Pageant Tips: Increase Your Chances of Being the Winner

Every lady who enters a pageant has a goal, hopes, and a dream. Whether she wants to fund her college education, make her mark on the world for the better, or have an avenue for raising awareness for her favorite charity or other organization, a pageant can make it all a reality. Since only one woman gets to wear the crown, here are some tips that could help you improve your chances of being the winner.

Act Like You Already Won

It is so easy to see all of the contestants and start comparing yourself to them. This is a big mistake. You won the chance to participate in the pageant, so you know you have some super qualities that the judges are looking for. Be sure to act as if you have already won the pageant, and you will find yourself keeping the confidence that got you where you are to begin with.

Stage Performance Preparations

The spotlight will be on you many times during the pageant. Make sure that you rehearse your talent show number many times before your performance. Most contestants are nervous when they are on stage alone, and trying to remember your routine will only add to the mix. Also, have you considered buying a beautiful pageant dress that will help you win? That too will push your points up. 

Gearing Up for the Interview

Contestants are not aware of what question they will be asked for the personal interview portion of the pageant. For this reason, it is imperative that you conduct practice interviews with family and friends. Have them ask you different questions based on world issues, environmental issues, and what you will do as winner of the pageant to make things better. The important thing is to be comfortable talking to the public and being able to think on your feet.

Takes Notes from Past Winners

If possible, you should take the time to read up on past winners of various pageants. Get a glimpse of how they won their pageant, so you can mimic what they have done. You can find interviews and articles about pageant winners on the Internet, in magazines, and some have even written autobiographies.

Stay in Shape, Stay Healthy

Personal appearance accounts for many points you will score at a pageant. While it is important to stay in shape, it is also important to stay healthy. Don't binge diet for a pageant. Keep in mind that wearing a bathing suit or fitness outfit during a pageant is not about picking the best body on the stage, but about who is comfortable enough with their body to walk around in these sorts of outfits. Judges can tell if you feel confident or embarrassed.

Have a Solid Platform

Contestants need to show the judges that they have a platform, a cause that they believe in and work to raise awareness with. Make sure you know your platform very well, and can state facts about the charity or organization you support. Judges want to know that you are knowledgeable and caring. Winning the pageant is not just about you, but how that status can help you help others.

Participating in a pageant can be a lot of fun. Try to make friends with the other girls who are contestants. This will help all of you release some of the stress that you are feeling. The truth is, many women participate in multiple pageants and may never win the crown. Hopefully, these tips will help you gain an advantage to take you all the way.
