Judging Criteria & Wardrobe

The judges are looking for the contestant’s exhibition of overall poise, personality, beauty and intelligence.


 Judging Criteria

  • Personal interview before the panel of judges. There are usually 5 to 6 judges. Each contestant can expect to be asked about her family, career if any, activities and interests. You need not have children to become Mrs. Minnesota / Iowa / Wisconsin / Michigan / Georgia.  In addition, if you have been divorced previously, this is not a problem.
  • Physical fitness as assessed in one-piece or two-piece, one-colored swimsuits.
  • Evening gown based on how the contestant carries herself in a gown.
  • On-stage question for the top 5 finalists.
  • Costume competition (MN, IA, WI, and MI only) – this is not included in the point tally, but a special award is given for the best costume.


  • Evening Gown – Full length in the style of your choice.
  • Swimsuit – You may wear a one or two piece one-color swimsuit. Please choose something flattering to your figure and in good taste.
  • Costume representing your state, not your national heritage (MN, IA, WI, and MI only) – This costume may be made by the contestant, rented or purchased. Costumes must be of professional caliber.
  • Personal interview attire – For the interview with the judges, you will need a dress or suit (usually of dressy order). A dress or suit with a little glitter on it is perfectly acceptable and commonly seen in this pageant. No pants will be allowed.
  • Dance rehearsal attire – Please dress to your comfort level. Contestants are generally dressed “sharp” casual. The judges do NOT attend rehearsals.

Family, friends and neighborhood businesses or your own place of work are wonderful sponsors. You may have more than 10 sponsors, but only your top 10 can be listed.
