Miss Nebraska Job's Daughter Pageant
The position of Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter is a very demanding one. The Daughter chosen should exercise high moral conduct and exemplify the ideals of Job’s Daughters. She must work well with the Daughters as well as adults. She should put forth every effort to promote Job’s Daughters International, which includes writing articles for the state newsletter, giving speeches and creating goodwill and fellowship at all functions.
The Daughter selected as Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter will be expected to fulfill her obligations to the best of her abilities. This includes making Job’s Daughters the top priority among her extracurricular activities.
The Daughter selected as Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter works with the Daughter HIKE Coordinators and HIKE Committee in supporting and promoting the “Hearing Improvement Kids Endowment”, the philanthropic project of the Order. As a public relations emissary for Nebraska Job’s Daughters, this project is perfectly suited to the role of Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter.
The Daughter selected as Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter will travel with the Grand Family to represent Nebraska Job’s Daughters across the state, region and country. Planned travel dates are provided in the Contestant Agreement & Parental Permission form.
The Daughter selected as Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter is expected to participate in the Miss International Job’s Daughter Pageant, held in conjunction with Supreme Session. In the event she is selected as Miss International Job’s Daughter, according to the Rules & Regulations of the MNJD Pageant, Article VII, Section 1 (c): “she shall forfeit her state title and position. Selection of the new Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter shall be made in succession from the runners-up of the Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter Pageant at which she was named.”
To be eligible to compete for the title of Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter, as per Rules & Regulations of the MNJD Pageant, Article V, Section 1:
A Daughter must be a member in good standing in her Bethel and be at least sixteen (16) years of age but not yet twenty (20) years of age at the time of the International pageant.
A Daughter and her parent(s) or legal guardian(s) shall sign a consent form.
A Daughter will be eligible to compete in only two pageants for the title of Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter.
If a Daughter is a current Grand Bethel Officer (not GBHQ) and wishes to be a contestant, she must gain written approval from the Grand Bethel Committee.
The contestant may compete in team Ritual competitions but not individual ritual competitions due to scheduling conflicts.
A Daughter who has already held the title of Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter may not compete in subsequent Pageants.
A Daughter who has already held the title of Miss Nebraska Congeniality may not compete in subsequent Pageants.
A Daughter who has held the title of Grand Bethel Honored Queen may not compete in the Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter Pageant.
And per Rules & Regulations of the MNJD Pageant, Article V, Section 2:
Each Bethel in the state of Nebraska shall have the right to send one or more Daughter(s) to compete in the Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughter Pageant.
The members of each Bethel may select a candidate to represent their Bethel in a manner approved by the Executive Members of the Bethel Guardian Council.
Bethel Guardian Councils are discouraged from submitting the same Daughter as contestant in the MNJD Pageant as a candidate for Grand Bethel Officer/Grand Bethel Representative. This is a difficult position to put a Daughter into and it takes away an opportunity from another Daughter. If only one Daughter is eligible to participate in the Pageant and the drawing, then we ask that you defer to her choice in which she would like to participate. Please consider a Daughter’s ability to work well with adults and other girls before submitting her name, as this Daughter spends a lot of time with the Grand Guardian, Associate Grand Guardian, GBHQ, and MNC traveling and planning activities.
Reminder about Sponsors & Patrons
When collecting funds for your Sponsors & Patrons - it is important to note that these funds can not go into your personal bank accounts - that means no personal Venmo or PayPal accounts as well. Checks should also be written to your Bethel and not a person. This way the person making the donation can also get the tax benefit by donating directly to the Bethel.
So here’s what you CAN do! You ARE allowed to collect funds electronically if they are going straight into your Bethel account. Your Bethel can set up a PayPal account for your Bethel to share with friends and family that would like to donate.
