COME BE DISCOVERED! We cannot guarantee that your participation will lead to a career, but we often
have talent / modeling scouts as judges or in the audience.  You can't be seen if you don't compete!

We promote our queens whenever possible.  Our queens have been in over 10 different magazines.  They have
appeared in newspapers, commercials, movies & have been on ABC news & both local and national television.  We
assisted several queens with landing extra roles in the movie “Carrie 2 - The Rage”. We helped a former National
Queen Scarlett Good obtain an audition for a commercial & she was also in "Carrie 2 -The Rage". We did this just after
she gave up her 1998 National American Royalty Title! Several of our queens were extras in Juwanna Man". National
Queen of Queens, Tara Nicole was chosen this year to appear as an extra in “A Tale About Bootlegging.”  Tara Nicole
has also received other auditions for film and was chosen to act on stage at a Disney World Christmas show.  Our
National Ambassador Tori Layton sang on the Jenny Jones Show and was also chosen to act on stage at a Disney
World Christmas Show & 2002 National queens Katie, Sydney & Angel filmed a commercial for J & W
Communications!!! Three of our queens can be seen on "Tiara Girls" (as visiting queens)This year, we have been to
Myrtle Beach, Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Epcot & MGM with our national queens.  Not to mention the parties!

We also stress service to others.
This year our queens raised over 3,000 food & toiletry items, over 3,000 books, over 100 Easter Baskets, 800
notebooks & over 2,000 boxes of crayons for charity.  They also participated in a Christmas stocking stuffer campaign
for at-risk children.  In the past 5 years we have donated more than 40,000 cans of food to the homeless.   American
Royalty is so much more than just a title!!

NATIONAL PAGEANT RULES:
 Registration is at 7:30 PM on Friday night for all those who are competing.   A more detailed schedule will be mailed to contestants.
 Make-up artists must have their own room at the hotel, as there will not be an area big enough for them to use downstairs. We are a
natural pageant & you really do not need a hairdresser unless you just really want one.

 DOOR OPTIONALS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT REGISTRATION CALL FOR MORE INFO.
 There will be no solicitation of other pageant material at or during the pageant.  We used to allow this, and we got complaints from
contestants who were bothered by other directors as they were preparing for competition...so, we encourage other pageants to purchase
a page of advertising in our program book FOR $100.00.  Or, you may send us your pwk & $50 & we will place your entry forms in the gift
bags.  This will ensure that you reach every contestant & will also ensure privacy for our contestants who do not wish to be bothered. We
are not responsible for the prizes which have been donated by sponsors. We have a 90 day grace period on age groups if you did not do
a qualifying event.  If you did a State or Preliminary event you may stay in the same age group you  were in at that event, at nationals also,
or you may move up.
 All checks must be made payable to:
 AMERICAN ROYALTY   and sent to:  2110 HEDGELAWN DRIVE, CHARLOTTE, NC 28262.
 All bounced checks will be charged a $35.00 fee & your child could be disqualified, so please be responsible. Any past due balance
over 30 days will result in forfeiture of title & bond.  Thank you.  No personal checks accepted past JULY 15th.  Cash only at the door. WE
DO ACCEPT MC & VISA THROUGH paypal online to acct: STARRCROWN@aol.com
 Photogenics, snapshots, comps, printmodel pics & portfolios & talent tapes / CD's & Costume music (if Any)  are to be turned in at
registration.
 Cover girl / Princess & program book photos must be mailed or e-mailed to our office, we must have these by JULY 18th.  If we do not
have them by then, they will not be judged.
 Good sportsmanship is required by everyone, not just contestants but their families, friends, hairdresser or anyone
else who accompanied you to the pageant.  Failure to abide by this  rule will lead to disqualification. This includes
participation in “internet chat rooms” or “bash boards”.  You agree not to talk about our pageant on-line, with the
exception of  congratulating people & congratulation banner - this includes your family, hairdresser etc. anyone who
came with you - so make sure they understand that their poor attitude will come back on your child. I have the ability to
trace ISP’s & will do so if I am informed of bashing on-line.  You will lose your title, awards, bonds, etc. & any legal fees
incurred by us due to your act of liable, will be paid by YOU.  Judges' decisions are final if you question the results you
will be disqualified right then & there.  We are a POSITIVE FAMILY SYSTEM & have no tollarance for nasty behavior.
By signing the entry form you agree to this.  We do not disclose who is entering ahead of time, do not ask..
 Modeling routines are limited to 90 seconds...you will be timed.  Points will be deducted for every 5 seconds over.
 All OPTIONAL events take place on Saturday, Beauty / Intro Crowning & farwells on Sunday.  Stage will be in a T formation with a runway.  
No cameras or video equipment in the ballroom, we have professionals on hand for your convenience.
 
Savings bonds are guaranteed.  Bonds are awarded when queen gives up her title the following year - unless otherwise advertised.  To
earn bond, queen must come back to Nationals for Saturday & Sunday & crown her successor, she must have made 6 appearances
during the year (anywhere) & must have a white appearance outfit (your choice) & a  red pageant tee-shirt.  You may compete in any
pageants you choose, we do not restrict our queens...HOWEVER...if you enter & win a pageant which prohibits you from wearing &
representing your American Royalty pageant, you agree that you will return to the pageant office all prizes / monies etc won in MINT
condition, or replace said items at your expense, within 4 weeks after the national office notifies you and your title will be awarded to your
first alt. If more than 6 months passes before you win a restricted title, you will give up your crown, etc. as stated above, but we will not
crown a replacement, as too much time has passed.  You also lose your bond.
You, the parent assume the responsibility for the
choices you make for your child.  It is not any fault of ours if you have made this choice & you should not expect that we would
welcome you promoting another title at our functions, nor should you expect us to pay you for doing so.
  It is my personal opinion that young children should be taught the importance of finishing their commitments & should not be forced to
choose between titles, which is why we don’t restrict our queens from other competitions (so long as you fulfill your commitment to us).  
Some pageants do not feel this way & unfortunately, if you are asked by another pageant not to represent any other title & you agree to do
so, you must relinquish your American Royalty title.  It simply is not fair to deny another child the honor of the title if you choose to only
represent only another organization.  By signing the consent form, you agree to this.  It is the responsibility of the winner to provide the
pageant with his / her ss # for the bond.  Winner is responsible for any & all taxes on prizes won.  
All ca$h prizes are awarded ON STAGE
the day of crowning.
Bonds are awarded the next year when you crown your successor. We do not pro-rate.
