What is Preliminary Pageant?
A prelim pageant is a small pageant to introduce you into the system. These are lower cost pageants held in each province, and there will usually be 2-3 held before the provincial finals. Prelims are a simple pageant that last a few short hours with casual wear, beauty wear, personal introduction (ages 4+ only) and on-stage question (ages 4+ only). Each age group will have a main winner and that girl will win fees off the provincial pageant.
What is a Provincial Finals Pageant?
A provincial finals pageant will be held in the spring, and the top 2 in each age group have the opportunity to attend the National Pageant. You do not have to attend a prelim pageant to attend the provincials, but it is recommended so you have the practice and stage time before Provincials. Queen winners of the provincial pageant will have their main entry fee waived to Nationals.
Queen winners will be crowned "Baby Miss BC" or "Little Miss Alberta" (title changes with age and province). 2nd Place Princess Winners will be crowned "Baby Princess Nova Scotia" or "Young Princess Ontario", etc..). You will receive a gorgeous custom sash with this title to wear to Nationals and show off your title!
