Eligible contestants are ages 0-14, identify as female, and have traveled along Pioneer Way in the last year
The Miss Pioneer Way Pageant is a one-day, all-natural (no makeup) event for those ages 0-14 who identify as female. It is sponsored by Miss Oak Harbor, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and Christ the King Church. It is organized and run by the 2022 Miss Oak Harbor Royalty.
Contestants must identify as female and be age 0-14 on June 25, 2022. They must have spent time on Pioneer Way within the last year, and they need to be available for the 4th of July parade should they be crowned Queen or Princess (ages 5 and up only).
There are seven age divisions, each with their own age-group pageant within the overall pageant:
Baby Miss Pioneer Way, ages 0-2 Check-in: 9:30am Pageant: 10:00-10:30am
Tiny Miss Pioneer Way, ages 3-4 Check-in: 10:00am Pageant: 10:45-11:15am
Mini Miss Pioneer Way, ages 5-6 Check-in: 10:45am Pageant: 11:30-12:15pm
Little Miss Pioneer Way, ages 7-8 Check-in: 12:15pm Pageant: 1:00-1:45pm
Young Miss Pioneer Way, ages 9-10 Check-in: 1:15pm Pageant: 2:00-2:45pm
Junior Miss Pioneer Way, ages 11-12 Check-in: 2:15pm Pageant: 3:00-3:45pm
Miss Pioneer Way, ages 13-14 Check-in: 3:15pm Pageant: 4:00-4:45pm
Yes, contestants must pre-register to participate. The deadline is June 17. Registration forms can be found on the MISS PIONEER WAY tab at MissOakHarbor.com. There is a $30 registration fee.
Contestants should arrive no later than the check-in time designated for their age group.
Beginning promptly at the check-in time for each division, contestants will learn a short dance to You’re a Grand Old Flag and will receive coaching in how to walk and present on stage and how to introduce themselves with the microphone.
There are age-group pageants all day long… come early to watch the pageants before your favorite contestant’s, and stay afterwards to watch the ones following. If parents or guardians can’t stay the whole day, we ask that they remain on the premises while their contestant is in our care.
Contestants perform the dance, walk the stage and present to the audience, and introduce themselves. Emcees ask each contestant an impromptu question. They are scored by a panel of judges, then the top two are crowned Queen and Princess.
Contestants are asked to wear something in patriotic colors.
Each contestant will receive a certificate of participation along with a Miss Pioneer Way goodie bag.
The top two in each division will be named Queen and Princess and will receive a crown and sash.
Immediately following each pageant, contestants will be photographed as a group, and individual pictures will be taken of the Queen and Princess. A press release will be sent to the Whidbey News Times and Whidbey Weekly, detailing the events of the day and recognizing participants and winners. All Queens and Princesses ages 5 and up will ride on the float with the 2022 Miss Oak Harbor Royalty in the 4th of July parade (detailed instructions will be emailed in the days following the pageant). Miss Pioneer Way Royalty may also be contacted throughout their reign with additional opportunities for public appearances, such as during National Night Out and the 2023 Miss Oak Harbor Scholarship Pageant.
The Miss Pioneer Way Pageant is a fundraiser hosted by the Miss Oak Harbor Royalty. All net proceeds from the pageant, along with any donations received, will be donated to the 2022 Miss Oak Harbor Royalty’s service project, The Whidbey Institute.
Each Miss Oak Harbor Royal Court chooses an organization to adopt as their service project. The 2022 service project is The Whidbey Institute, a South Whidbey nonprofit educational organization that focuses on generative leadership, ecosystem vitality, and community resilience by centering on four principles: DIGNITY – recognizing the inherent value and worth of every person, EQUITY – acknowledging that it is imperative to dismantle systems of oppression, REGENERATION – restoring ecosystems and ecological communities, and SYMBIOSIS – promoting mutually uplifting relationships through partnerships and land stewardship.
