 A Note from the White House

News Release

The 2018 Mrs. Michigan America Pageant will be held on Sunday, April 29th, 2018, at the Fine Arts Center, 8375 20th Ave., Jenison, MI 49428. Interviews will be conducted on the 28th of April at the DoubleTree Grand Rapids Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan.   The website containing information on the 2016 Midwest pageant winners has been updated.  They are Melissa Brenny, Minnesota; Tiffany Konecko, Wisconsin; Abbie Gentry, Iowa; and Christina Ackerman, Michigan.  Our web site is: www.mrsmichiganpageant.com.

Below are the Application and Fact Sheet which need to be completed and returned to us. All paperwork and applications must be returned by March 15th, 2018.


There will be several changes to wit:

Contestants will be required to supply one color head shot by email for the program book. Each contestant will be required to purchase and provide one ad at a cost of $195 each. There are no limit on additional ads. We will not be listing sponsors this year but rather encourage you to thank them in your ad(s). There will be a costume competition this year. Each contestant must wear a costume representing your state or heritage. You should be prepared to give a short statement describing your costume. This will better prepare you for the Mrs. America Pageant. Each contestant will be required to purchase at least 6 tickets (husbands will however be provided a ticket by the pageant). All tickets will be sold by the venue for $35 each.  We will not be selling any tickets! Information will follow regarding tickets. We hope to have a pageant video technician and photographer. The entry fee is $550, with a deposit of $250, which will be applied against the balance. I will assign a city/county title upon payment of the deposit. We accept Paypal (premieremodeling@hotmail.com), Visa/MC, and checks, which should be made payable to the Mrs. Minnesota  Pageant and reference Michigan. Please mail to Carl Schway, 1918 Twin Circle Drive, Mendota Heights, MN, 55118.

Important! When sending in emails to me, make sure to label the same on the reference line (ie. head shot, payment, ad). All payments will be due by March 15th, 2018, as well as photographs and ads. Hopefully, you will submit them sooner.

Sashes are required and cost an additional $70 for an embroidered sash. If you purchased one from me last year, it will not be necessary as they will be the same. All sashes must be ordered by March 1st as they take about 2 weeks to construct. I hope to obtain a pageant hotel with a special rate soon as well as the location of the interviews to be held on Saturday, April 28th.

Please refer to the information in this News Release regarding the pageant rather than any online attachments or prior emails.

Judging will be based on 50% interview (panel style), 25% physical fitness in a swim suit (one color, one or two piece), and 25% evening gown.

I hope that all of you will participate and make this the best Mrs. Michigan pageant. Since many of you are difficult to reach during the week, I would appreciate it if you would acknowledge receipt of this News Release.


Thank you,

Carl Schway
