Glendive - Applications are due June 1 for the Miss Montana Volunteer and Miss Montana Teen Volunteer pageant, a statewide service oriented scholarship program seeking to empower young women through education and opportunity to be held July 22-24 in Glendive. In the inaugural year with a new program that reflects Montana values, the former Miss Montana Scholarship Program board is pleased to affiliate with the Miss Volunteer America Pageant where our Montana titleholder will compete in Tennessee, May 4-7, 2022.
The contestants for Miss Montana Volunteer must be between 17-25, a Montana resident or full-time student at a Montana college, born a female, not married or have children, and be able to participate in all categories of the competition. Contestants should apply to [email protected] by June 1.
All Miss contestants receive at least a $900 scholarship and Teens at least $300 up to $5,000 in various categories.
The Miss Montana Teen Volunteer must be between 13 by July 22 up to 17 by Dec 31, 2021. She is crowned Friday, July 23. On Thursday, July 21 along with preliminary competitions, Miss Montana Pre-teen Volunteer Pageant contestants, age 9-12, will be judged on fun fashion, on stage question, fitness and party dress.
The Miss MT Volunteer and Teen Volunteer preliminary scoring is 40% interview, 20% talent, 20% fitness and wellness, 20% evening gown. The final night scoring will also consider job readiness and on stage question.
During the private 12-minute (8 minute for teens) interview with the panel of five judges, the contestant will be able to share her personality, achievements, aspirations and explain why she is the best person for the job, and her passion for her platform. Scoring will not be based on a contestant’s opinion on a subject discussed, but rather, the contestant’s ability to share her opinion and understanding of the issue.
The talent competition includes but is not limited to the performing arts and can include demonstrations of illusion, athletic skill, monologue, speed painting or an avocation performance and must be 90 seconds or less. No other person may be on stage during a contestant’s talent performance but props are permissible.
The Fitness and Wellness competition is designed to demonstrate the contestant’s healthy lifestyle. The focus of the competition is not on a Contestant’s size or shape, but, rather, the ability of a contestant to challenge herself to achieve higher levels of health, energy and wellness of body, mind and spirit.
The Evening Gown competition is designed to feature the young woman wearing the dress, rather than the dress itself, taking into consideration the contestant’s composure, poise and stage presence.
The contestants stay in host homes during the week of rehearsals and leadership training, are fed by community organizations and businesses and treated like royalty during their week in Glendive.
