Citrus Model Look 2023 International Competition Information
2023 ALL NEW NATURAL National Citrus Pageant and Model Search
Hello Citrus Contestants, Friends, and Family Members,
I am excited that you will be a part of the 27th ALL NEW NATURAL National Citrus Pageant and Model Search. This year, we have decided to become a Natural Pageant. For those who have participated in the past, the only changes are with the younger age divisions (0-11 months, 12-12 months, 2-3 years, 4-6 years, and 7-9 years.) The older divisions (ages 10-12 years, 13-15 years, 16-19 years, 20-29 years, 30-49 years, 50 years-up) will remain the same. All changes are explained in the International Information booklet.
NEW: There is absolutely no make-up/hair extensions allowed on babies to age 9 years of age.
Like the Old Hawaiian Tropic Pageant use to be, we will hove 2 Beauty Specialists backstage to swab faces to ensure there is no make-up or hair extensions on all 0-11 months, 12-23 months, 2-3 years, 4-6 years, and 7-9 years contestonts.
We will award a King or Queen in each of the 16 Age Divisions. The King or Queen in each of the 16 Age Divisions will be determined by 3 Categories: Beauty Line-up/Interview, Citrus Wear, and Formal Attire. We will also award 2 OVERALL Titles in the entire Pageant. There will be one OVERALL Title in the 0-6 years and one OVERALL Title in the 7 years and up age divisions. The 2 OVERALL Titles will be the highest combined score of Beauty Line-up/Interview, Citrus Wear, and Formal Attire combined with the 8 Optional Competitions: Prettiest/Handsome Face, Prettiest/Most Handsome Eyes, Hair, Smile, Most Photogenic, Best Dressed, Best Composite and Best Portfolio. For the overall Citrus titles, we drop the two lowest optional competition scores. We add the remaining six optional compeititions to determine the overall titles.
