Application Forms and How to Apply
The basic application forms are a resume and platform statement to be submitted to the local program. A contract is also required -- see below.
Each local contestant is also required to set up a fundraising page at missamericaforkids.org before they compete in their first local event, and they must register for the local program(s) at the missamericforkids.org site. See "CMNH Official Charity" at right for details.
The application instructions for competing in a Local Program are available for download in PDF format. Note that there may be additional eligibility requirements for some local programs. Please contact the local director of the program you wish to enter for the due date of your application and additional information about their specific local program (see the Local Program page for Local Program director contact information).
