Miss VA U.S. International™
Delegate’s Handbook 2018 - 2019

Company Profile.
Worldly Krowns Productions is an event production company that has organized
beauty pageants since 2016 in NC and SC (under another pageant system) and recently
was awarded the Virginia State license for the USA franchise for Miss International
(www.miss-international.org).

Concept.
Miss International was established to promote “friendship and good relations with all
Nations”. The pageant was founded in 1960 in Long Beach, California where it
established the “Miss International Foundation” which donates money to
underprivileged children around the World through UNICEF and other charity
institutions. The donations go to hearing and sight impaired, severely mentally or
physically disabled, and severely sick children across the World along with donations
to “Feed the Children”. The organizers envisioned a regal International pageant
celebrating beauty, culture, and style, while promoting Peace, Goodwill, and
Empowering Young Women. Miss International is also a live TV telecast and are
members of the World Beauty Association (WBA). Harrison Productions, LLC has
been embarking on an aggressive business plan in the USA including trademark/image
development, and promotion. With an incredibly successful run for the past 58 years,
this is Miss International from Tokyo, Japan.

Mission.
Miss International’s Mission Statement: Through continuous philanthropic activities,
the Miss International Beauty Pageant is aiming at being more than a beauty contest;
it is an opportunity for the participants to improve their inner selves through
proactively contributing to the International community and International exchanges.
Emphasizing beauty, style, and cultural appreciation, the Miss U.S. International
Pageant is a personal development opportunity for young ladies of the United States
of America. The delegates who become part of the Miss U.S. International Pageant
gain confidence and poise in an increasingly competitive world. The pageant affords
each delegate the opportunity to grow and advance her personal goals while acting as
a role model in her community along with offering Miss International a $20,000 plus
cash prize and prize package exceeding $40,000. On a State level, we have a substantial
prize package that includes lodging at the National Miss U.S. International Pageant,
National Pageant Wardrobe, fitness and pageant preparation sponsors & gifts. For the
past 58 years, the Miss International pageant has been recognized as one of the three
major beauty pageants in the World. Under the directorship of Harrison Productions,
LLC, the USA franchise for Miss International is “One of The Top 3” Beauty Pageants
for women of the United States of America and is also a Grand Slam Pageant.

Areas of Competition.
Delegates at the state level will be competing in Evening Gown, Swimsuit and Personal
Interview. Evening Gown 35%; Swimsuit 35%; Personal Interview 30%.

Requirements.
All delegates who are interested in competing must provide proof of their age via birth
certificate, photo ID, school ID, or passport. If requested, Delegate can submit proof
of residency. All delegates certify they are between the ages of 18-28 and cannot turn
28 on or before November 15, 2019; delegates must be single and never married (never
divorced or had an annulment of marriage), delegate must never have given birth to a
