Phases Of Competition
Judges Personal Interview
The judge’s personal interview is an opportunity for the contestant to represent themselves as an individual and show their personality. Each contestant will have interview in round robin format with 3 minutes with each judge. This will be a pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere where the judges will get to know you better. Interview counts for 25% of the contestant’s overall score.
Each contestant will wear the following attire during this segment:
- White sneakers (“white” must be the dominant color, but the sneaker can have a stripe or splash of another color)
- White socks NOT ABOVE THE KNEE
- White shorts NOT BELOW THE KNEE with a belt
- T-shirt provided by the Little Miss Tennessee United States
In the Evening Wear phase of competition, contestants are required to walk across the state in an evening gown of their choice. Judges will score based on poise and grace of each contestant. The Evening Wear portion of the competition counts for 25% of the contestant’s overall score.
During this phase, contestants are asked a random question from a predetermined list that they must then answer onstage with no preparation. Questions normally allow the contestant to talk about herself or give her opinion of general issues. Current events are not normally discussed during this phase of competition in the Miss United States system. The Onstage Question counts for 25% of the contestant’s total score.
