The focus of Vanbros from the beginning, is for this program to provide a fair environment in which young women have the opportunity to better themselves. We hope the pageant encourages the contestants to gain self-awareness, self-confidence, individual pride and greater social awareness. We hope each contestant improves her ability to communicate effectively, speak in front of people, and stand up for her beliefs. We encourage our contestants to find issues she feel's strongly about, and to become involved in organizations and causes that speak to her heart. Each young lady who enters this program has different goals, and we strive hard to assist each young woman in her own personal quest.
Regardless of what your future career plans are, this is an environment that can open many exciting doors. Each year, career connections are made by contestants during their pageant experience! Or, maybe you have not decided yet on a future career path. That’s okay too because maybe this experience will help you find something you want to do with your life. This could even be your chance to get "discovered!" It’s happened to many young women before!
We're especially proud of the fact that many contestants each year have never been in a pageant and they find it to be a rewarding and worthwhile experience. Many have won on their first attempt, and many others return because it was a positive experience. We like to believe that each young woman who participates in our pageant leaves a little more prepared to deal with the world around them, and more importantly, the world ahead of them! Basically, our philosophy for the MISS KANSAS USA & MISS KANSAS TEEN USA Pageant is not about encouraging young women to ‘win’ a pageant, but to encourage excellence in young women, and to help them develop life skills that will ultimately help them win in life by being the best they can be in everything they do.
The winners of our State Pageant will each embark on an exciting journey, and receive a prize package including cash, wardrobe, and travel.
While our program places an emphasis on excellence, achievement, and personal growth, we also strive to make the pageant experience FUN! The pageant is a two day event.
On the first day, it's fun, fun, fun! The contestants enjoy getting to know the pageant staff and other contestants. The day is full of rehearsals. We bring in a choreographer and a producer, who will put together a great show. The day concludes with the Presentation Show. During the Presentation Show, each contestant is presented to the judges in the preliminary active wear/swimwear and evening gown competitions.
The second day begins with the personal interview competition. During the interviews, each contestant has the opportunity to meet individually with each judge for a four minute interview. Each contestant has the opportunity to convince the judges she is right for the job of MISS KANSAS USA or MISS KANSAS TEEN USA. Following the interviews, the contestants return to the theater for more rehearsals. The second day ends with the Coronation Show. At the end of the final show, we will have a new MISS KANSAS USA & MISS KANSAS TEEN USA.
The winner of MISS KANSAS USA will advance to the nationally televised MISS USA Pageant, and the winner of the MISS KANSAS TEEN USA title will advance to the MISS TEEN USA Pageant. Should MISS KANSAS USA go on to win MISS USA, she would then advance to the ultimate contest... the internationally televised MISS UNIVERSE Pageant.
