Each contestant should be able to communicate effectively, speak in front of people comfortably, and stand up for what they believe. We encourage our contestants to find causes or issues they feel strongly about, and become involved in organizations that speak closest to their hearts. Each young lady who enters will find her individual ideals and goals, and strive hard in her personal quest for excellence.
Many contestants each year have never participated in a pageant and they find it to be a rewarding and worthwhile experience. Some 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 young woman walks away from our program a little more ready to deal with the world around her, and more importantly, the world ahead of her.
Our philosophy for the Miss Intercontinental United States program is to encourage young women to develop skills that will ultimately help them win in life by being their personal best in everything they do.

Each Contestant will compete in three equal phases of preliminary competition: Interview, Swimsuit and Evening Gown. The results from these preliminary phases of competition are added up, and the contestants with the highest composite scores become semifinalists. The number of semifinalists will be determined by the total number of contestants in the competition and is typically between 10 and 15.
Scoring is based on the following:
Interview : Pageant judges spend time with each delegate to learn about her successes, talents, goals and ambitions. Attention is focused on her poise, charm, self - confidence and her ability to communicate, as well as the substance of her answers. Preliminary interviews are conducted individually in front of the entire judging panel in a private and closed setting. You will have a two to three-minute interview with the panel of 5 or 7 judges. It's very comfortable and conversational. Contestants are judged on their communication skills, and personality. They are NOT judged on their opinions or personal beliefs.
Swimsuit : Attention is focused on physical fitness, figure, stage presence and the confidence with which each contestant carries herself. Numerical measurements are not considered in the judging. There is no perfect body type!
Evening Gown : Each contestant wears a gown she has chosen for herself. Attention is focused on each contestant’s overall appearance, self-confidence, and the beauty she brings to the gown of her choice. She is evaluated on grace, poise, style, stage presence, and overall-impression. Judges are instructed to evaluate the contestant, not the dress she is wearing.
Opening number is an upbeat fashion theme. Dress color is White. Contact us for more information on opening attire.
