ABOUT THE PAGEANT (back to top)
Join us on October 13-14, 2017 for the 2018 MISS TENNESSEE USA® & MISS TENNESSEE TEEN USA® Pageant live from Clarksville!
On the first day, the Teen and Miss Contestants check-in to spend the morning and afternoon in rehearsals with our choreographer at the Theater. The Mayor of Clarksville will host a "welcome dinner" for all of our contestants during which you will also have the opportunity to listen to a motivational speaker who will once again drive home the message of becoming your personal best.
The second day is full of rehearsals. Our production staff includes an incredible choreographer, set designer and numerous theatrical professionals who always make the Miss Tennessee USA and Teen USA Pageants one of the premiere pageant events in the country. The second day concludes with the Preliminary Competition in which each contestant will compete in Swimsuit and Evening Gown.
The third day begins with the personal interview competition. During the interviews, each contestant has the opportunity to meet individually with each judge for a two minute interview. Each contestant has the opportunity to convince the judges she is right for the job of Miss Tennessee USA or Miss Tennessee Teen USA. Following the interviews, the contestants return to the theater for final rehearsals. The Miss Tennessee Teen USA finals conclude that afternoon and the Miss Tennessee USA finals conclude that evening. By the end of the third day, we will have a new Miss Tennessee USA and Miss Tennessee Teen USA.
The winner of the Miss Tennessee USA will advance to the nationally televised MISS USA Pageant, and the winner of the Miss Tennessee Teen USA title will advance to the MISS TEEN USA Pageant. Should Miss Tennessee USA go on to become Miss USA, she would then advance to the ultimate contest ... the internationally televised MISS UNIVERSE Pageant.
