The new 2023 MRI court.The Miss/Ms./Mrs. Royalty International pageant has divisions for ages 13 and up. Our contestants compete by age and not marital status, although we do have a Mrs. Royalty International title for those that choose to enter. We welcome teens and we welcome women with all backgrounds and stories: married, widowed, separated, divorced, single, with children, or no children. MRI is about celebrating women of all shapes and sizes while they champion causes that are close to their heart. The personal mission of the MRI pageant is the #ModelCitizen Campaign. One thing that separates the MRI pageant from other pageant systems is that you are not alone in your journey with us. Not only do we provide a 3 hour zoom informational session for each new contestant, we also pair each contestant with their very own Contestant Coordinator. The Coordinator is here to guide our contestants with any and all questions. Should additional help be required such as extensive training, our coordinators are readily available to be hired as coaches. We also offer a transformative 3 week Model Citizen Academy for those wanting to get into the news media or needing help developing their platforms and plan of action. We've got you covered at MRI.

Do you fear the interview phase of competition? Do you get stuck on what to say? Are you nervous when you think about facing the judges? Maybe you have competed a while and are unsure why you are not winning. Our Mock Interview training is next level. Our Director Sherrie Gearheart spearheads this training by utilizing the skills developed by top Miss America coaches, fortune 500 business coaches, and top communication experts to help our delegates effectively communicate their outreach plans & goals and what makes them right for the job. We go beyond the basic tips of eye contact and smiling and dive deep into what makes each delegate unique, finding her true passions that will help her stand out from amongst the crowd. This is not cookie cutter training. We utilize a trained panel of judges that each give real life feed back to the delegate. We hold back to back interviews within a 30 minute time frame. Delegates can pay to sign up for these sessions once per month giving them ample time to perfect their pitch and paperwork while returning back to us to practice in a safe space. All mocks are virtual unless we hold a special in person mock day which is advertised separately. This training is open to all systems and all delegates ages 4 and up. This training is specifically catered to helping our MRI delegates grow and is custom tailored to other systems. Sign up today. Text (815) 914-8602.
