Welcome to the 2018 Mini Miss & Little Miss Golden Heritage Days Pageant. Our pageants are for Gibson County residents. Mini Miss is for ages 3-5, and Little Miss is for ages 6-8 as of the date of the pageant, Friday, September 21, 2018.
Heritage Days is all about culture and annually celebrating our, well, heritage. This years’ theme is based all around that idea. You will need lots of history and creativity for this year! Think about a culture the contestant and her family lives by or is inspired by. Re-create that image with a modest wardrobe and a couple simple paragraphs explaining your choice, some facts on it, and why. This will be submitted as part of your contestant’s biography sheet.
Example: Culture doesn’t have to be based on an entire country or ethnicity, it can be something very specific, such as, Romani. If you were to google what Romani’s are, there is a long list of what makes them, them --- their attire, beliefs, way of life, food, etc. Don’t be afraid to be creative! This is all in celebration of Heritage Days and our country being the melting pot of so many different, beautiful cultures!
Competition will consist of modeling and answering an on-stage question. The contestants will be scored based on their personality, attire fitting to theme, description of theme wear on biography sheet, and ability to answer an on-stage question. (More details are on the rules page.)
A $40 sponsorship fee for each contestant will be required prior to the first practice. This can be paid at the Gibson County Chamber office. The name of the sponsor will be announced during the pageant.
Judges’ decisions will be tabulated by the Gibson County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Judges’ scores and decisions are final.
The goal of the pageants is for the contestants to get familiar with being on stage, in front of a crowd and have fun. We would like to have a Queen who will converse with the public during the Festival.
