How It Works

2023 Mr. & Ms. Military Pageant

You've Got This!

Contest Requirements are Listed Below
 

The Mr. & Ms. Military Pageant was created to showcase, celebrate and to appreciate the accomplishments of our military veterans. This year we will be partnering with local nonprofits to help bring exposure and donations that will help support their causes and programs. That is why right now we are looking for the Top Male and Top Female in the world of community service.

This page will be updated as more information becomes available.

We are looking for your coworkers, volunteers, family members or friends, who are military veterans that have gone above and beyond to help others in their community or have done something significant that you think is deserving of the title "Mr. or Ms. Military". Your choice can have a positive impact on someone's life for years to come. Keep in mind should they win, they don't have to quit their job but must be able and available on a part time basis to fulfill their duties as a title holder for one year. Thanks for helping us find the next Mr. & Ms. Military.

This year contestants will join with a non-profit organization that they have a strong connection to. The non-profit's mission and goals should be in line with what the contestant feels very passionately about.

The contestants may sponsor themselves or they may have a non-profit sponsor them.  During the preliminary round contestants will have at least two months to raise as much creative exposure and cash as they can for their non-profit. The final round will have contestants who have made the top ten cut for the males and top ten cut for the females. These finalists will be invited to the LIVE event in October where they will be judged in such categories as: Private Interview, Community Platform and Creativity, Military Fitness, Military Knowledge, Formalwear and An On-Stage Event. Afterwards winners will be announced and the reign begins.

We do listen and consider your ideas and because of that we may occasionally add some changes. Therefore, any updates will be announced first in our Pageant Weekly Newsletter to our Contestants and later on our Instagram page.

Split Up Into Payments

If $349. is too much to pay at one time, then no need to worry. Now you can make payments instead of paying the total all at once. Just click this link to use Square Afterpay on the check-out page click on Afterpay underneath the "Credit Card" box to break up the total into easy multiple interest-free installments. That's it.

We will add new Contestants to our Weekly Pageant Newsletter to keep everyone updated with the same information. Now you can start promoting and raising funds for your non-profit. Remember the Top 10 Males and Top 10 Females will be invited to the Finals in San Diego, CA on February 24, 2023. 

The Contest Requirements

There is no weight requirement. There is no swim suit competition. Nonprofits may have more than one contestant entered in the contest.

To be eligible for the Finals Contestants are Required to:

1. Have a minimum of 3 Social Media Posts promoting a nonprofit of choice before January 31, 2023. In their Posts, Contestants should let their followers know they are competing for the title of Mr. or Ms. Military and inform their followers what their nonprofit is doing for the community. Contestants must use: @MrMsMilitary and/or #MrMsMilitary. Extra points will be awarded by the Judges for Creativity. Any actors out there?

2. Raise a minimum of $100.00 for their nonprofit before January 31, 2023. This can be done by adding a Fundraiser to your Social Media posts on Facebook and Instagram. If your nonprofit is not listed you may choose one that is listed and partner with that organization.

3. Sell a minimum of 5 tickets to the event before January 31, 2023. We have In-person and Virtual tickets available for anyone to watch from anyplace. Email director@mmmilitary.com for a special Promo code to track sales.

During the contest you are encouraged to be creative as possible (without breaking any laws). We will not be held responsible for anyone's behavior. Find creative ways to showcase, celebrate and appreciate your non-profit organization on and off social media. Take plenty of videos, pictures and recordings. Whatever you and your non-profit agree on doing. You and your nonprofit should be working together as a team.

You are encouraged to use the hashtag #MMMilitary in your postings and you can tag us on Instagram @MrMsMilitary. Moreover, follow us right now (so you don't forget) on Instagram for contest updates and changes should any occur.

Nonprofits will no longer be required to track and report fundraising efforts to us. Contestants will be encouraged to add Fundraisers to their Social Media Posts by typing the name and selecting the nonprofit they would like to support in the Post. We feel this is a more fair way to track progress.
