All contestants, Tiny Miss through Queen divisions, will compete on the same day, Saturday April 20th. Interviews will be during the day and the queen contest will start at 5:00.

If a contestant is late for an interview, that contestant will be moved until the end of interviews and IF time permits they will be interviewed by the judges after all other contestants.
All contestants please enter through the cafeteria door and report to the cafeteria. Parents must wait in the cafeteria for contestants to get done. No contestants, parents, or family will be allowed in the gymnasium as it will be ready for the evening event. Assigned people will be present to help each age division to their interview rooms.
Admission is $2.00 at the door. All attendees must purchase a ticket. This money goes back to the Town of Orleans for hosting our Orleans Dogwood Festival.
All contestants will be introduced and walk the stage (there is no runway this year).
Only Little Miss Dogwood, Jr. Miss & Queen Contestants will be asked an on-stage question.
A Queen and a court of a minimum of 2 princesses will be chosen in each category based on the judges’ scores. All judge’s decisions are final, and we ask that you are respectful of their decision.
