Contestants are judged on many different categories, but for child beauty pageants here are a few of the more common ones:
  • Casual
  • Swimwear
  • Model Search
  • Photogenic
  • Portfolio
  • Composite
  • Best Hair
  • Best Smile
  • Best Personality
  • Best Dressed
  • Formal
Even though contestants get asked series of questions also, they should not just be judeged on categories like these. They also compete in talent competitions in which many of them choose to dance.
