Do I have to have children?
No. Having children is not one of the basic requirements for entry.
Am I too old to win - Am I too young to win?
The judges are looking for a beautiful, well rounded, articulate woman.
Age is NOT a factor.
Is there a height requirement?
There is no height requirement to enter or win. Our state winners have
ranged in heights from 4’11 to 6’.
I’ve never entered a
pageant before; do I have a chance to win?
Yes. It truly depends on the individual. Every one is given a fair
opportunity to win!
What kind of woman enters the pageant?
Mrs. America attracts women of all ages, vocations, and backgrounds.
There are auto mechanics and aeronautical engineers, doctors and
lawyers, aspiring models and actresses, wives and mothers, as well as
traditional homemakers. The one thing they all have in common is that
they are married and have an eagerness to compete.
Do you have to be married a certain number of years to win?
No. We have had winners who have been married as little as 7 months and
as long as 18 years.
Do I need a performing talent?
No. We believe that being married is talent enough.
Will I be judged on community service?
No. Realistically most married women are extremely busy with their
careers and families; they are contributing to the community by virtue
of serving their own families.
Is there an entry fee?
Yes. We encourage our city and county titleholders to raise the entry
fee in their communities. After all they have been exclusively selected
to represent the married women in their areas. The entry fee covers the
cost of doing business such as renting a theatrical facility, designing
sets and music, as well as printing, advertising and phone expenses.
