RULES & CATEGORIES
GODDESS AT LARGE
AAG Pageantry does not discriminate against hormones, surgical procedures, enhancements, etc., and will not be considered by any judge in scoring a contestant.
Judging will be on a total point ordinal system – 5 judges at preliminaries, and 7 judges at nationals. The high and low will be dropped at nationals.
Contestants will be judged in the following categories: Interview, Creative Costume, Talent, Evening Gown (Goddess and Goddess at Large), After 6 Attire (Gent), and On-Stage Question.
In any category, contestants may not use excessive glitter, fire, food, or water, nor do anything else that may cause injury to themselves or other persons.
Talent may not exceed seven (7) minutes. Prop set-up and tear-down will be limited to a combined total of five (5) minutes.
Contestants may only have one (1) assistant backstage at any time.
Contestants will receive admission to all nights of competition for all divisions plus one (1) assistant pass for their respective night(s) of competition. All other persons (backup dancers, family, friends, etc.) must have a valid admission ticket to enter the venue.
The use or dispensing of any illegal substance, excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages, and/or anyone caught in the act of stealing or tampering with another person’s property, be it a contestant or any person in the contestant’s party (backup dancers, assistants, etc.) will not be tolerated and may result in immediate disqualification from the competition, and/or result in ejection from the premises.
Contestants must be on time for all designated check-ins and categories. Late arrival to registration will result in the contestant automatically being assigned contestant #1 for the competition. If a contestant has not arrived by the scheduled start time of the Interview category the contestant will be disqualified from the competition.
Contestants must submit their music selections (Creative Costume, Talent(s), and Crowning) prior to registration. In addition, contestants must possess a backup of their music selections throughout the competition for use in case of emergency.
The winner of each division must sign a contract detailing the terms of their reign.
AAG Pageantry reserves the right to make any decisions concerning any matter not covered by these rules.
INTERVIEW (50 points per judge)
Only contestants who advance to the Top 5 will compete in this category. Each contestant that advances to the Top 5 will answer the same question. Contestants will be sequestered until it is their time to answer the question. Contestants will be judged on poise, confidence, ability to communicate, vocabulary and grammar, and overall effectiveness of answers. At the state/regional preliminary level, all contestants will compete in Onstage Question immediately following individual modeling of Evening Gown or After 6 Attire.
Each division will receive the same prize package
