GUIDELINES RECAP
By registering, paying the entrance fee, and being "accepted", this is a basic contract where you do agree to follow
our simple guidelines, adhere to deadlines and always be a good role model and a good sport. You make choices to
do appearances and be involved. Unlike other pageants, you have the choice to be an upbeat titleholder and make
appearances or community service efforts when you are able. The pageant does not arrange appearances, nor does
it pay any fees or transportation. We realize you have other activities in your life but you are required to make a
minimum of 2 appearances per month throughout your reign.

The decision of the Judges is deemed final; please accept the scores as final from the panel of judges. Please urge
your friends and family to respect the decision of the judges. The Director of the pageant has no say in who wins;
it is left entirely to the judges.


Everyone in your party is always a good sport. We reserve the right to refuse entry to any event or to rescind any
title for poor sportsmanship or negative behavior or actions on the part of any contestant/national or international
titleholder or anyone in their party. We feel it is not necessary to expand on poor sportsmanship. ALWAYS be
positive and upbeat and respectful of everyone around you at any function, appearance, pageant, etc. and
hopefully in your own personal lives. We are confident that no matter what the outcome, YOU WILL HAVE A
POSITIVE EXPERIENCE. Congratulate ALL new International queens, just as you will want to be congratulated by
them if YOU win!!! Should you win please be advised that we are only interested in queens who want to be loyal to
the Miss American Nation Pageant system and are willing to devote a full year to your title. If you do not
win, consider returning. It’s a GREAT way to stay involved with ANP Pageants!
