NEW JERSEY QUEENS AT NATIONALS

We trust that we will provide you with additional information that will answer many of your questions. Each year we work to provide a fair environment in which women have the opportunity to compete not against others, but challenge themselves. We trust the pageant encourages the contestants to build self-confidence, individual pride, and a greater self-awareness.
Each contestant should be able to improve their ability to communicate effectively, to speak in front of people comfortably, and to stand up for what they believe in. We encourage our contestants to find causes or issues they feel strongly about, and to become involved in organizations that speak closest to their hearts. Every woman who enters the pageant has different ideals and goals and strives hard in their personal quest for excellence.
We are pleased that a majority of contestants each year have never participated in a pageant and they find it to be a rewarding and worthwhile experience. Many contestants have won their first time out, and many others return because of the positive experience they had in our program. We like to think that each contestant walks away from our program with an invigorating perspective about the world around her, and more importantly, the world ahead of her.
Our philosophy for the New Jersey State Pageant programs are not about encouraging women and young girls to "win" a pageant, but to encourage them to develop life skills that will ultimately help them win in life by being their personal best in everything they do.
