News Release 

The 2019 Mrs. Michigan America Pageant will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2019, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Rapids Airport, 4747 28thSt SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49512. Interviews will be conducted on the 27thof April at the same venue. We congratulate our 2018 Mrs. Michigan, Jodi Byers. Our web site can be found at www.mrsmichiganpageant.com. The website also contains information regarding the Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Georgia pageants.

Below are the Application and Fact Sheet which must be completed and returned to us through email by March 15, 2019.

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

The entry fee is $550. We require 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 to our account, premieremodeling@hotmail.com, Visa/MC, and check, which should be made payable to the Mrs. Minnesota Pageant and reference Michigan. Please mail to Carl Schway, 1918 Twin Circle Dr, Mendota Heights, MN 55118. Sashes are required and cost an additional $75, my cost. They are beautifully embroidered. If you purchased one last year, it will not change. All sashes must be ordered by March 1stas they take about 2 weeks to construct. Sashes provided by the former director are not acceptable.

Contestants will be required to supply one color head shot, by email to premieremodeling@hotmail.com, for the program book. Each contestant will be required to purchase and provide one ad at a cost of $195 each. There are no limits on additional ads. We will not be listing sponsors this year, but rather encourage you to thank them in your ad(s). We will auction off the back cover, which will be in color, at a starting price of $300. All bids must be sent by email and will end on March 15, 2019.

Each contestant will be required to purchase at least 6 tickets (husbands will be provided a ticket by the pageant). All tickets will be sold by the venue and are $30 each. Information will follow regarding tickets.

The pageant hotel is the DoubleTree in Grand Rapids. We have obtained a special rate of $115 per night, including breakfast. Although not required, we would appreciate it if you would obtain your rooms at said hotel.

IMPORTANT! When sending emails to me, make sure to label the same on the reference line (i.e. your name, headshot, payment, ad). All payments are due by March 15th, 2019, as are photographs and ads.

I hope that all of you will participate and make this the best Mrs. Michigan pageant yet. While the pageant is a year off, the sooner you enter, the sooner you will get ready and the longer you will be able to use your local Mrs. Michigan America titles.

 

Thank you,

Carl Schway
