2020 Pageant Schedule, Registration & General Information:
Cost of registration is $80 "cash" on the day of the pageant or $65 if you mail the paperwork in with a money order (no checks or cash in mail). You will need proof of age (copy of birth certificate, drivers license, passport) and proof of KY residency (copy of school papers, mail, drivers license, or similar). No out of State contestants need apply, they are excluded by State mandate. I posted a schedule for pageant day, however, if you are registering on pageant day, please come 30 minutes earlier to complete paperwork before you set up in the dressing area. In other words, no one that hasn't registered will not be allowed in dressing area until the completion of the Registration. IMPORTANT: If ALL the papers aren't signed by the parents they will be considered INCOMPLETE and will not be allowed to compete.
Before the pageant the contestant should designate one person to be her "helper". That helper will be the ONLY person besides the contestant allowed in the dressing area at any time before, during, and after the pageant, and must wear a mask at all times while in there. There will only be certain times the helper is allowed, so please abide by the rules. Once the contestants have been escorted to the dressing area to prepare for competition, we ask that you all stay inside the dressing area until it's time to go on stage. No hanging out the door, going to and from the restroom, audience area, concession, or running around visiting. Use that time to focus, relax and practice your introduction. Give yourself a good pep talk instead of being a busy body on pageant day!
There is a bio to fill out so those that will be doing that in the 30 minutes on pageant day start now thinking of your goals, favorite people, why you're a good friend, your achievements, and if you found money what would you do with it. That might help speed up getting the paperwork done. Good Luck! I look forward to meeting everyone. Any questions, just call me! Thanks, Sondra Cawthon 502-758-2212.
I'm happy to finally be able to announce the date of our 2020 Oldham County Fair Preteen, Teen & Miss Pageants, Saturday, SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2020. The Pageants will begin with the Preteen at 2 pm, then the Teen at 4:00 pm, and finally the Miss at 7:00 pm.
We will be following CDC GUIDELINES. After each Pageant the Venue & dressing area will be re-sanitized and wiped down for the next audience & group of competitors. Sanitation Stations will be available and everyone is encouraged to use them. Everyone 6 years and over will be required to wear a face covering while attending the event. And, of course, social distancing will be a very high priority during the competition.
Arrivals will be as follows:
PRETEEN- arrive no later than 1:30 pm, dressed in a floor length gown. The competition will include either a short interview or an "on stage question", parade of contestants, introduction, and walk in gown. Followed by awards presentation, photographs, then exiting the venue of all contestants and guests, in preparation for the next pageant.
TEEN- arrive no earlier than 3:15, and no later than 3:30, dressed in a knee or tea length Cocktail dress & bring your floor length gown with you to change into. The Competition will consist of the same as Preteen, but the interview, parade and intro will be presented in your cocktail dress (no pants, no shorts). The stage walk will be in the long gown. Followed by awards presentation, photos, then exiting the venue by everyone for preparation of the next pageant.
MISS- arrive no earlier than 6:20 and no later than 6:30 dressed in a knee or tea length Cocktail dress (no pants, no shorts). Bring your swimwear and floor length gown with you to change into. The competition will consist of the same as TEEN, plus the swimwear portion, and the stage walk will be in your floor length gown.
As this is an OPEN TO ALL COUNTY'S PAGEANT, THERE IS NO WAY TO ESTIMATE HOW MANY CONTESTANTS WILL BE REGISTERED, THEREFORE, THE PAGEANT "START TIMES" ARE APPROXIMATE DEPENDING ON THE PAGEANT BEFORE AND THE LENGTH OF TIME IT TOOK. SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US!
At this time there are no restrictions as to how many guests each competitor may have as long as we follow the CDC Guidelines, but if the Governor changes that of course we will have to abide by the rules. There will be NO SAVING OF SEATS AT ALL. PLEASE DON'T MAKE US HAVE TO HAVE ANYONE ESCORTED AWAY. Please help us stop the spreading, and help us follow the CDC Guidelines.
