Contestants are judged on the following phases of competition:
Personal Interview ~ In the Personal Interview phase of competition, each contestant will speak with five (5) judges for three (3) minutes each in a "Round Robin" format for a total of fifteen (15) minutes per contestant. Questions may range from general inquiries to specific interrogations about a contestant's platform. However, in this pageant system political questions from the judges are highly discouraged during interview. This phase of competition, unlike the others, is conducted privately among contestants and judges and will not be viewed by the general public on stage. The Personal Interview counts for 25% of the contestant's overall score.
Swimsuit & Fitness ~ In the Swimsuit phase of competition, contestants are required to walk across the stage in a swimsuit and high-heeled shoes of their choice. In recent years, two-piece swimsuits have become a popular choice among contestants but one-piece swimsuits are also allowed. Per policy of this organization, thongs, string bikinis, and/or Brazilian bikinis are not allowed. All swimwear must be appropriate for a family environment. The Swimsuit competition counts for 25% of the contestant's overall score.
Evening Wear ~ In the Evening Wear phase of competition, contestants are required to walk across the state in an evening gown of their choice. Judges will score based on poise and grace of each contestant. The Evening Wear portion of the competition counts for 25% of the contestant's overall score.
Onstage Question ~ During this phase, contestants are asked a random question from a predetermined list that they must then answer onstage with no preparation. Questions normally allow the contestant to talk about herself or give her opinion of general issues. Current events are not normally discussed during this phase of competition in the Miss United States system. The Onstage Question counts for 25% of the contestant's total score.
