hold up for you. State Forestry is exciting, you will
see everyone holding up signs and cheering for their
favorite contestants!! Don’t be left out, support your
girl, she’s worked hard to make it to this point! Your
contestant has worked hard to earn her way to the
State event, so please support her! She is getting to
participate in an event that only a few girls in
Georgia will get to participate in. Remember all
contestants are attending as winners and will leave as
winners. Local Queens will go home as a queen to
represent their county titles for the remainder of the
year. The Local Directors will have plenty of events
for the girls to participate in for the remainder of
their reign. We encourage cheering and supporting each
girl, although we will not allow any booing for or
against girls, also we expect all spectators to act in
an orderly way. Security will escort anyone who
disrespects others out of the Theatre. If you would

There will be approximately 50 girls in each division.
If you are planning on having someone do your hair and
makeup, we ask that you do this at the motel prior to
arriving at the pageant or at the hairdressers shop.
We just don’t have enough room backstage for everyone
to bring hairdressers, coaches, and so forth. We ask
that you take care of this prior to arriving at the
pageant. No pageant coach or hair dresser allowed in
the dressing room. Please take care of this at the
motel prior to arriving at the pageant. Please have
hair and makeup done prior to arriving and put your
gown on in the dressing room. Please make your hair
and makeup appointments where you will have plenty of
time to arrive on time at the pageant. We will not
wait on those who arrive late, we will be on a tight
schedule with 50 plus girls in each age group, so it
will be very important that we stay on tract with
time. After crowning all family members must wait
outside, they cannot come into the hallway to the
dressing room. We will be taking pictures in the
hallway after crowning and there is not enough room
for family members to enter, so please tell them, they
will have to wait outside until the contestant her mom
comes out and meets them. If you have not turned in a
birth certificate, I will need this before May 31st or
you will not be able to compete.

We have designed car signs to go on the back or side
of your your car. These can only be purchased through
the Georgia Forestry Pageant. You can purchase these
in magnetic. The signs will have the official Miss
Georgia Forestry crown, your name and your title. The
price is $20.00 for magnetic. We encourage the local
queens to purchase these to promote your title not
only at state forestry, but throughout the remainder
of the year. I ask that you get your orders to me as
soon as possible if you want these in time for State
Forestry. I will need the money plus $6.00 for
shipping and your name and title along with your
mailing address. We want all the signs to be alike so
when someone sees the sign, they will know you are a
forestry queen. Mail to Georgia Forestry Pageant 3005
Clover Circle Tifton, Georgia 31794.
