About the American Coronet Pageant

The American Coronet pageant was founded in 2002 as an alternative to the pricey pageants full of hidden expenses that focused on outer beauty.  American Coronet values community service and achievement aspects of pageantry over the hotel ballrooms and hairspray.

American Coronet delegates compete in areas of competition demonstrating character and community involvement.  The pageant is held 100% online through electronic submissions with no travel, wardrobe, admissions, or other expenses.

How it Works

After entering, each national contestant will receive an appointed title (first-come, first-serve so enter early to get your state!) along with an embroidered sash and rhinestone crown.  She is encouraged to make appearances and use her title to promote her platform in her community.

Delegates compete online and are scored on Resume, Photogenic, Community Involvement, Leadership, and with 3 essays.  Our competition is via an online portfolio system where delegates submit their materials in proprietary form which accepts rich text copy/pasted in or typed directly, photo uploads, document uploads, and video links.  The delegates may edit their portfolios up to the entry deadline (April 30th), at which portfolios are sent to judges for scoring.

National results are announced online on May 15th and prizes are shipped to national queens.

Our program is often imitated, but never duplicated.  That is why or delegates return year after year to be a part of the American Coronet program.

The national pageant is held online.  Each contestant will complete an online portfolio which includes a resume, photogenic photo, essays, and details about her community involvement and leadership.  Judges from around the country will score each section and the contestant in each age division with the highest overall score will win the national queen’s title.
