Have you ever wondered why, when you’re looking for a pageant in your state you’ll end up on a site to a competition listing four or five states?
Well, welcome to the world of the multi-state pageants !!! Some directors, primarily on the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic region, find it to be a cost saver or a way to increase their candidate pool. Unlike the massively large states of California, Texas, or Florida…..tiny states in the East (Maryland, Delaware, Maine, Rhode Island) often have a hard time recruiting contestants.
It’s not a bad thing, it’s actually pretty fun….especially when you competing in a state preliminary. What’s more fun than heading to a national pageant already knowing someone!!! Makes roommate selection pretty easy 🙂
So the next time you searching for Miss DC Pretty and Smart and you wind up on Miss DC/VA/NH/VA – don’t be shocked, it could be a very good thing!
