Contestants and their sponsors met with the pageant committee to review all requirements and rules associated with the talent show on Oct. 8, the pageant itself on Oct. 9, and Northwestern’s homecoming parade on Saturday, Oct. 10.
Dr. Janet Cunningham, president, welcomed the contestants to campus.
Participants were assigned to jewel groups- Amethyst, Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire for judging- and had their photos taken for publicity purposes and a program. The committee covered rehearsals, judging criteria, wardrobe requirements and all of the other activities connected with the pageant.
