  • What titles are available?
    There are three titles available in each division. As such, nine (9) women will be crowned at the national/international pageant. The states, regions, provinces and countries compete at the same time. The girl with the highest overall score in her division wins the Continental Worldwide title. The next highest score - who is representing her country - wins the Mrs., Ms. or Miss Global Ambassador title. The girl who has the next highest score - who is representing a US state or region - wins the USA title. You must pay additional entry fees to be entered to win the Global Ambassador or USA titles. Learn more HERE. Those with appointed titles hold their titles for 30 days after the pageant. They have first right of refusal to retain their titles for another year at a reduced entry fee.
  • What is an "appointed" state or regional title? What is an appointed national title?
    Appointed titles are awarded in states or regions where we do not currently have a state preliminary pageant. Appointed state or regional titles are awarded on a first come, first served basis. You may apply for an appointed title in any state or region as long as you either live or own property in the state for which you want to be appointed. Those with appointed state or regional titles are invited to compete at our national pageant. Appointed national titles are for women who wish to represent a country in which they live, or have a hereditary connection to, where we do not have a national pageant. There are no national appointed titles in the United States. We invite as many women as possible to represent! We want a full and fun international pageant! Those with appointed titles are responsible for their own transportation to/from and lodging at the national/international pageant.
  • Do I have to live in the state I want an appointed title in?
    No. You do not need to live in that state. However, you must work, attend school, or own property there. We would prefer that you choose a state in the region in which you live because appearances are required. Regional titles are a good choice if you choose to not represent the state of your residence.
  • What are the areas of competition?
    We have four core areas of competition plus on-stage question: - Personal Interview: You will have the opportunity to speak with each judge, one-on-one for five minutes. You will be judged on how well you communicate and how well you are able to articulate your platform. Interview is worth 25% of your score. - Fitness: You will be judged on your physical fitness and how confidently you carry yourself on stage. You will wear a fitness wear outfit of your choice. No swimsuits. Fitness is worth 25% of your score. - Runway Fashion: This is where our fashion mavens really shine! You will be judged on how confidently you carry yourself on stage and how well you model your outfit of choice. Runway Fashion is worth 25% of your score. - Evening Gown: You will be judged on your grace and how confidently you carry yourself on stage. You will wear an evening gown of your choosing. It must be full-length. Evening Gown is worth 25% of your score. - On-Stage Question: For finalists only, you will be asked a question that you pull from a bowl. On-Stage Question is worth 5 additional points on top of your previous scores.
  • What all do I need to compete?
    You will need an interview outfit, fitness wear, runway fashion attire (something reflective of your personality), evening gown, shoes, jewelry and a white cocktail dress for opening number. There are also non-judged events such as afternoon tea and our Diamonds & Pearls Gala, so you will need outfits for those events as well.
  • What are my responsibilties as a titleholder?
    You have four, non-negotiable responsibilities as a titleholder: 1. You must help recruit new contestants to the Continental Worldwide International Pageant system. 2.

  • How can I use Klarna to get my crown and sash faster?
    We offer a payment plan as well as Klarna to make paying your entry fees as easy on you and your budget as possible. If you go to the PAYMENTS page under the COMPETE tab in the navigation on this Web site, you will see there is an option to make three payments toward your entry fees. To break these down into smaller payments, you can use Klarna, which will allow you to make four (4), interest-free payments over eight (8) weeks. You will not receive your crown and sash until two of the three installments on the PAYMENTS page are made. To get your crown and sash more quickly, you could start a Klarna payment plan like this: Pay the first installment with Klarna this week, which will have you paying about $75 every other week toward this first installment. Then next week, you could use Klarna to pay the second installment, so you will end up paying about $75 per week for nine weeks. Klarna pays the Pageant immediately. As such, once you use Klarna to start paying on the second installment, your sash will be ordered and you will receive your crown and sash within a couple of weeks!
