Entry Form Instructions

The form cannot be saved and revisited so it is advised that all the needed information be gathered in anticipation of completing the form in one sitting. Every field on the form is “required”, meaning it will not submit if a field is left blank.

We also require a birth certificate from contestants. In order to attach the birth certificate, you will need to scan it as a PDF or JPEG and store it on the computer you will be using to complete the application.

To access the form, visit our site at www.kafs.net, hover on the PAGEANTS button and scroll down to the MISS TEEN button, clicking on the button. A page featuring a photo of last year’s pageant winner appears. Scroll down to the blue bar below the photo and click on the REGISTER button at the right.

When the form appears, fill in each field. Please use upper and lower case, correct spelling and grammar.

At the point where it asks for the birth certification, you will need to find it in your storage and OPEN it so the name of the file appears in the window.

Read the “terms and conditions” and AGREE TO them.

Click the “I am not a Robot” and SUBMIT button.
