  • OOOh that sounds like so much fun :) How big were you wanting to go? Just something in the back yard or something bigger where you would need to rent a space? If you are going bigger, You might try asking local businesses-especially salons, clothes stores, etc.-to sponsor it.

  • We have a few places like an old school house and a community center that will let people do things like this for free,Im pretty lucky there.lol I am looking at the age groups of newborn to 13. I dont know alot about the titles and things like that.We were thinking about having carwashes and bake sales to raise the money for the crowns and things.Then I can put the entrance fees toward the next one,if it goes well.lol

  • 1 you need a name, and copyrighting it or trademarking it would be a good idea, research the name well some pageants get mad if you use theirs, even if you didnt know it was taken.
    2. make sure you have enough money (its gonna cost a bit) for crowns, banners, trophies ect.
    3. The parents of the girls who dont win a big title (some not all) will be angry and will bad mouth you pageant, so be ready for that.
    4. be available and able to answer any and all questions
    5. are you thinking of doing a program book or not? You'll need to figure in the cost for that too if you do use one.
    there are a lotof things to think about before you get started. Hope it works out for you.
