It’s that time again! We are looking for participants for the upcoming Royal Pageant for the 2022 Grand Lodge Convention in Southern California. The contest officially begins on November 1, 2021. Deadline for participant notification is Sunday, November 14, 2021. We are encouraging not only our young ladies, but also our young men to get involved. Remember this is one of the few opportunities that we have to highlight our youth. So we are hoping that more of our lodges will join in and find someone to represent their lodge. It is important to let me know if you have a candidate as soon as possible. The candidates must be between the ages of 15-26, single or married and a member in good standing of the Grand Lodge of California.
Again, the contest officially starts on November 1. Tickets can be ordered from the Grand Lodge. The more tickets you sell, the more money your lodge will receive back. For the last pageant, more than 50% of the monies received went back to the participating lodges. All participants must have a minimum of $2,000 to qualify. Any tickets sold beyond that will determine their placement of the top five in the Royal Pageant. All monies must be mailed to the Grand Lodge in the registered mail envelope provided by the Grand Lodge. The envelope must be postmarked by Monday, April 25, 2022. Placement of the Royal Pageant will be announced in May. More information will be sent from the Grand Lodge detailing all the rules at a later date.
Remember, we need to know no later than Sunday November 14th, if you will have a participant to represent your lodge. Email me at email@example.com with participants name, age, address and phone number, please include your Lodge name and a contact number as well. Send a high-resolution digital photo of the contestant to the Grand Lodge and to me as soon as possible to be used in the newspaper and the pageant program.
It is a fun event and we hope that you encourage your youth members to get involved. We can’t wait to see how many participants we have this year; we must have a minimum of 5 qualified contestants to be able to have the Royal Pageant. Good luck to each of the lodges. I am Looking forward to hearing from you and making this a great experience for our youth.
