’til the National Pageant

Woman of Achievement

Welcomes You!

Due to the costs of production, there are no refunds of pageant fees once a title has been claimed; contestants who are late on oral or written payment arrangements will incur a 10% charge on remaining balance.

Pageant is responsible only for the cash and prizes it (Woman of Achievement) directly underwrites. We are not responsible for prizes promised by outside sponsors as we ultimately have no control over companies or persons to honor their commitments.
