Miss Gold Country Judging Criteria
1. PRIVATE INTERVIEW (25% OF TOTAL SCORE)
Each candidate participates in an individual 10-minute press conference-style interview with our panel of judges (10 minutes at the state and national competitions). There are typically 5 to 7 judges on a panel. Candidates are questioned on their background as presented on their fact sheet, their educational and career goals, their opinions on current events and social issues, and their interests, hobbies and extracurricular activities.
2. TALENT (40% OF TOTAL SCORE)
Candidates perform a 90-second routine of their own choosing. Some possible talents include all types of singing, dancing, gymnastics, instrumental music, dramatic or comedy monologues, baton twirling and ventriloquism. Other talents that can be performed solo on a stage are also possible. Phone or e-mail us if you have a question about your talent presentation.
3. ON-STAGE INTERVIEW (15% OF TOTAL SCORE)
4. EVENING WEAR/SOCIAL IMPACT INITIATIVE (20% OF TOTAL SCORE)
Each candidate appears on stage in an outfit of her own choosing, representative of what she would wear to a formal “after five” social event. Pant suits, cocktail dresses and evening gowns are all appropriate for this phase of the competition.
