Are we allowed to compete in other pageants if we are titleholders?
Yes but IF for some reason a state or national title holder (grand supreme) were to win another title during their reign that permitted them from representing AmeriFest or their respective state title, the title and all responsibilities and appearances, including the crowning of her successor , will be handed down to the next highest score behind her (normally Mini Supreme). We do NOT prohibit you from competing in other pageants during your reign, however if you do win a title or have another obligation that prohibits you from carrying out your duties this would apply. If any Preteen, Teen, or Miss winner becomes pregnant during her reign, all titles and responsibilities would be handed down to the next highest score in line. This does not apply to MS, Mrs., or Modern Woman divisions.
