Miss La Vergne Pageants
The 2019 Miss La Vergne Beauty Pageant will be held on Saturday, September 7th at La Vergne Middle School; the 2019 Miss La Vergne Baby Pageant will be held on Sunday, September 8th at La Vergne Middle School.
This year participants will be judged in three categories: talent, formal wear, and interview response.
Starting with the Little Miss contestants and ending with the Miss La Vergne contestants. Each pageant category's winner and two runner-ups will be crowned at the conclusion of the pageant so group photos can be taken at that time.
Understand first and foremost that the goal of the pageants is for children and parents to have fun. When preparing and while participating, enjoy the time you spend with your children.
The cost is $25 per child to enter if you register by Thursday, October 18th, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. We will be taking late applications until Thursday, October 25th, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. The fee will be $35 for any applications received after October 18th. Participants must check-in onsite between 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m on the day of the event. Each contestant will receive a t-shirt that can be worn to several future City events. There will also be a small dinner for all participants after rehearsal on Friday, November 2nd.
The annual “People's Choice Award” will be back again this year. The girl that collects the most money in her individual pageant category vote will be crowned “People's Choice Winner” and take home the 50/50 prize - or half the money donated in voting. Girls are responsible for bringing their own personally decorated voting box with their photo. The box can be no larger than a shoe box (7 inches by 4.5 inches by 12 inches).

Talent Competition (New for 2019)
New to the 2019 Miss La Vergne Beauty Pageant is a talent portion. Only participants in the “Miss,” “Junior Miss,” and “Young Miss” categories will participate in a talent portion. All talents must be performable on the stage provided. No talent may include weapons of any kind or fire. Each talent must be approved by the Pageant Director or Assistant Pageant Director before being accepted.
Contestants will be given a two-minute time limit to perform their talent. They do not have to fill the full two minutes, but judges will be instructed to dock points if the contestant goes longer than the allotted time. Any music or materials for a talent must be provided by the contestant.
After the Pageant
Winners will be responsible for securing their own convertible for the Old Timers Festival parade in 2019. The city will loan magnets with the titles of the winners for the cars. Runner-ups who wish to participate in the parade may team up together to design a float for the parade. The city will loan a banner with the pageant name for the float. Be prepared to choose up to 3 “queen mothers” during the rehearsal to coordinate the activity.
This pageant is NOT an open pageant. Applicants must live in or attend school in La Vergne. If a school is physically located in Smyrna or Nashville but serves La Vergne students, all students from that school will be eligible. Children who have immediate family (parent or grandparent) who work for the City of La Vergne or work or own a business in the city limits are also eligible to participate. If someone who does not meet these requirements but does have a vested interest in the city would like to participate they must get permission from the Pageant Director.
