We Limit Each Age Division To Only 25 Delegates, So More Time & Attention Can Be Given To Each Contestant From Our Judges & Staff!  Our Goal Is To Be More Than A Competition...We Want To Give You THE ELITE EXPERIENCE!

ELIGIBILITY

You must live, work or attend school in the state or region you are representing.  We will, however, allow multiple delegates from the same state to compete.  Available titles will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and will be limited to twenty five per age division.  Must not be pregnant or have a child.  Must not be married, ever been married or have had a marriage annulled.

DELEGATE EXPECTATIONS

Once you receive your crown and sash, your Elite journey has begun.  We encourage you to go into your community and share with others how you can make a difference, one rhinestone at a time.  Please dress and conduct yourself as if you are preparing to meet the judges.  Please make sure your attire is appropriate for the event and contains no offensive language.  Please post to your social media accounts and use #AmericasEliteMiss.  When posting, please make sure it is grammatically correct and that it contains no offensive content.  Remember, you are not only representing ELITE but you are also branding yourself.

SPORTSMANSHIP

Each delegate is expected to treat staff, judges, hotel staff and all other delegates with respect.  Each family and/or friend of the delegate will be held to the same rules.  Any behavior that is deemed as bad sportsmanship, and witnessed by an ELITE staff member, will be addressed and could result in disqualification of the delegate.

SASH & EMBROIDERY RULES

You have the option to add your name to the back of your sash, however, this may only be done through our embroidery service.  If you would like to take advantage of this, it must be selected on your registration application.  It will not be an option to add your name, after your sash has been ordered and/or received.  There is a $20 fee associated.

REQUIRED FEES TO COMPETE AT ELITE!

Our system is appointed titles only.  Once we reach maximum capacity, the following year, applications will go through a selection process to decide who the twenty-five girls, per age division, will be.  Returning delegates, from the previous year, will receive a guaranteed spot.  Delegates who skip a year, will not receive this same guarantee.  Controlling our numbers is a crucial part to our goal as a pageant system.  We want to guarantee Y.O.U. that we will always be able to keep that personal touch at our National event!  We truly want this to be an ELITE and unforgettable experience for each of you!
