Seeking Contestants for Little Princess Tomato & Sir Catsup Contest
Entry deadline is Saturday, June 28, 2014
Contact: Stephanie McGovern, Coordinator
The 16th annual World's Largest Catsup Bottle Festival will be held Sunday, July 13, and girls and boys are needed for the GSC Credit Union Princess Tomato and Sir Catsup Contest. The deadline to enter the contest is Saturday, June 28, 2014.
All contestants must be ages 3 to 6 years old on Sunday, July 13, 2014. There are no residency restrictions - Catsup Bottle loving kids are welcome from anywhere! The contest will be held at 10:30AM on the Laura Buick GMC Big Tomato Main Stage during the World’s Largest Catsup Bottle Festival at the American Legion Post 365 in Collinsville, Illinois.
It is very important to note that this is intended as a fun event. Judging will not be based on any “professional” pageant rulebook. Anyone not on their best behavior will run the risk of being disqualified. That goes for parents, too. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, and no one else should either.
Participants should appear on the day of the pageant in summer clothes and keep the thoughts of ketchup, classic cars, summer fun, and the Catsup Bottle birthday party in mind. Each child will be interviewed and asked to perform on stage. They will need to state their name, age, answer a simple question or two, and recite their own Catsup Bottle fun fact. There will also be a talent demonstration such as singing, dancing, a magic trick, etc.
There is a $20 entry fee. Everyone must be pre-registered. There will be no registration the day of the event.
- ALL contestants will receive a goody gift bag and a bottle of Brooks ketchup.
- Finalists will also receive a contest participation medal.
- Princess Tomato and Sir Catsup will receive a crown, a sash, a trophy, plus other gifts from our sponsors.
