Is This A Beauty Pageant?
No we are not a Beauty Pageant. We focus on giving each of our contestants a weekend where they can build skills and learn things that will help them in the future. Over the years our contestants have learned about sign language, communication with others, bicycle and road safety, internet safety, and have met with Safety NL and the RCMP just to name a few. They have had seminars from women in trades teaching them about other avenues of work for women in trades and each year they have seminars to help build confidence and work on public speaking.
We partner with organizations like the Shriners Childrens Hopsital and the STAND for Hannah organization giving our contestants the avenues to learn what it is like to give back, to learn about what it takes to stand up and be role models and to show that each and every one of them, even as a single individual they can make a difference and then showing them how taking that individual effort and becoming a group can make so much more of a difference.
We offer awards for public speaking, charity and fundraising, leadership, friendship, fitness and talent.
What Are The Benefits?
Our organization focuses on girls aged 10-12 and 13-18 in NL/Trinity-Conception. Our contestants come together for a weekend of confidence building, seminars, public speaking, interview skills, and charity fundraisers just to name a few things.
We reward and offer these young ladies the chance to be themselves, make new friendships, and gain memories and skills. It's a weekend of empowerment and showing these girls they can make a difference, not only individually but together as well. They make lifelong friendships and we stand together with them as they learn and grow into amazing women.
We give girls a chance to express themselves, gain confidence and learn to be happy with who they are and are becoming! We are all about helping young ladies grow to become tomorrows leaders!
I Hold Another Title - Can I Still Enter?
If you currently hold a local, town, or community title in NL you are still eligible to compete and represent your town or community at the Pageant. If you currently hold a Provincial or National title (or equivalent) from any pageant system you are not eligible to compete until after you have relinquished that title. If you held a Provincial or National title in the last year, you must provide written confirmation that your reign is over or show proof of relinquishment before you will be allowed to compete. Confirmation must be from an official of the organization associated with that title.
What Happens If I win?
If chosen as the winner, the pageant committee will work with you to make appearances and attend events and festivals during your reign. You may have the chance to be on TV, work with charities, attend events, ride in parades and become a role model for the youth of the province.
Each titleholder's reign is different and as individual as they are. You will meet with your co-ordinator and learn all about what being a titleholder is and encompasses and begin a journey of a lifetime as our newest titleholder!
Can I Sponsor The Pageant?
Absolutely! As a not-for-profit organization, our event is reliant on the support of donors, businesses and individuals. Individuals or Businesses have many choices on how to sponsor - they can sponsor the pageant itself, a contestant, an award, meals, prizes or travel and accommodations for our winners during their reign.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of sponsoring, you can me at 709-573-0685 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My daughter was a contestant in the Junior Miss Newfoundland and Labrador Pageant last year. When she first asked to do the Pageant I was hesitant. What I thought pageants were and what she actually experienced over this past weekend are two very different things.
This weekend was about empowering girls age 9 to 13. They learned about leadership, interview skills, woman in trades, they even attended a presentation on Stand For Hannah.
She had a great time and made so many new friendships.
Thank you to everyone who made this experience possible for all of the girls. Thank you to the Miss Teen Trinity Conception contestants for making all the girls feel so loved this past weekend you truly all are like sisters.
