May I seek a sponsor?
You may seek sponsors or you may pay the entry fee yourself.

My state is not casting for the title I want, how do I enter?
If there is no casting scheduled for your state and your title is available, you may enter at large and go directly to nationals. At-large delegates represent their state without first competing at a preliminary pageant or casting, you get custom crown, rhinestone edged sash and state title and go directly to nationals representing your state.

My state is casting but I want to skip the casting and go directly to nationals, can I do this?
Yes. If a Casting Call event is scheduled for your state and you do not want to compete for the title but pay for it directly, you must pay for the title 30 days prior to the Casting Call event and the title will be yours, ONLY if there are no other paid contestants already registered at the state casting. If you wish to forgo the casting please check the appropriate box on the application and send in a minimum deposit of $195.00. Your crown and sash will not be sent to you until the full fee is paid. Crowns generally take about 2-3 weeks to come in. Sashes usually take 4-6 weeks. At-large fees for American Beauty titles are $495.00 plus $100 ad page and At-large fees for US International titles are $595.00 plus $100 ad page.

What forms of payment are accepted?
Payment may be made by personal check, money order, or credit card via PayPal

Is a payment plan available?
For state castings the entry fee must be paid in full 30 days prior to the event. Payments can be made in any amounts until then. You are responsible for keeping track of your payments. If you are opting to compete at large you may make payments as well but a $195 deposit is required to initiate a payment plan and hold the title. Payments of any amount must be made at least every 30 days until the total fee is received. Failure to remit payment every 30 days may result in loss of title and fees paid. Delegate’s title will be assigned and the crown and sash will be ordered only after payment has been received in full.

If I am unable to compete, will I be issued a refund or a credit?
No. Due to extremely high production costs, we are not able to return any payments. Please make sure you are able to participate in the casting or national pageant before sending any funds. All fees paid to are NOT REFUNDABLE and NOT TRANSFERABLE in full or in part for under any circumstances. This includes entry fees, advertising fees, pageant admission tickets and any other fees paid.

If I hold an American Beauty or US International title, can I compete in other systems?
Yes, in fact, we encourage it!. We only ask that the state and regional winners compete in nationals and they come back and crown their successor if a state casting call event is held. If you are a national titleholder, you are bound by the required 12 appearances in your American Beauty crown and sash during your year of your reign.
