Pageantry

A beauty pageant is a competition that has traditionally focused on the physical beauty, personality, intelligence, talent, and answers to judges’ questions as judged criteria. Winners of beauty contests are often called beauty queens. Children’s beauty pageants mainly focus on beauty, gowns, sportswear modelling, talent, and personal interviews. Adult and teen pageants focus on makeup, hair and gowns, swimsuit modelling, and personal interviews. Possible awards include titles, tiaras or crowns, sashes, savings bonds, and cash prizes.
