The optional categories are a great way to showcase your style and flair. Contestants must enter at least one optional as part of their competition. Optionals will be in a certain order and I will advise when it gets closer to time. If you are not competing in any optional that requires a wardrobe change—I.e. prettiest hair, prettiest eyes, prettiest smile, it is recommended that you keep your interview attire on. Physical attribute optionals will be judged by a line-up in each age division. The optionals that require the outfit changes will go first, you are to remain in your last outfit change (except 1980’s wear) and are ready for onstage line-up of physical attributes awards, and speech competition. The 1980’s wear will be last as that requires a little more wildness, as those of us that grew up in that era know. * You are allowed to have props in optionals this year!
** Please note at the hotel, you will receive a card and must write your outfit description on the card for the emcee to read—this will also be the case for casual wear.
