I understand that the National Director and/or the Associate National Director/or the State Director reserves the right to refuse entry into the pageant for any reason as deemed necessary.

I understand that any funds submitted including but not limited to the entry fee are non- refundable and non-transferable to another pageant or contestant should the registered contestant be unable to attend for any reason or is released from the system due to poor sportsmanship.
In case of acts of, God eg, snowstorms, hurricanes, floods, etc funds are not refundable. However, they may be transferable to another title or pageant at the director's discretion, or we may choose to advance you to nationals with a credit. This includes online photogenic or online live pageants.
I agree to abide by all rules and guidelines and show respect to fellow contestants and staff. I understand that as part of my prize package I will advance to Miss Celebrations USA National Pageant (pending my required ad fee and official state tee shirt purchase unless otherwise noted).
I further understand that I may be subject to a Code of Ethics and representation clause to be signed immediately upon receiving my sash and crown. All Scholarship money is to be paid out after one year of reigning as a queen and fulfilling her duties. Scholarship money will not be paid if the queen does not complete her duties as set forward in her contract. Contestants have to be present at the National Pageant to receive your scholarship money. If they are not present they forfeit their money.
I also understand that if attendance is found to be too low to provide you and your family with the type of pageant experience that Miss Celebrations USA can be proud of, or if unforeseen circumstance or disaster occurs; State Level titles will be issued without competition (allowing the Queen to advance to Nationals with their Basic Entry Fee Paid) or pageant will be rescheduled.
I certify that the above-stated information is correct and true to the best of my knowledge.
