Miss International Pageant Competition & Awards 
 
What is a pageant contest?
A pageant contest, which is more commonly known as a ‘Beauty Pageant’ or ‘Beauty Contest’, is a competition where contestants are ranked by a group of judges based on things like physical appearance, talent, personality, and physical fitness. Using different phases of competitions (such as in in-person interviews or talent performances), the judges select a contestant or contestants to be crowned the winners of the competition. These pageant contest winners are usually called Beauty Queens or Titleholders.
Winning a pageant contest can earn you a number of prizes based on the pageant contest you are entering. Some pageant contests will give the winner cash prizes, scholarship money for school, gifts such as clothing & jewelry and in some cases, you can even win a car. Prizes for a pageant contest depend on the number and kind of sponsors that donate prizes for the winners. In addition to all of the prizes you win in a pageant contestant – you will also earn yourself a crown and a sash with your pageant title on it such as Miss America, Miss India, Miss Universe or Miss World. With this title, you will spend a year attending events, meeting supports and volunteering at various charities in your area. The publicity and notoriety that comes with winning a pageant contest is an important element to being a titleholder. The Miss International Pageants will compete in the following categories:

Stage Questions
