National Elite Pageants is a prestigious pageant system for poised, confident, beautiful girls who want to make a difference. They provide a stress-free, exciting, and high-quality pageant experience, whether this is a contestant’s first pageant or if they are a seasoned competitor.
Paige will represent Texas at the 2020 National Elite Pageant which will be held in Houston Texas on July 17 through July 20th, 2020 at The Westin Houston Memorial City on 945 Gessner Rd. Houston, TX 77024.
The National Elite Pageant was voted as a Top 10 National Pageants by PageantPlanet.com.
Paige will compete in the following competitions:
- Personal Interview – Each contestant will have a personal interview with each of the judges.
- Fun Fashion – Where they show off their personal style and personality with a fun fashion outfit
- Formal Wear – They select a gown of their choice to be judged on poise, confidence, and presentation.
- On-Stage Question – Contestants will be asked one final age-appropriate question on stage
Paige will also compete in a State Costume competition held on July 17th on the main stage followed by a welcome party. This is a free optional that all contestants are required to compete in. Each contestant will walk the runway in a costume that represents her state. This has no bearing on the overall score and will have a different set of judges for this competition. The best costume in each age division will be announced at the optional awards ceremony.
Additionally, each contestant will be a part of an opening number and parade of contestants at the beginning of the final show.
