Below you will learn more about this pageant system that is directly affiliated with the Miss Kentucky Scholarship Pageant.  Any additional questions should be directed to the state director, Virginia Murphy (contact info below).  If you would like to enter the pageant or for more information about the age divisions click on the Application Information link on the previous page.


This is a NATURAL PAGEANT and contestants should look their age.  A panel of judges will score each contestant during their individual competition with the title of Little Miss Kentucky going to the young lady that receives the highest combined total score in Dress, Casual Wear and On-Stage Question.  The title of Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky will be awarded to the young lady that receives the highest combined total score in Dress, Casual Wear, On-Stage Question, Talent and the Private Interview divisions combined.  All Pre-Teen contestants MUST compete in talent and private interview.


Several local pageants in the Miss Kentucky system hold Little Miss preliminaries with the winner(s) advancing to the Little Miss Kentucky / Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Pageant.  You can contact these local pageants by clicking on the Local Preliminaries link on the navigation bar to the left which will take you to a page containing their contact information.  Any contestant who wins a local preliminary Little Miss or Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Title is automatically allowed to advance to the state Little Miss or Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Pageant with their official local title.  Therefore, once a young lady wins a local preliminary pageants she is NO LONGER ELIGIBLE to compete in any other Little Miss or Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Local Preliminary Pageants for that pageant year.  At-large entries are also welcomed so you do not necessarily have to win a local pageant to participate in the state competition. 


The judges' panel will be instructed to look for the girl next door NOT a child that is 5 or 10 going on 25. This should also follow through in the photos submitted for the Photogenic competition and their performance in the Talent competition. Photogenic and Talent competitions are optional for the Little Miss Pageant and are not included in your entry fee.  Photogenic competition is optional for the Pre-Teen pageant and is not included in your entry fee (but talent is mandatory for pre-teens and included in the entry fee).   


Rehearsal will be Friday night, June 26, 2015.   The Pre-Teen contestants will each have a Private Interview with the judges prior to the on-stage competition on the morning of June 27, 2015.  The specific times for rehearsal, contestant order and the producer's informational packet will be sent by email to the contestants after the May 20, 2015 application deadline.  



The photographer's release MUST be signed by each photographer that has taken a photo that will be placed in the program book. If the photo is taken by a parent or other individual, the parent or individual should sign the release. Without the release, the photo WILL NOT be published.


The entry deadline is May 20, 2015. The entry application and other forms are due May 20th --NOT  POSTMARKED  MAY 20th!!



The Little Miss/Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky Pageant Committee will work hard to maintain the integrity of this competition. It is the committee's desire that every contestant walk away with a good feeling about themselves as well as the Little Miss/Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky program. Only two young ladies will become Little Miss Kentucky and Pre-Teen Miss Kentucky, but it is our hope that all the contestants will develop the desire to continue to participate in the Little Miss, Pre-Teen Miss, Miss Teen and Miss Kentucky programs.
