Age Division QUEENS The overall winners will be determined by the judges in onstage presence in personality and confidence and the judge's ability to see the potential of the contestant to benefit from her role as a Miss Exceptional Queen. ONE OVERALL WINNER in each age division will receive: Official Miss Exceptional crown, banner, medallion, and Miss Exceptional Royalty photo shoot. All participants will receive a crown, medallion, and sash and will be a member of the official Miss Exceptional Princess Court and will be invited to attend appearances and events along with the Queens Court. Part of the mission of the Miss Exceptional Pageant is to provide a platform to bridge gap that exists among members of the disability community. Miss Exceptional encourages participation in appearance events, regardless of placement during the competition. The Miss Exceptional Pageant is a tool to assist the contestant in gaining friendships, mentors, and new skills through the events and appearances offered.
