Registration is open for any girls wanting to join the pageant. You can contact us for registration forms and we must receive your registration before you get a spot on your community.

The following Princess Package comes with the $500 Entry Fee. 1 Night Accommodation - Thursday Aug 22 (roomed with another princess) 1 Free Hair Appointment for either Thursday or Friday • Nails and make up will be available but not covered 1 Free NSMSG T-Shirt The Winners will receive: Queen • Crown & Sash • 2020 Qualifier for Miss/Ms Maritime International • $2,500 • Bouquet of flowers • Miscellaneous gifts from sponsors 1st runner up will receive: • $1,500 • Bouquet of flowers • Miscellaneous gifts from sponsors 2nd runner up will receive: • $1,000 • Bouquet of flowers • Miscellaneous gifts from sponsors There will be other awards that could be won (Miss Friendship, Best Talent, Miss Aboriginal Awareness, etc).

Thank you everyone for the feedback and concerns. Before all the questions are answered, we'd like the public to know the fee is not due until July 31st. A princess can enter her name by filling out the registration forms and have the fee paid on the due date. Princesses would have the time to approach local businesses and their bands. If needed, we will also provide a letter from the Host Committee stating that you are one of the princesses seeking sponsorship.

I believe the judges should be well educated in Mi'kmaw culture and language. Would be great if they have judges that are not from around here. . They do not know these girls so it would be fair. Just my little input. And I also agree with Lana, the Marks should be reconsidered.

Pretty sure Eskasoni will sponsor our princesses.

How do I get my daughter registered? I send an email, but it came back..the email provided didn't work

I think it would be the carnival queen and her first runner up that should represent our community. Sorry gang that’s how it normally works around here.

A better depiction of our heritage could have been used instead of what looks like a picture of Pocahontas!

Kaylee Denny are u goin on this parent this year? I’m sure eskie would pay for ur fee ur the queen up there. Just sayin pas

New ideas guys! There was never a cost for the pageant but there was also no prize money for the queen! Let’s support We’koqma’qs decision! It’s still 3 months away, there’s still time to find sponsorship, and if there’s low income families, come forward, fundraiser, ask for help because we definitely will help any girl who wants their chance to become queen!

Will the girls have to have their own Lnu regalia’s or is it needed for to the summer games pageant?

The entry fees likely would go towards the cash prize for queen, 1st & 2nd runner up

Wow! That's a steep price. Didn't know it cost to go on this?! Hope girls that come from low income families get a chance. And didn't know that grades mattered at all

Its a new way of doing things. There is plenty of time for any participants to obtain a sponsor or sponsors. Two per community would keep it fair, there are times when a community hasn’t had representation. It would bring out the seriousness of the pageant, the competition aspect. Before I get jumped on about competition, the games are based on competition. It’s up to an individual if they would like to join, it’s not up to us as spectators to tell them the negative aspects of this. If the negative is the entrance fee. Well like I said, sponsorship and fundraising would be a start. Right now would be a great time for young ladies to start fundraising or obtaining sponsorship. The prize money would have been great when I was in it as well 🙂 Early congrats to the winners!

$500 seemed a bit steep, besides the prizes what else does it cover for them to enter....I'm wondering because I pay around the same sometimes a bit more on bigger pageants...but theres alot of lessons and extras involved that include but are not limited to hotel coverage for the days, group dancing lessons, meals, group fashion practice and small gifts and a few other perks hair makeup,... it's a good idea but for a first time making an entry fee personally it should be half that... but then again dont know what it offers the girls except for the prize money good idea tho a title and money is better than a medal.. best of luck to all the girls who enter!

Wow that's awesome!!! I'm pretty sure people will come with the registration.. especially when its 2 members representing their rez !!

Matilda A Copage Mackenzie Lynn Marie Copage

I really can't see the wait list being very long! There are very few in our communities that can find and hold onto $500.00 just in case someone drops out. Plus, like mentioned above, the costs leading up to the big day are not going to be attainable by all. Our many beautiful potential ladies are going to be discouraged by this entry fee! Even with the great prizes offered...

Could you please provide the list of sponsors? If oil and/or gas industry is sponsoring, my family and I will not be participating in this years summer games once again.

Hey look tu's you should enter this upcoming princess pageant only 2 entry's per community too! Go give it a shot gurl!! : ) Mickey Peck

Lol I would pay a registration fee for that prize money, where was this the year I joined?! lol

What will the princess be responsible to do? Will they have to do a speech? A talent? A dance together?

Whaaat?? There was never a cost for pageant

Cash prizes beats getting a medal, im sure, they are sponsors out there to cover the entry fee.
