Conclave 2019 will be here before you know it – and wouldn’t it be amazing if every Chapter had a Sweetheart competing in the State Sweetheart Pageant? It is possible, but each Chapter needs to start planning now to have a Sweetheart selected so she may compete.
The guidelines for Sweethearts competing in the pageant are simple:
- Competitor must have been selected and crowned as a Chapter Sweetheart prior to Conclave 2019.
- Competitor must not have competed in the most previous State Sweetheart pageant
- Competitor must not have received a title in any previous State Sweetheart pageant.
A Chapter’s guidelines for selection of a Chapter Sweetheart vary from Chapter to Chapter, however, the competitor’s age should be considered carefully. Young ladies that are very young may not be comfortable competing in the State Sweetheart pageant. While there is no age minimum, a Sweetheart should not be older than the majority age of DeMolay (21).
If you have any questions regarding the State Sweetheart pageant, or if you need assistance in establishing your local Chapter Sweetheart program, please contact our Director of Sweethearts, “Mom” Pam Pensel, via email.
