Untitled-2The Wonderland of Trees event is eagerly awaiting their 5th year of celebration and fundraising. Many companies, churches, civic groups, and individuals in all five of our counties sponsor and decorate Christmas trees to be auctioned off, in which the proceeds benefit the United Way’s annual fund raising campaign. The United Way helps to ensure that our youth succeed, help people in crisis, promote health and wellness, and enhance the quality of life in southern West Virginia. Proceeds will go to 34 non-profit partners in southern West Virginia such as: The American Red Cross, Beckley Dream Center, Beckley Heath Right, Boy Scouts of America, and many more. The trees are absolutely breath taking, but we are always looking to make this event even better. That brings us to the first annual Wonderland of Trees United Way Festival Pageant! We hope everyone will come out and be a part of something so extraordinary!!

There are three segments of competition for this pageant.

  1. Interview – In this segment, each contestant will be interviewed individually by a panel of three judges. The judges will have approximately 3 minutes with each contestant. All questions will come from the biography sheet you fill out about your hobbies and interests. Contestants should choose an appropriate outfit for interview. A good suggestion may be a 2 piece skirt suit or a professional dress and matching shoes.
  2. Sense of Style – This is where one’s personality and creativity can shine through. We ask that the outfits be red, green, or gold. You can wear cocktail dresses or even just a cute outfit. The can be homemade or store bought.
  3. Evening Gown – Remember the judges don’t know the designer or the cost of your gown so choose a gown and color that fits your personality and compliments you best! Keep in mind that the dress needs to be age appropriate.

The top five finalists of each division will have an on stage question: This will be used for further scoring. A list of questions will be given upon paying your entry fee that could be asked; however you will not know which one of those questions you will get asked.
