While our program places an emphasis on excellence, achievement, and personal growth, we also strive to make the pageant experience FUN! The pageant is a three-day weekend event, and will be held September 8 -10, 2017 at The Vets, in Providence.
On the first day, our Teen and Miss contestants will register-in and then have their Preliminary Interview. During the interviews, each contestant has the opportunity to meet individually with the entire judging panel for approximately three minutes. Each contestant has the opportunity to convince the judges she is right for the job of MISS RHODE ISLAND USA or MISS RHODE ISLAND TEEN USA.
The weekend begins early Saturday morning when our Teen and Miss Contestants arrive and check-in. Throughout the morning and afternoon rehearsals will be on-going preparing the contestants for that evening’s stage shows – the Miss Rhode Island Teen USA presentation show and the Miss Rhode Island USA presentation show. During the Presentation Show, each contestant is `presented` to the judges in the preliminary swimsuit (Miss Contestants) / activewear (Teen contestants) and evening gown competitions.
The next day begins again with rehearsals and concludes with the final competitions. At the end of the final show, we will have a new Miss Rhode Island USA & Miss Rhode Island Teen USA for 2018. The winner of MISS RHODE ISLAND USA will advance to the nationally televised MISS USA pageant, and the winner of the MISS RHODE ISLAND TEEN USA title will advance to the MISS TEEN USA pageant, seen by a worldwide web audience. Should MISS RHODE ISLAND USA go on to win MISS USA, she would then advance to the ultimate contest… the internationally televised MISS UNIVERSE pageant.
Contestants will be given a more detailed schedule with times as the pageant gets closer.
