The usual interview, swimsuit, and beauty components are still there… but these are the awesome parts:
Marksmanship (20 points)
In the preliminaries each of the 50 contestants chosen will show their expertise in the use of firearms (pistol and rifle). The contestants will be judged on accuracy, use and safety as well as any additional expertise the contestant my possess. (This portion of the competition will be taped and edited for the live telecast)
Knowledge of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence (35 points)
Each contestant will be asked 3 specific questions that will demonstrate the contestants knowledge of these fundamental American documents.
- The judging is set to be done by 15 U.S. Military Officers.
- Part of the price is a Lifetime NRA Membership, and a Handgun and Rifle of her choosing. Badass!
According to the about page, we can look forward to this pageant July 4th weekend in 2012.
