There is a $150 entry fee required to compete for the title of Miss Bucks County, Miss Montgomery County, Miss Liberty Bell Outstanding Teen. Teen contestants are also required to register on the www.MissAmerica4Kids.org website. Although the suggested goal is $150 you are not required to make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network, the national platform for the Miss America Organization. You are welcome, however, to raise as much as you want to support MAO and CMN.
Donations, in excess of the minimum amount required for each pageant, collected by a contestant, may be rolled-over for use in multiple Local Pageants, State and National pageants within a pageant cycle. A pageant cycle starts with the Local pageant that leads to State, which leads to the National pageant for a title leading to Miss America within the pageant cycle. When a contestant starts a new pageant cycle at the Local level (which could involve several Local pageants for that cycle), no funds are rolled over from the prior pageant cycle (Miss America) and everyone is at the same starting place for fundraising.
Local Level: All contestants must register at MissAmerica4kids.org. Dual local pageants only require each contestant to have a minimum expected goal of $150 (not $200). Any donations collected in excess of the $100 for Pageant 1, will automatically roll-over into the contestant's excess account and will be used toward their fundraising goal for Pageant 2. Any excess funds from Pageant 2 will automatically roll-over and will be used toward their fundraising goal for Pageant 3, etc. The maximum donation required to enter all local pageants for the current year is $400. If a contestant does not go on to compete in the State level, any excess funds over the $100 per pageant entered will be equally distributed among all the local pageants the contestant competed in.
State Level: Should the contestant win a local pageant, any excess donations will automatically roll-over and be applied to the $250 minimum required for the State pageant. Should the contestant collect donations during her state competition, then the "borrowed" excess funds from the local level will be returned to the local level for allocation under the local accounts.
National Level: Should the contestant win the State pageant, any excess donations will automatically roll-over and be applied to the $500 minimum required goal for the National pageant.
Please note that the exact procedures shown are subject to change. Should there be a change, please follow the directions on the Miss America 4 Kids website.
