I have not been in Pageants; do I have a chance of becoming Miss Nepal US?
You have in you what it takes to be a winner. In fact, through our past experience we can attest that most of the winners in the pageant are all new-comers.
If I am selected from audition, do I have to pay any further fee to attend the training & final event?
After the audition, the shortlisted 20 contestants are responsible for finding their personal sponsors to cover the sponsorship fee. It will amount to $1000. This amount will cover all your expenses: training sessions, travel cost to and from the final event, room and board, all the pageant-related group excursion and cultural events.
How does “Personal Sponsorship” work?
Collecting sponsorship is very important. It takes time and commitment on your part. You start with a list of potential sponsors such as friends and family members and their employers. Plan your approach and make it a point to explain your goals and aspiration behind attending the Miss Nepal US event, the charities you believe in and the opportunities for winning. Let them know what your experience will entail. Highlight the fact that you will announce your sponsor’s name during the introductory round in the final event. This might be of special interest to companies. Consider this as a part of the process in improving your communication skill. It is an essential characteristic to have if you’re going to be the next Miss Nepal US.
Our target is for every contestant to collect the full sponsorship fee. If you work hard at it, it is possible that you will not incur any expenses out of your pocket. Besides, there is an army of organizing committee to assist you in this process.
What if I raise more sponsorship money than the required sponsorship fee?
You may collect more than the required sponsorship fee. If you do collect over the required amount of the sponsorship fee, please send in the full amount to the organizer secretarial, and we will reimburse you the difference on the first day of checking-in during the training. You may then use the additional money for any personal expenses you may have during the course of your preparation and competition in the pageant.
What should I do if a personal sponsor gives me cash for my sponsorship fee?
If you receive cash contributions for your sponsorship fee, you may prefer a money order or send us a personal check. Please DO NOT send cash through mail at any time. If the cash you collected exceeds the sponsorship fee for the pageant, then you’re not required to send in the additional amount.
What will happen if I can’t find the personal sponsor to cover sponsorship fee?
If you can’t find any personal sponsors, you are responsible for the all the charges involved with the training as well as the travel expenses to and from pageant training and final event location. We urge you to work closely with the organizing committee throughout the process that such situation does not arise.
I live very close to the venue for the final training. Can I rather stay home and commute to training every day?
No, all final contestants are required to stay at the sponsored hotel and follow the program schedule of the workshop. We have designed the workshop in a residential format in order to foster a close-knit relationship between the contestants. We believe such bonds will enhance the learning process and make it more fun all the way. There will be free times during the training sessions when you can explore the city or visit your close by family.
Is it possible to have one of my parents stay with me during training period?
We’d rather not. We want the contestants to immerse themselves in a new-found community of fellow contestants and challenge themselves for nurturing an independent spirit. In any case, your parents are responsible for their own expenses.
How do my family and friends get tickets to attend the pageant?
Ticket information will be listed on the website once they have been set.
What should my family and friends wear to the pageant?
Not particular but we recommend anything from business casual to formal wear for the pageant finals.
