|ATTENTION MISS GA JR. HIGH, HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGIATE CONTESTANTS: Age divisions for the 2015 Pageant are based off of what grade level you will be entering for the FALL 2014 School year, NOT THE GRADE THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN! Junior High is open to girls CURRENTLY in 5th-7th, High School open to girls currently in 8th-11th & Collegiate open to girls currently HS Seniors and up to any level of college. By the time the National Pageant is here, all girls will be entering a grade above. NOTE: Your grade level will NOT be revealed to the judging panel!|
If you cannot meet all of these obligations, then PLEASE do not enter.
They will be strictly enforced.
If you are crowned Miss Georgia Junior High, High or Collegiate you will agree to represent all Georgia Schools in the National Pageant to be held July 2015 in TBA. Your entry fee, food and room (entry fee/food paid only for Junior) during the pageant will be paid for but it is the Queen’s responsibility to provide her own transportation to and from the National Pageant. At least one parent is required to attend the National Pageant at their own expense. You will also be required to return the following year to crown your successor; this is also when you will be presented with your Scholarship after you have fulfilled your duties as the Queen. Other duties include, but are not limited to, speaking in Georgia Schools, attending/emceeing/judging some pageants, community service work, etc. Miss Georgia Jr High, High & Collegiate is required to make at least 12 documented appearances. In the event that the Miss Georgia Junior High, High, Collegiate queen wins the National title, she will still be required to attend her home state pageant to crown her successor. Miss Georgia Jr/High/Collegiate agrees NOT to hold any other state or National titles that require appearances or advancement to other pageant systems. She is allowed to compete at her school pageant or pageants that do not require appearances on a state level. Local/Festival pageants are allowed. Her title as Miss Georgia High must come first and any other title that she holds should not overshadow her title as Miss Georgia Junior High, High School & Collegiate America. If Miss Georgia Jr High, High, Collegiate does decide to compete in any other pageants, she must notify the pageant office first – so we can make sure there is no conflict of interest. In the event that the Miss Georgia Jr. High/ High School/Collegiate Queen cannot fulfill her duties or does not abide by the rules set for her, she will relinquish her crown to the first runner up and will return/reimburse all prize money and awards.
Contracts will be signed after the queen is crowned and the queen and her parent(s) will also meet with the directors at the conclusion of the pageant.
