Evening Wear

Each contestant will be required to model evening wear of her choice.  Evening Wear is worth 15% of the total score for Miss and 25% of the total score for Teen.  Teen contestants will answer one on-stage question during evening wear as part of their evening wear score. 

 

On-Stage Question

Miss contestants will be asked one question onstage which will be drawn from a bowl.  The on-stage question is worth 20% of the total competition scoring.

 

Once the scores have been calculated, the winners will be announced.

Ties into or among the Top 5 of Miss Monticello will be broken as follows:  The contestant with the highest score in Talent will be given the higher placement, if both contestants are tied in talent then interview scores are used to break the tie, followed by on-stage question,  evening wear, and then swimsuit.  Unless a tie exists in all phases of competition judges do not reballot.  Should a tie exist in all five phases of competition each judge is to be given a listing of the contestants who are tied and each judge indicates individually who they feel should be awarded the higher position. In the Teen division ties into the Top 5 are broken by Talent first, then Interview, then Evening Wear/On-Stage Question and then Fitness.  If a tie exists in all phases of competition then the judges will re-ballot choosing the contestant that they feel should have the higher placement.
