to be confident on stage, and walk gracefully in each area of competition is what is most important and will always the best choice when selecting a pageant wardrobe.
Absolutely. Sponsors can be a business, organization, family, and or friends. Please be sure to have your sponsor information in by the AMP deadline for printing.

PAGEANT TIP – When selecting an evening gown, be certain your evening gown is altered so that it is not too long. A gown that is too long does not allow a delegate to walk gracefully and can negatively impact her overall score.
Your gown doesn't have to be the most expensive. It should flatter you. Finding the perfect dress is all about knowing which styles will highlight your best features, and keeping your selection elegant, and age-appropriate. Remember, it doesn’t matter what size or shape you are, if you find a dress that you feel confident in, feel free to go for it. It’s all about showing off what you love about yourself!
For the evening gown competition, Judges will be looking for Poise, Gracefulness, Confidence, and Overall Appearance. Scoring: 30% of the overall score. Mini age division only - 50% of the overall score. The Judge’s scores & notes are available one week after the competition and will be emailed to all delegates.
