The first step towards the title begins with a local pageant near you! If you win or qualify on that level it’s off to Hollywood for Miss Florida USA or Miss Florida Teen USA! Both are seen on statewide and international television. Here is the latest information on our third annual Miss Tampa Bay USA and Miss Tampa Bay Teen USA Pageants both taking place Sunday December 9th at the Tampa Italian Club Theater in historic Ybor City beginning at 4:00pm.. What a great path to Miss Florida USA and Miss Florida Teen as it's time to find a new team to represent The Tampa Bay Region at state!
We will be calling of the nominees in the next few weeks but thought you might like a little advanced information. I have enclosed applications for the pageant. We have also sent this with other information via traditional mail. Please feel free to call us at 954 924-4949 to set up your appointment at The Miss Florida USA offices and to get you started on the road to Miss Teen USA; Miss USA and Miss Universe. As always check out our website at www.missfloridausa.com for all of the latest news and pageant fun!
What a great first step towards your career!

Headshot: Program Book
We need your headshot for the official program book that will be given to each delegate and available to the judges and sponsors. This does not need to be professional but it does need to be a “head and shoulders” shot. This needs to be sent via email to our home office at telair | aol ! com and please send in jpeg format.
Ads: Program Book:
If you have paid your $250.00 entry fee you are entitled to one half page ads for free. You can upgrade that to a full page of $50. If you are selling ADS as a part of your sponsorship they are to arrive designed and “camera ready”. If you need a graphic artist (we do not have that service here at Tel-Air) we would suggest using our designer Esteban Medaglia. He is available via email at beyondarkness | gmail ! com. To look at some of his prior work simply surf to http://www.missfloridausa.com/ads.htm.
-All Ads must be in JPEG format as a first choice; PDF is the second best option.
-Resolution 300dpi-No Lower
-Dimensions: FULL Page 8.5 x 11
-Dimensions: HALF Page 8.5 x 5.5
-ADS are Black & White. If you design an ad in color, it will most likely look completely different once it gets converted to B&W
-NO ADS ACCEPTED in Word or Power Point formats
I have enclosed the official competition application for you to fill out and return via email. It’s in the Word format so you can type it directly onto the file. This is important as it will be a part of a package given to the judges before the competition as well as a part of the pageant as we read bio notes during the swimsuit and evening gown competitions.
The delegates will have three changes in each competition. The pageant begins with our Miss USA delegates in red cocktail dresses while the Teen USA delegates will be in white cocktail dresses. This will be the wardrobe for the opening introductions and onstage interviews. The second phase is Swimwear with solid one or two piece suits of their own choosing. Because of stage lighting we strongly suggest the suits be lined. Then the competition concludes with Evening Gowns of your own choosing.
Each applicant will be required to provide a sponsorship registration fee of $250 or take advantage of our FREE SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE and sell three (3) program ads ($100 PER AD) and can compete for FREE! All fees to need to be paid in full to be eligible to compete for the title, ads with the FREE SPONSOR PACKAGE need to be completed by the Tuesday of pageant week to be eligible.
