The variety of women the pageant attracts is hardly surprising. There are auto mechanics and airline pilots, doctors and dentists, aspiring models and actresses, wives and mothers, as well as traditional homemakers. The one thing they all have in common is that they are married and have an eagerness to compete.

Yes. We encourage our city and county titleholders to raise the entry fee in their communities. After all they have been exclusively selected to represent all of the married women in their areas. The entry fee covers the cost of doing business such as renting a theatrical facility, designing sets and music, as well as printing, advertising and phone expenses. Space is provided in the official program book to recognize your supporters.
No. Having children is not one of the basic requirements for entry. Several winners at the local and national levels haven't had children.
The judges are looking for a beautiful, well rounded, articulate woman. They are not asked to focus on age or length of marriage. In the 2010 Mrs. Colorado America Pageant the state finalists ranged in ages from 22 to 70.
No. We here at the Mrs. Colorado America pageant believe that being married is talent enough.
No. Realistically most married women are extremely busy with their careers and children. They are contributing to the community by virtue of serving their own families. While community service is stressed during the Mrs. Colorado America reign there is no emphasis on community service in the actual pageant competition.
Yes. Many women have won the title on their first try. Some have tried a second time while others have competed many times. It truly depends on the individual. Every one is given a fair opportunity to win.
No. The majority of the ladies that participate have never competed in a pageant previously. Several winners at the local and national levels have won without any pageant experience.
