Barstow Children's Pageant Philosophy

Competing in a pageant should be a fun and rewarding experience for both the child and parent.  It is an opportunity for the child to
meet other children with similar interests, gain confidence, self-esteem and a feeling of accomplishment.  A pageant should also
teach sportsmanship and self-improvement.  Although every child wins a sash & crown or tiara, our exclusive titles are earned by
the contestant, helping to instill in them at an early age, the importance of perseverance and humility.  It should be the child's desire
to compete, if they are of an age to choose for themselves.  For the parent, it's a chance to teach a healthy competitive attitude,
build character and share in the child's accomplishments and success, whether they win a title or just finish what they started.  It is
important that children look like children.  Any make-up for children should be extremely subtle.  We want our titleists to learn the
value of commitment and the importance of community service.

The Barstow Pageant is considered to be a “Natural” Pageant, minimal if any make-up and simple formal wear.  There is no benefit
to wearing glitz gowns.  Judges are instructed to not let ornate gowns influence their selections.  
* Professional Groomers are not allowed in the gym or dressing room.


We encourage that any Cash Awards be saved for the child's college education
