Every year, approximately 2.5 million women and girls throughout the United States participate in beauty pageants.
Are you considering being part of one? Do you have a child or loved one who’s interested?
Some people have concerns that beauty pageants have a negative impact on a woman’s confidence and self-esteem. In reality, though, the opposite is true.
Explained below are some of the most significant ways in which beauty pageant participation can improve a woman’s confidence and self-esteem.
Empowerment Through Discipline
Preparing for a pageant requires a lot of self-discipline and perseverance. Participants have to dedicate time to perfecting their talent, studying for the interview portion of the event, and making sure they’re stage-ready.
When women and girls see that they can set goals and work hard to achieve them, they often feel empowered and capable of conquering other difficult tasks in their lives moving forward.
Courage to Try New Things
Being part of a pageant also gives young women the courage to try something new.
First-time pageant participants may feel nervous at first about stepping on stage. However, they often overcome their nerves and take part in the pageant anyway.
By doing this, they can develop a greater sense of confidence. They can also feel better about doing other new and exciting things in the future.
Pageant participants can learn a lot about themselves as they prepare for the big day. They have an opportunity to further develop their talents. They can also identify potential weaknesses that they need to improve.
This work helps women to understand themselves better and learn more about what they want to do in the future. They may discover that they love performing on a stage, for example, and want that to be a part of their career later on in life.
Improved Stage Presence
Throughout pageant history, women and girls have stood on stage and showcased talents and answered questions from a panel of judges.
Many pageant participants agree that learning to improve their stage presence and hold their judges’ and audience members’ attention has served them well later on in life. Having confidence and stage presence helps them to be better public speakers at work and in their everyday lives.

The Regency International Beauty Pageant was established in 2013 by Terri Dingle.
Dingle named this unique pageant, which offers opportunities for girls and young women in several age groups, after the Regency era (1811-1823). The name is a reference to both royalty and pageantry, as well as other key values from that time period, such as elegance and etiquette.
The next pageant will be held from July 29-August 1, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dozens of countries will be represented, from the United States and Mexico to Vietnam and Peru. Winners will get to enjoy a seven-day queens’ cruise, as well as a chance to work with Art and Beauty Magazine and walk in New York Fashion Week.
