Little Miss American Legion World Series Pageant - 2019

THE COMPETITION

Contestants in ALL DIVISIONS (0-13 years) participate in both Beauty and Sportswear categories and their choice of optionals.  Contestants must wear a Sunday best dress for beauty.  If a Glitz dress is worn, points will be deducted from the competitor's score. (Fit and Age Appropriate-ness of dress will be judged).  For the Sportswear category, contestants must wear a baseball themed outfit of choice.  These can be off the rack or custom made.

This is a natural pageant, therefore no falls, flippers, or wiglets are allowed.  Hair & Makeup should be nicely styled and age appropriate.  We do not have hair and makeup vendors on staff during natural prelims.  No pageant cupcakes dresses allowed and rhinestones (if any) should be very limited on attire.  Rhinestones can be a part of your Sportswear outfits but should be limited on Beauty attire.

*We follow front "T" model formation and are a natural pageant.  We focus on the contestants confidence on stage, their overall appearance and if they are enjoying themselves while on stage.  Clothing does not have to be expensive or lavish as long as it fits the contestants personality and they love it!!  The most important thing to remember is to relax on stage and have fun and most importantly, SMILE!!
