This annual free event is sponsored by the Hampton Beach Chamber of Commerce and is held at the Hampton Beach Seashell.
If you have never been married and are a young woman between the ages of 16 and 24, you can enter the Miss Hampton Beach Pageant. In this competition, contestants are judged on personality, poise and appearance.
During the daylong event, the young women go through three types of evaluations, starting with individual interviews by the 10 judges. These interviews are followed by a swimsuit competition and an evening gown competition.
Cash awards include a $500 prize for being crowned Miss Hampton Beach. There are also cash prizes for first, second, third and fourth runners-up. Miss Congeniality, which is voted by the contestants, receives a trophy. There are also additional non-cash awards.
Miss Hampton Beach is seen as being an ambassador for the Seacoast and represents the region at various events, including Hampton Beach’s Children’s Festival, Seafood Festival, Christmas Parade and Fourth of July celebration. The winner of this event may also enter the Miss New Hampshire Pageant.
The Miss Hampton Beach Pageant, with its focus on building confidence in contestants and emphasis on collaborative interaction amongst the competitors, seeks to create a positive experience for all involved.
Interested Contestants should contact Stephanie Lussier at 603-512-5257 (cell phone).
