Q. As a contestant, do I need to find a sponsor?
To keep the pageant running at the same time provide contestants with incredible opportunities and prize package, we rely on the generosity of sponsors. To participate in this contest, we ask for a small sponsorship fee to cover production cost. Most times the fee can be recovered with the help of friends and family while other contestants source for sponsorship from local businesses. If you explain to potential sponsors your desire to improve yourself through the Miss Amity USA pageant, your goal, the charity you are passionate about, and the opportunity to win thousands of dollars in scholarship that will help you advance in your career, you are most likely to get their support. To show appreciation, inform the sponsors we will feature them in our souvenir program.

Q. How will the preliminary and finale event work?
A. Before the finale event, contestants will be given a date for the preliminary. The preliminary will allow the judges to know the girls better. Every contestant will be interviewed individually followed by a photo shoot. The prejudging is crucial because even though the top 15 contestants are not announced until the finale event, they are determined by the preliminary results. Therefore, it is important for contestants to come at their best. On the day of the finale, all contestants will participate in the opening number to introduce themselves. At this point, we will announce the top 15 contestants who will further compete in swimsuit/activewear and evening wear! The contestant with the most likes on social media automatically enters the top 15! Live voting will begin at this point. All the contestants will return on stage in their evening wear for the announcement of the runners-up and the crowning of our new Miss Amity USA.
