PRELIMINARY COMPETITION CATEGORIES

Each contestant participates in an individual interview with our panel of judges.

There are typically 5-7 judges on a panel.  

PRIVATE INTERVIEW

Interview Details:

Interview will begin with a self-introduction not to exceed 30 seconds.  The body of the interview will be a combination of questions from information given on your fact sheet as well as current events. (This can be anything from war to reality TV questions to questions about your platform.)  The interview concludes with a 30-second opportunity to make a final statement to the judges of “Why you’d like to be Miss Plus America Elite.” As well as any information you’d like the judges to know that wasn’t covered in the interview itself.

Interview Attire:  

The attire for the interview is business casual. You may wear a suit or a skirt and blouse, or jacket with a skirt or a dress. Shirts should be pastel pink or white and not include spaghetti straps. If you wear a dress, it must be black.

You will wear this same outfit for your panel interview. If in doubt, go with your more conservative choice. You are not seeking a sexy look. You are seeking a classy look.)
