What is the difference between the two pageants?
The biggest difference between the two pageants is eligibility. You may register for one or both pageants. To participate in the Little Miss Buford Pageant, girls must live full time at a Buford mailing address or attend Buford City Schools. The Miss Sweetheart of Georgia Pageant is open to all girls who live within the state of Georgia.
What if my daughter won the pageant last year?
If a contestant won the Miss Buford or Miss Sweetheart of Georgia title in 2019, she may not compete for the same title in the same age division in 2020. For instance, if a contestant won Miss Jr. Teen Buford in 2019, she may not compete for Miss Jr. Teen Buford in 2020, only Miss Sweetheart of Georgia. For another example, if a contestant won Miss Jr. Teen Sweetheart of Georgia in 2019 and is not eligible to compete for the Miss Buford title, she may not compete in 2020 in that age division.
Will there be a photographer there?
Yes. We will have a professional photographer available if you would like to purchase a photo package. Additionally, the photographer will take pictures of the winners for the Buford newspaper and/or Buford Band website.
