Interview/Personal Introduction:

  • Interviews will be two minutes long with five different judges. We want interview to be a fun and relaxing experience to help the girls gain confidence and social skills.

  • There will not be any trick questions or surprises. If the participant is non-verbal, they can have a representative with them present in the interview room. Question difficulty will depend on age.

  • Examples of questions that may be asked:

    • "What is your favorite animal and why?"

    • "What do you like to do for fun?"

    • "What is your biggest goal in life?"


  • Talent is now incorporated into the final show. Talent is still optional and will not factor into the participants' score.

  • At the end of the show, girls who participated in talent will receive an additional medal for their efforts!

  • Talent must be no longer than 1 minute and 30 seconds!
