Welcome back to UNM, queen!
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted back into the USA National Miss Scholarship pageant!
The National Delegate Handbook that will guide you every step of the way as you prepare for nationals will be uploaded in the Delegate Login tab on our website soon (password unm24queen.) Once uploaded, be sure to read it in its entirety as we have some new and exciting information for nationals.
You are now on an exciting journey that is full of opportunities for you, as you prepare to compete at our award winning national pageant. Below are a just a few important notes as you get started on this exciting journey! Please note that we are a green organization, and are committed to providing all communication and paperwork in a paperless format.
NATIONAL PACKAGE PAYMENT
The National Package fee is due within 60 days of receiving your title (and no later than April 1 for January-March pageants) and should be paid through the delegate login. A $35 online processing fee is added to any payments made online.
At the top right of our website, you’ll see the Delegate Login (password unm24queen.) You should check the Delegate Login often as we will upload all pertinent information regarding nationals on this page. In the Delegate Login you will find the national handbook, forms, online payment options, and more resources, as they become available.
If you are a state queen in a state with a state pageant, you are required to sign up 10 new contestants for your state pageant during your reign. We expect all national delegates to recruit new contestants from their state as a way of promoting USA National Miss and their state title, while supporting their state director and state pageant program. All queens are required to actively promote USA National Miss on their social media weekly.
Once your returning queen fee has been paid in full, we will order your custom embroidered state sash if you are receiving a new title. Once ordered, please allow 4-8 weeks to receive your sash as it is custom ordered. Your sash will be shipped to the address you provided on your application. Please note: sashes are only ordered on the 1st of each month for titles that are paid in full.
For Miss, Teen and Jr. Teen, we ask that you follow the national Instagram page @usanationalmiss and like, comment and share our posts. Also be sure you’re following us on TikTok @usanationalmiss.There is no social media requirement for our Jr. Miss contestants (Preteen, Princess and Jr. Princess.) However, if you have a social media account, please follow us on @usanationalmissjr.
We encourage all queens to become involved in charities, activities and community events within your state wearing your state crown and sash – and to tag us on our official social media to be featured.
Please add your state title to your personal Instagram name so we can find you. We ask that you do not create an account specifically for your title but to utilize your existing personal account to document your UNM journey.
