The Miss ETBU Scholarship Pageant is one of ETBU’s oldest and most cherished traditions. Miss ETBU represents the University both on campus and in the community, and is selected by a panel of judges based on her Christian character, poise, talent, and scholarship.

Miss ETBU receives a generous academic scholarship as well as the opportunity to represent the University throughout the community and region.

Miss ETBU 2020 Talent Selection Guidelines

The talent portion of the competition is for you to show off what makes you who you are! You will have a maximum of four minutes to show your talents. The score for this portion will go into your overall score, but the contestant with the highest score in the talent portion will also be recognized at the end of the pageant.

We want to get an idea of what you will be doing for your talent. Please fill out the form below to help us start planning ahead. We will get more detail at the Miss ETBU tea.  You will be allowed to change your talent until your official talent form is due.

You will be allowed to have an accompanist to assist you with your talent. However, duets will not be allowed. We want your talent to be about you. Having someone else play a large part in your talent really takes away from you during the pageant.
