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!
