We are thankful that these title holders made the decision to participate in The Miss IMAGE Scholarship Pageant Experience. A unique quality about our pageant is that once the participant completes the pageant's Journey to the Crown program and the Pageant Day experience, she is not obligated to fulfill any duties as it pertains to her title or the organization nor is she able to represent the organization without organization approval. She is active with the organization starting at the Journey to the Crown and ending at the Pageant Day. The Journey to the Crown is a 7 month program that prepares participants for pageant day and for life. Afterwards, we encourage all past title holders to continue to support the organization through volunteering and mentoring.
