This is a NATURAL PAGEANT and contestants should look their age. A panel of judges will
score each contestant during their individual competition with the title of Little Miss Kentucky going to the young lady that
receives the highest score in the Beauty Division which includes three phases of competition: Dress, Casual Wear and On-Stage
Question. The title of Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky will be awarded to the young lady that receives the highest score in the
Beauty (Dress, Casual Wear and On-Stage Question) and the Talent divisions combined. All Pre-Teen contestants MUST compete
Several local pageants
in the Miss Kentucky system hold Little Miss preliminaries with the winner(s) advancing to the Little Miss Kentucky / Pre-Teen
Miss Kentucky Pageant. You can contact these local pageants by clicking on the link to the left which will take
you to a page containing their contact information. Any contestant who wins a local preliminary Little Miss or
Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Title is automatically allowed to advance to the state Little Miss or Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Pageant
with their official local title. Therefore, once a young lady wins a local preliminary pageants she is NO LONGER ELIGIBLE
to compete in any other Little Miss or Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Local Preliminary Pageants for that pageant year. At-large
entries are also welcomed so you do not have to win a local pageant to participate in the state competition.
The judges' panel will
be instructed to look for the girl next door NOT a child that is 5 going on 25. This should also follow through in the photos
submitted for the Photogenic competition and their performance in the Talent competition. Photogenic and Talent competitions
are optional for the Little Miss Pageant and are not included in your $50.00 entry fee. Photogenic competition
is optional for the Pre-Teen pageant and is not included in your $75 entry fee (but talent is mandatory for pre-teens).
Further information with
times for practice will be posted at a later date. Also, attached, you will find a photographer's release. This MUST
be signed by each photographer that has taken a photo that will be placed in the program book. Without the release, the photo
WILL NOT be published.
The Little Miss/Pre-Teen
Miss Kentucky Pageant Committee will work hard to maintain the integrity of this competition. It is the committee's desire
that every contestant walk away with a good feeling about themselves as well as the Little Miss/Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky program.
Only two young ladies will become Little Miss Kentucky and Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky, but it is our hope that all the contestants
will develop the desire to continue to participate in the Little Miss, Pre-Teen Miss, Miss Teen and Miss Kentucky programs.
