Contestant deadline February 4 for upcoming competition

Pageantry at IU student organization is currently accepting paperwork for the 2024 Miss IU competition, which will take place Sunday, Feb. 18 at Willkie Auditorium. Doors will open at 5:30, and the show will start at 6 p.m.

Full-time IU-Bloomington students will compete for a share of almost $4,000 in scholarships. Always entertaining and spirited, the show is open to the public and free of charge.

As an official preliminary to Miss Indiana and Miss America, the on-stage phases of competition include talent, on-stage interview, fitness, and evening wear. Off stage, candidates will have a 10-minute private interview with the judging panel the morning of the competition. Detailed explanations of the competition and its requirements are on the contestant guideline page.

Prospective candidates are invited to attend free, preparatory workshops, also hosted by Pageantry at IU. The first workshop will be Sunday, Jan. 21 with the second workshop being Sunday, Feb. 4. Both will take place at Fine Arts 015 from 2-5 p.m. Workshop participants will have opportunities to ask questions; get help with their resumés and community service initiative statements; practice on-stage walking patterns; participate in mock interviews and on-stage questions; and receive general advice regarding wardrobe and talent preparation.

The deadline for submitting required paperwork is Sunday, Feb. 4, 2024. Shortly after, Pageantry at IU will post a list of this year’s candidates on social media. Friends, family and the public are invited to vote for their favorite candidate in our People’s Choice competition. Watch for updates and access to voting prior to Feb. 18.

Pageantry at IU is proud to be the only Miss Indiana local competition produced by a student organization. However, this annual event would not be possible without generous support from the IU Foundation, IU Funding Board, the Kiwanis Club of Bloomington, plus several local businesses.
