Contact the State Director. Local Pageants are approved by the State Director.
What is a Local Forestry Pageant?
Some counties hold Local Forestry Pageants. These Local Forestry Pageants are independantly
Directed with a Local Pageant Director and each Local Forestry Pageant is a seperate entity with each entity being run by
each Local Forestry Director. The Local Queens represent their local titles at the Miss Georgia Forestry State Pageant
in June each year.
The State Forestry Director is responsible for the State Queens and the State Pageant
and is not responsible for the Local Queens and the Local Pageants. Funds raised at the Local Forestry Pageants remains
with the Local Forestry Pageant. To contact a Local Director in your county and for your convenience we have listed
local applications and rules and regulations for local pageants on our website, each Local Forestry Pageant is
a seperate entity and is run seperately by each Local Director..
Where do I find rules, fees, and applications for Local Forestry Pageants?
Are all Local Forestry Pageants alike?
All Local Directors have to use the same rules and regulations as the State Forestry
Pageant so their queens will be eligible for the State Forestry Pageant. Other than the rules, it is up to the
Local Director on how they run their pageant, therefore all Local Pageants will not be alike. Questions about local
pageants shall be handled by the Local Pageant Directors. The State Director does not have the authority to handle
questions related to local pageants, each Local Forestry Pageant is a seperate entity to the State Forestry
Pageant. Since each Local Forestry Pageant is a seperate entity within itself, you will have to contact the Director
of each Local Forestry Pageant for information on each pageant because some pageants will be different.

your college is in. Local Pageants are open to all counties in the Tiny, Little, Junior, and Teen. Miss contestants
must work, reside, or attend school or college in the county they are competing in. If you do not have a Local Pageant
in your county, you can still represent your county at the Miss Georgia Forestry Pageant, you must be the first to enter
in your age group. We only accept one contestant per county and one contestant per college.
