Miss PowerDiva Pageant
September 26, 2004



 

Hello and congratulations on deciding to enter the very first Miss PowerDiva pageant! We’re very excited and full of anticipation about what is shaping up to be one of the biggest events we’ve ever planned! Miss PowerDiva contestants have a rigorous and grueling process to get through while in competition. You will be judged on personal interview, talent, evening gown and creative presentation! However the benefits to the winner are far worth the effort as you will be the new spokesperson to an organization that books and produces shows throughout the entire state of Michigan, and gains attention on a national level in the drag community. The person who represents us must be talented and well rounded enough to handle the many duties and benefits that come with the crown. Essentially, we are looking for a total package! If you have what it takes, then by all means we expect to see you on pageant day!




RULES AND REGULATIONS


1.  All contestants must have reached their 18th birthday, with valid government issued I.D.  This is a professional pageant but anyone is eligible to compete within the continental United States. All silicone will be allowed as long as contestants are male.

2.  Completed applications along with a $50.00 entry fee must be paid to Bradley Briegel by September 19, 2004. Contestants may still enter after this date with an entry fee of $75.00.

3.  All contestants must be present and on time to registration September 26, 2004 at Rumors Night Club 69 South Division Avenue Grand Rapids, MI at 4:00 P.M.  We will have registration and then casual interview immediately following.  We will move as quickly as possible through registration and interview, to allow time for you to prepare for the evening.  All contestants must be back at the bar by 8:30 P.M.  We will begin the contest at 9:30 P.M.
