The Queen will receive her crown, Queen's banner, the trophy, flowers, and a cash prize, along with other prizes as determined by the director. As the Good-Will Ambassador of the Newport Lions Club, the Queen will be invited to all Lions Club Ladies’ Night functions and other official events at the expense of the club.
The Queen will serve as official hostess during the Hill Climb Festival Weekend. She must also agree to appear for and on behalf of the Newport Lions Club or the director of the Pageant Committee in her official capacity as requested throughout the year, until her successor is crowned.
The Queen, if eligible, will represent the Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb in the following year Indiana State Festival Association Scholarship Pageant, held in January each year during their annual convention. Additional information on the ISFA Pageant is available from the Pageant Committee or at www.indianafestivals.org.
If for any reason the Queen is unable to discharge the duties of her title, she will forfeit all her prizes and title to the First Runner-Up, who will assume all duties assigned to the Queen until the next Queen is crowned. Should the First Runner-Up also be unable to assume the duties of the Queen, succession will follow to the Second Runner-Up, etc. Any falsification of a contestant’s information, either on paperwork or verbal form during the competition, can result in automatic disqualification at the discretion of the Director. You are encouraged to just simply be yourself during the entire pageant. We are looking for the all-natural, personable, and outgoing person.
The contestants will vote for one contestant as the recipient of the Miss Congeniality Award. The judges will select one contestant as the winner of the Costume Fashion Judging portion of the Pageant.

Sportsmanship: Any contestant showing bad sportsmanship will be disqualified. If you are a victim of this, please report it to the pageant director and each incident will be investigated. Any contestant or chaperone caught using foul language or threatens a contestant in any way may cause the contestant to be disqualified. All abuse will be reported to the authorities. This applies to BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER the pageant. Any parent or fan of a contestant showing bad sportsmanship before, during, or after the pageant, may result in that contestant not being allowed to compete in Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb Queen Pageant in the future. This decision is at the director's discretion.
Apparel: Costume Fashion is in replace of the typical evening gown portion of a pageant. Contestants are asked to model a costume that represents the 1920’s, 1930’s or the 1940’s. The idea is to wear something that would have been worn during the time that the cars competing at the Hill Climb were from. There are many different ways to approach this portion of the competition. Examples can be found on our Facebook Page: Newport Hill Climb Queen’s Pageant. The most important thing is to have fun with your costume the possibilities are truly endless. If you have any questions or concerns about your costume or are in need of possible ideas please let us know and we can lead you in the right direction.
Queens may only hold one (1) other title while reigning as the Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb Queen. This is to make sure both pageants are promoted successfully.
Throughout the year there will be various events that each queen should attend. She must commit to attend 5 or more public events of her choosing during her reign to promote the pageant. Each queen is required to attend the next year’s competition to help with the pageant and to crown her successor. She should also promote the Festival and work to get contestants for the Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb Queen. She should report all of her appearances to her director.
During title appearances, Dress pants or dresses are preferred. Blue jeans and shorts are permitted at public functions excluding other pageant events, but may NOT have holes in them and should be fit appropriate. It is recommended that if you are attending another pageant function, no matter what the affiliate, then you should dress in business wear or a dress. Multiple piercings and tattoos should always be covered up when wearing your crown and sash. Be considerate of conservative necklines, so you are not showing too much cleavage, midriffs, side cutouts, high slits, and short hem lines, as a lot of other pageants or festival events generally have visiting royalty to join them on stage. If your dress is too short, people can see up the dress. When appearing, be sure to be well dressed. Remember, you are wearing a sash that reads “Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb Queen”. Your appearance, attitude, politeness, and manners also attract others to our pageant so be sure it is a positive impression you are leaving. Always be aware of what you are saying. Never criticize others or use foul language while representing our pageant. The same could be said for family members or friends who travel with you to Newport Hill Climb Queen Pageant appearances. They are a reflection of you, so please ask your chaperone(s) to dress, act, and groom accordingly.
