COVID-19 and Pageantry

20, April 2020

These are certainly unprecedented times for the entire world. Many individuals have lost their jobs or become ill. Daily life has changed significantly as the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control has advised against large gatherings. It's natural to feel out of control and worried over what's happening.

Pageantry is one of the many industry being hit by COVID-19 as our industry centers greatly on live events. This means you as a contestant may not be able to compete because your director has had to postpone or cancel this year's pageant. Your competition may look totally different than you had imagined if your pageant is now virtual. We feel for you and want to provide as many resources as possible in this time of chaos. 

We started by producing a podcast that helps both contestants and directors cope with the effects of COVID-19. You can listen to that here:

Quarantine Prep Challenges

To help all of our contestants maintain a sense of structure and control over their time in quarantine, we've been posting daily quarantine prep challenges in our Pageant Daily newsletter. While this can be a stressful time, completing little tasks that get you one step closer to your goal will give you a sense of accomplishment in this time. We encourage you to join us by signing up for Pageant Daily now.
