Do I have to have children? 
No. Having children is not one of the basic requirements for entry. 

Am I too old to win - Am I too young to win?

The judges are looking for a beautiful, well rounded, articulate woman. Age is NOT a factor.

Is there a height requirement?
There is no height requirement to enter or win. Our state winners have ranged in heights from 4’11 to 6’.

I’ve never entered a pageant before; do I have a chance to win?

Yes. It truly depends on the individual. Every one is given a fair opportunity to win! 

What kind of woman enters the pageant?
Mrs. America attracts women of all ages, vocations, and backgrounds. There are auto mechanics and aeronautical engineers, doctors and lawyers,

aspiring models and actresses, wives and mothers, as well as traditional homemakers. The one thing they all have in common is that they are married and have an eagerness to compete.

Do you have to be married a certain number of years to win? 
No. We have had winners who have been married as little as 7 months and as long as 18 years. 

Do I need a performing talent?
No. We believe that being married is talent enough.

Will I be judged on community service?
No. Realistically most married women are extremely busy with their careers and families; they are contributing to the community by virtue of serving their own families. 

Is there an entry fee?

Yes. We encourage our city and county titleholders to raise the entry fee in their communities. After all they have been exclusively selected to represent

the married women in their areas. The entry fee covers the cost of doing business such as renting a theatrical facility, designing sets and music, as well

as printing, advertising and phone expenses. Space is provided in the official program book to recognize 10 of your supporters.

Are there local competitions I must enter first?                                                                                                                                         There are no local competitions, all contestants come directly to the state competition.  Local titles are awarded on a first come first serve basis.  For a list of current titles already awarded for this year visit our contestant page.  If you(r) city or county titles are already awarded, we will award you a regional title. 

How do I get started?                                                                                                                                                                            Complete the

application and email or mail it to the office along with your application fee.  Once accepted we will send you a packet of information and get your local title banner ordered.
