The pageant is open to women 26 years of age and up who are single, divorced or married. The selection process for receiving a title was done by submitting an application, photo and followed up by an interview over the phone. 47 women from across the United States will compete in Interview, Sportswear, Evening Gown and On-Stage Interview. “Oksana S.
