Admission ticket wristbands will be given out at National Check-in. These wristbands will admit the holder to the final pageant for one age division. There is no charge to watch preliminary competitions or optional competitions. These competitions include preliminary Evening Wear, Speech, Talent, Cheerleading, Acting and Modeling. Contestants do not need a wristband to attend any competition of any age division. Everyone else needs a wristband ticket except children under age 3. There will be no reserved seating at the National Pageant except for National Hostesses, National Cover Girls, National Queens and their families. Admission tickets may be purchased at check-in or at the door for the same price. Families who have two sisters competing receive a special discount. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the details.
The contestant in each age division who sells the most tickets will be introduced on stage at the Pageant Finals for her age division and will receive a trophy or plaque for Most Ticket Sales. Every contestant who sells ten tickets, will receive a beautiful rhinestone crown pin. In addition to the crown pin, each contestant who sells 25 or more tickets will receive $1 for each ticket she sells. (25 tickets sold-$25; 40 tickets sold-$40; 100 tickets sold-$100, etc.)
