Showcase Your Past Participants

Family, friends and attendees will use the programs to learn more about the pageant and contestants. An introduction, printed schedule, message from the director, and judges biography are important. The reigning queen, past royalty and appearances of the previous winner should also be included.

Gwen Nanna used the left page to showcase the winners from the previous year and give a short biography about them. This helps generate excitement for the contestants that are participating in this year’s competition. She also used the same magenta color throughout the program to give everything a unified look.
