Statement from Pageant Associates regarding COVID-19 – March 22, 2020

We are honoring the CDC recommendations, and local, state and federal mandates regarding our way of doing business.  “We”, meaning our Titleholders and Associates who are working from our homes.  Our Titleholders are utilizing every opportunity being offered by their educational institutions and/or their employers, as well as, our wonderful sponsors to stay connected by phone, email, online meeting apps, FaceTime, etc.  Some are even working to take care of their own businesses, employees and customers/clients.

Pageant Associates suspended all “in person” appearances until the CDC tells us that it is safe to resume public gatherings.  We will use social media to reach out with positive messages and to interact with those who support our Titleholders and their mission to represent our states at a national pageant that will take place, at some point!

The Miss Universe Organization has launched a social media movement #UniverseUnited, to encourage community building and support of each other during this time of separation.  Our Titleholders will be using Social Media to discuss and share stories on how they are coping during these uncertain times.  Watch their social media outlets for these stories, along with Facebook Live and/or Instagram Live events.

We have had questions as to when we will hold our fall competitions.  We are looking at the calendar for potential dates and venues.  We want to be proactive so that we are ready; but sensitive to the fact that the normal way of doing things will be altered for some time to come.  When appropriate, we will provide updates on our plans while monitoring the health and well-being of our families and community.  We will all get through this and be stronger because of it, as we are #UniverseUnited!
