About the Pageant

The St. Bernard Redfish Festival Pageant is the official pageant of the newly created St. Bernard Parish Redfish Festival & World Series. The Festival & Pageant are being sponsored by the St. Bernard Parish Tourism Commission and the St. Bernard Parish Government. The Teen & Miss winners of the pageant will be official ambassadors for the festival, parish, and Redfish World Series throughout the year of their reign, and will travel the state representing our events all year.

The St. Bernard Redfish Festival & World Series celebrates the importance of the Louisiana Redfish to our local economy and community, as well as the impact the sport of catching these fish has to our state as a commodity. Our parish is truly the Redfish Capital of the World, and anglers from across the world visit our waters every year to catch this amazing fish.

Areas of Competition for the 2019 Pageant

Interview

Each contestant will meet with a panel of judges for a 3-5 minute interview where she will be asked questions about herself, her goals & accomplishments, and general questions about our festival. Each contestant will be given information about Louisiana Redfish, St. Bernard Parish, and the festival in advance to prepare.

On-Stage Introduction

Each contestant will give an on-stage introduction & recite an original jingle she creates about the festival and pageant as a creative commercial to ask people to come to our events. Jingles can be as short as 30 seconds or as long as 1 minute.

Evening Gown

Each contestant will showcase her poise and grace while walking in a floor length evening gown. Gowns must touch the floor and should be age appropriate. High slits past the top of the knee and deep cleavage are prohibited. A short bio from each contestant’s paperwork will be read aloud as she models on stage.

On-Stage Question

Each contestant will be asked a question on-stage by the emcee. Contestants will be given 30 seconds to answer the question on the spot in front of the audience and judges. The question will not be political.

Requirements

The St. Bernard Parish Redfish Pageant is open to residents of Louisiana. Contestants must currently live in Louisiana.

Teen and Miss contestants must never have been married or pregnant.

Teen contestants must be ages 14-16 as of September 14, 2019 (the day of competition).

Contestants may not hold a binding title at the time of the competition. If the contestant holds any non-festival title, she agrees that her first obligation is to the St. Bernard Parish Redfish Festival for appearances. If it is discovered that a contestant holds another binding title or festival title, she will forfeit her eligibility to compete unless the contestant can provide a waiver from her current director or pageant board allowing her to compete in anticipation of passing on her current title.

If a contestant has previously held a binding or festival title, she must be in good standing with her past organization(s). Failure to disclose previous titles may result in disqualification from the competition.

Parents and/or Legal Guardians of minor aged contestants will be required to sign a code of conduct along with their daughters. Any behavior found to be unbecoming of a parent or legal guardian before, during, or after the pageant (or during the year of the reign in the case of the winners) may result in disqualification or stripping of all awards and titles for the contestant/titleholder. Disrespect, bullying, threats, or unsportsmanlike conduct – whether verbal or in writing – are examples of behavior that will not be tolerated by contestants, parents, guardians, or our titleholders. Parents and contestants understand that in participating in the St. Bernard Parish Redfish Pageant, they are representatives of our pageant, festival, parish, and sponsors.

Both the Teen and Miss winner will be required to sign an official queen’s contract after winning the pageant.
