Abby, I think you left off one important grouping. I will not be competing in any pageant that does not offer all five places (winner & 1st-4th RU) because of the needed CMN fundraising. There are a few pageants that only have winner 1st & 2nd RU that I will not be competing in.
Thanks Amy, you raise a really good point... I had wondered why you didn't participate in North Coast. I'll add it to the polls. ~Abby
I will clarify that I am doing Clayland, which in the past has only given 1st & 2nd runner-up, but every contestant leaves with atleast $100 in scholarship, so I think it evens out.
