Nonprofit Sign Up

We want to Advertise your nonprofit organization

Nonprofit 501c3 organizations are allowed to spend money on advertising their business. What better way is there to promote your nonprofit business than this? Our pageant for nonprofits features military active duty service members and veterans exclusively, from all over the nation. If you have a nonprofit that has services and or products for military veterans then you are in the right place and should be signing up today. Why? By participating you will gain more exposure than you currently have right now and because veterans can't enter without you (a nonprofit). Veterans must have a nonprofit partner. The best part is: you get to pick ANY military veteran you want to represent your nonprofit. Your nonprofit does not have to be in San Diego or California in order to participate. However, the nonprofit and their military veteran representative should have a joint agreement in place to cover travel to San Diego, CA before the Finals in 2024. The nonrefundable Entry Fee is currently $525. This is best if you have 2 to 3 Contestants entering the competition. Otherwise a single Contestant can just pay the individual price to enter. The registration period will end on September 1, 2024 or once we have reached our goal of 30 nonprofit contestants, whichever comes first. Should you have any questions or want more details feel free to contact us at anytime 619.800.2790. Thanks for all you do for our military veteran community. Lets have some fun.

Next Steps

This pageant/showcase is not difficult at all. Once your nonprofit has identified a representative that's willing and able (with your help, if needed) to make it to San Diego, CA in 2024, click the link above to pay the registration fee. During the check out process arrangements can be made to split the one payment into four payments to make it easier and more affordable for every nonprofit wanting to participate, to do so.

What to Wear

Bring at least 2 changes of clothing.

Pre Event Red Carpet: perhaps business casual

During the event

1st Category - Creativity: in this round judges will watch short videos and focus on how well nonprofit representaives promoted their nonprofits on social media and how creative they were in doing so. Cheers from the audience will help the judges. Extra points will be given if a representative conducted an interview with a news reporter (TV, newspaper or website article) in which they promoted their nonprofit. This can be casual or fun dress. All contestants will be in the first round; however judges will advance the top contestants to the next round.

2nd Category - Talent: in this round judges will score contestants on how well they performed their talent and cheers, if any from the audience. Contestants may submit short videos of them performing their talent. Contestants may sing, dance, play an instrument, do spoken word, excel in a sport, act out a part from a movie or play, etc. If you have special clothing relating to your talent, you may score extra points. This can be casual or fun dress. Judges will advance all contestants to the next round.

3rd Category - Formalwear: in this round judges will engage contestants with light-hearted questions and pick their brains to find out more about them for the viewers. Judges will score based on contestants speach, poise and choice of dress. Extra points will be given based on positive reactions from the audience. This must be your Best dress. Dress as if your going to be in someone's wedding. Judges will advance all contestants to the next round.

4th Category - Military Knowledge: in this final round contestants will still be wearing their best dress. No time will be allowed to change clothing. Contestants will be asked a general military question that anyone from any branch of military should be able to answer with ease. Judges will score based on how well the answer was articulated and body language used in the delivery. Extra points may be given for cheers from the audience.

Afterwards the winners will be announced. Everyone will be encouraged to take photos with the winners.

Post Event Red Carpet: all the winners first, then anyone else who wants to come on.

Undecided at this time if there will be an after-party near by afterwards.
