Submit the Preliminary Application form here and once we have received your Preliminary Application information, someone from our organization will contact you to verify that you meet the eligibility requirements to become an official contestant in the State pageant.
NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY! Some young women have taken home the crown on their first attempt while some women have competed more than once to win the crown. What you do need to compete is self-confidence and the belief that you are worthy to be the next titleholder!
While all of our contestants are talented in many different ways, there is no talent requirement to compete in the MISS DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA USA or MISS DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA TEEN USA Pageants.
Some of the contestants that have been crowned MISS DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA USA or MISS DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA TEEN USA have entered on beginners’ charm while others have devoted much of their lives to competing in pageants. Pageantry is like a sport for some but not all, although proper planning and preparation are required to do your best. As such, the best form of preparation is knowing for yourself, your strengths and those areas which need improvement, then work at them all! The competition is fierce, but ultimately you’re competing with yourself!
All contestants will be scored in the competition categories of: Personal Interview, Fitness Wear (Teens only)/ Swimsuit (Miss only), and Evening Gown. Contestant semi-finalists will also participate in On-Stage Interview.
Our judges are selected from a variety of diverse backgrounds, including, but certainly not limited to the fashion industry, beauty industry, public relations and marketing, business, media, and the nonprofit sector. We pride ourselves in selecting judges that uphold the highest standards and values in their personal and professional lives to select titleholders that best embody the values and mission of the DC USA Organization and MISS USA Organization.
