Community Platform Assessment

We will work with each contestant to draft a customized Community Platform Project Plan rooted in their interests, skill-sets, and any prior experience. Contestants sign a contract confirming that should they become the Queen, First Princess, or Second Princess titleholder, they will execute this plan during the year of their reign. Contestants present this plan to an internal Chicago Asian Women Empowerment team 1 week prior to the pageant and the resulting score will count toward the overall score. It is NOT scored on a curve - ALL contestants are able to receive 100% and they can submit drafts for review leading up to the deadline.

The talent segment is optional. The talent score only counts toward the Miss Talent title. Contestants who are interested in participating in this segment must audition for it during one of the rehearsals.

Q&A

Through our training program workshops, contestants will learn about Feminism, Current Events, and AAPI History. These will be the topics for the questions. They will each pick a question on the spot and answer it on the spot on stage. No time limits apply, but keeping it succinct is encouraged! The Q&A score counts toward the overall score.

Confidence Runway

bikini

This segment component involves wearing a two-piece bikini on stage. We've been asked why we have this component and why we have contestants wear a bikini. We believe that women should be able to confidently show their bodies no matter their shape, size or milestone in their health and fitness journey. Those who objectify us just because we're wearing something with less fabric are in the wrong - we are not in the wrong for wearing it. Contestants are judged on their confidence and personality in this segment, not on their physique. The score counts toward the overall score.

Community Platform Pitch

This 90 second speech is given on stage and should be a pitch for the Community Platform Project Plan. While the Community Platform Project Plan Assessment is meant to assess the project plan itself, this pitch is meant to assess how well the contestant can convince others to be on-board with her platform. This pitch counts toward the overall score.
