About Our Pageant
The Pageant Event
The Placer County Scholarship Pageants traditionally take place during the Placer County Fair, the third week in June.
Since 2015, when Up Pageantry began producing the pageant, the prize package has exceeded $6,000 annually. Our low entry fee covers all categories, including awards for Royal Court, Best Interview, Most Photogenic, People's Choice Photogenic, Miss Congeniality, Spirit Award, Community Service Award, and Essay Award (Essay competition is voluntary).
The scoring for each category is equally weighted. All categories compete in Personal Interview (which is panel style) and Gown or Party Dress. Some age divisions will have an impromptu question. Additional categories are for: MISS- Swimwear, TEEN-Athletic Wear, MRS/MS-Athletic Wear, and JUNIORS-Fun Fashion or Theme Wear.
Rehearsals begin after Orientation, which usually occurs the last week in April or first week of May. They occur once a week for 1 1/2 hours. We offer several "make ups" for girls who want extra practice or who have missed a regularly scheduled one. We also do NOT score you for "Reliability", i.e. "attendance".
