Local Outstanding Teen Pageants

MNCOTeen offers an At Large entry option. A contestant wanting to compete At Large will be required to pay a $1000.00 entry fee.  All At Large contestants will apply for the title she would like to represent. MNCOTeen will consider your First and Second choice titles and determine which title is best for you to represent. Outstanding Teens interested in participating as an At Large contestant must compete in at least one Local Pageant. All At Large contestants must attend our Work Weekend Events: March 31 thru April 2, 2017. Work weekend will be held in Greensboro at the Embassy Suites Greensboro Airport.

We will start accepting At Large entries January 2, 2017 thru March 11, 2017. To request your At Large Contestant Paperwork, email Vicki Young at during the time frame listed above.
