All little girls who are full time residents of Watkins with a Watkins address, who have completed kindergarten through second grade, may qualify for the pageant.
Each eligible candidate must find their own sponsor. Also, any business in Watkins seeking to sponsor a candidate may do so, as well.

The Little Miss Watkins Tea Party will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 18, at the Watkins Village Hall. At least one parent or guardian should attend the tea party with the candidate. Candidate pictures, pageant practice and dance routine will be explained at the tea party, so all sponsored candidates must attend.
The Little Miss Watkins Pageant will be held at the grand stand in McCarthy park at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3. Alternate rain location will be held at the Watkins Village Hall. All candidates must be at the hall by 6 p.m. on pageant day for interview questions and final pageant preparation.
