It is important to us for our event to always have a personal touch. To help accomplish this, we will limit the number of delegates in our National Pageant. In 2021, we will close registration once we receive 180 delegates (first-come, first-served). In 2022, our 2021 returning delegates will receive the opportunity to register before we open to the public.
**NEW ** Ms. Age Group: Contestant can be married, or have been married and can have children.
Age Up Option: If birth date falls 30 days prior or 30 days post National Event (June 7th 2021 - August 7th, 2021) - contestant will have the opportunity to advance up to the next age group. Under NO circumstances can any contestant step down an age group. This must be selected at the time of registration, if opting to advance up to the next age group.
Note: Cash awards & gift certificates are based on the total number of contestants who participate at Nationals. Click here for more information and for a breakdown of the cash award & gift certificate requirements. (Link Coming Soon)

NO OPENING NUMBER DRESS EXPENSE!
We will still have an opening number production that will highlight the delegates without any extra expense to you. Absolutely no opening number attire to purchase for our National Event. We know how difficult changing attire from opening number to evening gown can be, so we have completely eliminated that stress for you! There will be no outfit changes during our Final Pageant. Also, our opening number production will not require our delegates to learn a dance routine. Our choreographer (and co-owner) was a TOP 12 finalist on America's Got Talent and will be using her choreography and performance background to plan a truly innovative opening number experience for Elite Nationals 2021!
No additional fees, tickets, gifts or various expenses are required to compete at Elite. Once you pay your National Entry Fee, that's it! In addition, your entire family can attend our events and National Party for FREE! We do, however, offer optional opportunities and upgrades for anyone who is interested.
Delegate will enter the room and give a quick introduction to our National Judges - Name, Title & Age Group (Example: Gwyn Keddy, America's Elite Missouri, Pre-Teen). You're welcome to create any variation of the above information but not allowed to include anything additional. This introduction is a simple way for you to showcase your confidence! Following the introduction, each delegate will get a personal round robin style interview with each National Judge. In addition, it is important at Elite that our judges get the necessary tools to help them get to know each delegate on a deeper level. To help accomplish this, they will have access to your bio/picture submission to assist with developing questions and getting to know you better. Take advantage of this unique opportunity and submit information/photos that truly showcase who you are and demonstrate what makes you a great fit for the America's Elite Miss National Title.
New for 2021 - Photos for online bio will be submitted through our upload link. Picture page is no longer required.
Confidence, Delivery, Knowledge & Overall Impression.
Trendy dress, skirt/top or jumpsuit. We do not require a traditional suit or pantyhose. Shoes should be age appropriate and compliment outfit. Small heels or flats for Jr. Princess & Princess age groups.
