Sunburst holds local events throughout the year at venues around the world. The “local preliminary” event is the first step to getting involved in Sunburst. Competition includes babies, (both boys and girls three years and under) and females up to 27 years old. If you are a finalist at your local preliminary then your $250 entry fee is paid to attend your State Competition. State Competitions are held during the months of April and May. There are fabulous awards at the state level including six foot trophies, savings bonds, gorgeous tiaras and much more. Being a finalist in any coordinator at your state competition qualifies you to advance on to the prestigious Sunburst International Finals held in Atlanta, Georgia every year in August. At this final level of competition every winner receives $1,000 with our top score winners receiving $10,000. Sunburst Internationals also has top modeling agencies in attendance whom are scouting for faces and talent that they can represent in their industry as well. Help make your Child a Star!
