Teen pageant questions are similar to those asked to the Miss girls with one exception, they will not be asked political questions. Now, if you are competing in Miss America Outstanding Teen you may get asked some light political questions on the local level and a little more intense questions on the national level but you don’t have to worry so much about the hardliner topics of the day. You will be asked a lot about your paperwork so be aware of what you write. If you don’t want to talk about it then don’t write about it.

Here are a few sample teen pageant questions to cut your teeth on but my hope is that after your pageant you will come back to this forum thread to list more of the pageant questions that you were asked in interview. (Read: Most Popular Pageant Interview Questions and Answers)

Teen Pageant Interview Tips

I will leave you with this…as I judge I really could care less what you say in response to my questions. If you want to win me over do so by HOW you say it. Use charisma, flirt, be witty, and don’t take yourself too seriously. Being “professional” and serious is boring and will cause you to blend in with the sea of pretty faces.

      my ans. : Being beautiful itself is imbalance on the grounds that the real beauty lies beyond your core. Understanding that we are fairly created by God who is perfect, does mean that all of his creation are beautiful. We’re all done beautiful and whereas wit is the real battle of life and not beauty. thank you!

      1. That’s very deep. Be prepared that your judges are highly likely to ask you some follow up / clarifying questions. Your answer could also inspire religious questions, which isn’t a bad thing. It’s just something to be prepared for.

    2. Kindly help me to answer this.
      1. What would you say to people who do not believe that the pageants are a good influence on women ?

      1. “Life is all about perspective. And while everyone is entitled to their own from my perspective pageantry is a way that girls can earn scholarship money, work on their public speaking skills, gain experience interviewing for a position that they love and have the ability to network with influential people in the community. Additionally, I suggest reading, “How to Overcome Criticism from Friends and Family

        1. Answer please

  10. can you please help me answer this question? its about politics…

    1. Sure what is your political pageant question?

  11. Hi. . Can you help me answer this question “2. How could you convince the audience and the judges that you deserve the title?” thank you

    1. Hi Jeralyn,

      One of the best ways to convince the judges that you are the queen for the job is to be as prepared as possible. To do this we suggest Mock Interview practice, and feeding your mind with the belief that you can win. I know that it sounds weird but until you believe you deserve the crown you won’t win it. I recommend reading the book, The Game of Life and How to Play It. You can find it on Amazon for cheap and is written by Florence Shinn.

  12. Good Day, I am a fifteen year old female individual. I am also an introvert, very shy and sometimes quiet. I feel as if I have a gift, I can walk, I can diligently answer any question a judge can throw my way and I feel as if I have what it takes to possibly win this pageant. but my problem is.. I’m very nervous, and I’m afraid to present myself in front of a large crowd. What I’m asking for is a little advice or some kind of encouragement.

    1. Hi Troyeisha,

      Being nervous in front of a large crowd is TOTALLY normal! The best strategy to overcome this is to practice speaking in front of larger groups. I recommend speaking in front of your church, making announcements at school, volunteering for non profit events where you can emcee etc. Also, to help calm your nerves sign up for our free Pageant Prep Course. We will walk you through how to prepare for every phase of competition at zero cost.

  13. Can i have the answer of this question number 3
