Contestant Workshops

 A minimum of two regional contestant workshops are held in different areas of the Nation each year.  These workshops are designed to provide qualified contestants with personal interview techniques and directions in proper evening gown modeling, as well as other pertinent information that can be used by the contestant during their preparations for Nationals. 

Mentors are former USofA National Titleholders.  Participation in these contestant workshops is limited only to contestants who are qualified to compete in the Miss Gay USofA Newcomer National  Pageant during the current season.  Although these workshops are provided free of charge as a perk to those who have chosen to compete in the Miss Gay USofA Newcomer System, contestants wishing to participate should RSVP.

Persons competing in other pageant systems will not be allowed to attend.  Eligibility of attendees will be verified prior to the start of the workshop.
