American Teen Miss Pageant - May 30th 2011, 06:03 PM

One of my goals is to be in the American Teen Miss Pageant. I would love to be able to do it because it would help boost my confidence talking to people. I'm extremely shy, so it would be a great experience. I also really want to represent my state (Wisconsin <3). The only thing holding me back is money. My family doesn't have much money, and I don't know if my mom would be willing to pay that much for a pageant. I'm really not sure how I'm going to do it. I've always wanted to be in a pageant, and this is probably my only opporitunity. Does anyone know how I could try to persuade my family into letting me do it?

I don't ever wanna feel like I did that day. Take me to the place I love; take me far away.

For most pageants, you get people in your area to sponsor you - local businesses, individual people... Whoever you can to help you. I would contact the pageant itself and ask them what you should do. You don't need to be rich to be in a pageant. Most pageants are scholarship programs as well, so if you win and get a scholarship, then it's less money toward college! You COULD try to push that angle as well.

Contact the pageant and ask them for their suggestions on how to find sponsors. Do a little research and see how much it'll cost (including application/competition fees, wardrobe (estimate), traveling expenses, etc.), then start contacting those sponsors!
