Platforms used to only be necessary for adult pageant contestants, but with younger people getting involved in their communities we’re now seeing platforms even at the Princess level. Some pageant systems require contestants have a personal platform, others don’t. Even if a platform is not required by your system, we recommend you have one anyway.
Platforms can be a lifeline in the interview room. They, quite simply, give you something to talk about that is important to you personally. You may be able to share a personal experience or an experience of a loved one that inspired your platform work. You could have an opportunity to talk about a life lesson you’ve learned. Talking about your platform really gives you an opportunity to open up to the judges, allowing them to get to know you in a really meaningful way.
Once you win your title, having a platform will prove invaluable in booking appearances and making connections. If you don’t have a platform, you run the risk of being a titleholder with not much to do. Even in the current crisis, quarantined queens are staying engaged on social media because they already had platforms and something to talk about and share.
So now that you know you need one, we’re here to help you find the ONE in our online platform guide.
We know it's easy to feel hopeless during this time. Instead of giving in to the worry and fear, take some time each day to move one step closer to your goal. We'll help you by giving you simple tasks to get you closer to that crown. Today's challenge is:
Post about how people can get involved with your platform now

The U.S. coronavirus death toll has reached 3,000, approaching that of China. The rate of death appears to be slowing in China, where the pandemic broke out, with only one new reported case Monday. Chinese factories have reopened, allowing manufacturing to rebound.
The national average for a gallon of gas in the U.S. is now below $2, but most drivers won’t be able to take advantage of the price break as many Americans are under stay at home orders. AAA predicts the average will drop even lower to $1.75 in April. The same thing is causing the drop in gas prices and travel: coronavirus.
