The Miss Global Pageant is an international pageant system that focuses on empowering women, embracing cultures and embodying the inner beauty of each contestant. Miss Global is a powerful system who’s mission and goals are certainly unique from other international pageants. It comes as no surprise that the system strives to attract well-rounded and passionate contestants.
Focus of the System
Miss Global prides itself on being a system that puts a strong emphasis on both embracing culture and embodying inner beauty! Strong contenders in Miss Global should be open to learning about other cultures in addition to being proud of their own heritage and background. A strong Miss Global competitor is a woman who embraces her inner strengths and qualities and has no qualms about expressing who she truly is.
Does the System Have a National Platform?
Miss Global places a strong emphasis on community service involvement. The winner of the pageant will work heavily with various affiliate charities of the system during her reign. In addition, Miss Global will bring awareness to her personal platform/charity during her year of service.
In the past, Miss Global has worked to support charities such as Global Angels (provides clean water to third world countries), Heart Beat Vietnam (child heart transplants), and the Senhoa Foundation (combats poverty and human trafficking by providing at risk women and children with free education and small business loans to support their own families).
How the Competition is Scored
All contestants compete in the categories of National Outfit, Swimwear, Evening Gown and Onstage Question during the preliminary competition. The top 20 contestants move onto the final round of the competition.
Contestants are given the opportunity to model a fashion forward outfit that showcases the country they are representing.
This category gives contestants an opportunity to showcase their accomplishments, mission, professionalism and goals.
Delegates are required to wear a solid two piece swimsuit with a white sarong. Judges take physical fitness, effort, healthy appearance and ultimately, personality into consideration when scoring this portion of the competition.
Contestants will model an evening gown of their choosing. Contestants who succeed usually have dresses that stand out while exuding elegance on stage.
The top 5 contestants are asked an onstage question focusing on ones accomplishments or goals in life. Judges score the contestants based on articulation, confidence and poise. Special consideration is made to avoid political or controversial questions.
This category is an honestly unique attribute of the Miss Global Organization. Contestants are judged on their personality, participation and inner beauty starting at pageant orientation. A panel of secret judges, along with the pageant staff, work together to choose the overall winner of this category.
What Makes the Pageant Unique
– The Miss Global Pageant is held in a different location each and every year. This makes the experience unique for each class of contestants.
– Talent is an optional event in Miss Global, which has no bearing on the overall score of contestants.

Currently, a majority of the delegates are not required to win a preliminary competition at the local, state or national level.
Also, delegates may even represent a country outside of the one they reside in. For example, a Korean-American may choose to represent Korea, even if she has never lived in or visited the country. However, the delegate must have a tie to the country by either nationality or heritage. This gives women the unique opportunity to represent not only the country of their birth, but also for the country/culture that their family identifies with.
