A beauty pageant or beauty contest is a competition that has traditionally focused on judging and ranking the physical attributes of the contestants, although some contests have evolved to also incorporate personality traits, intelligence, talent, and answers to judges’ questions as judged criteria.

Many contestants do not realize the weight of the Introduction in the competition. Again, this is a second look for judges to get to know you. The judges have already seen you in Interview and made a judgment about you.

Renowned and decorated voice coach and retired professor, Mr. Godwin brings us a bit of insight from a professional standpoint in the interviews he has conducted and meeting people in general. He says, “Those who win in the interview process appear with a twinkle in their eye which gives the interviewer the impression of their apparent eagerness to be there: great posture, breathing under control and a warm smile are mandatory and make the ‘twinkle in the eye’ easier to accomplish!” This can be applied to the Introduction portion as well.
