The Miss Circle City Indy competition recognizes the impact social media has on our world. ANY negative image portrayed by a contestant or queen will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately and could lead to immediate disqualification. Contestant presence online will be monitored closely, including photos and other posts.
All contestants except for those in the Mrs., Ms., and Elegant Ms. Division must be unmarried and without children. ALL contestants will have clear criminal records other than minor or petty offenses.
The best average placement score will be crowned the Miss Circle City Indy Queen for her age division. 1st runner-up for each age division will also be recognized. Contestants are scored as follows:
Baby Division: Outfit of Choice, Personality, Overall appearance—50 points Formal Wear, Personality, Ages 2 and up Onstage Question Overall—50 points
ON-STAGE QUESTION: 0-10 points Poise/Presence, 0-10 points quality of answer.
In the event of a tie, judges will deliberate and determine final placement of contestants.
Contestants will be placed in the appropriate division based on their age and other qualifying factors as of January 1st of the contest year. Participants will not be allowed to move to another division for any reason. **Miss CCI Staff reserves the right to consolidate an age group based on # of entries
Awards will be given for best hair, best eyes, and best smile. This competition is judged by a separate panel and has no bearing on the outcome of the overall pageant. The “Best Pageant Spirit” award is chosen by the Miss Circle City Indy staff and also has no bearing on the outcome of the final placements.
The Miss Circle City Indy pageant is a NATURAL competition and we are more interested in learning about the girl INSIDE. For interview, all contestants should wear light, natural makeup. Heavier makeup is allowed during the final pageant. However, if a judge feels a contestant is “overdone”, she will be scored accordingly.
ATTIRE: Dresses with a low-cut neckline, slit in the skirt, or plunges in the back will be allowed. However, judges will be instructed to decide if any gown is outside the definition of “good taste” or age-appropriate, and then score accordingly. Please make sure undergarments as well are appropriate for selected wardrobe. Please keep all this information in mind with choosing your competition evening gown. Business professional wear is suggested for the interview portion of the pageant. A suit is not required – consider fashionable attire that would be worn to an executive job interview.
Unsportsmanlike conduct from ANY contestant or their guests will forfeit any prizes received and ban that contestant from potentially participating in future Miss Circle City Indy events.
The Miss Circle City Indy pageant title is a ONE YEAR COMMITMENT. All contestants (except for Queens ages 5 and under) should be aware that appearances average at minimum 1 event every month. If a titleholder misses an excessive number of consecutive appearances (as determined by our staff), it could result in loss of that title. We are honored to be partnered with a large number of worthy causes. All queens are required to attend all mandatory fundraisers and activities as outlined by the pageant staff. A schedule of appearances throughout the year will be given to winners and titleholders are EXPECTED to attend all required appearances. Optional appearances throughout the year may be scheduled. Any appearances that are not scheduled through the Miss Circle City Indy pageant must be approved by a director.
All payments must be made in advance of the competition. No Checks are accepted.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. Registration is subject to close at any time pending number of entries received.
