DISCLOSURE: Judges decisions are final. Any title may be relinquished if the national office conclude that a contestant has abused, misused or misrepresented AmeriFest or State Festival Associations. Grounds for termination include, but are not limited to: seen drinking or doing drugs in their title sash, in clubs or other facilities where it is not viewed in a positive light or sets a good example, seen on social media with nudity or profanity. All contestants and winners must hold themselves to a high moral standard and set an example for the younger contestants and represent their title with class and dignity. If the Grand Supreme National Titleholder were to win another title during their reign that permitted them from representing AmeriFest or their respective state title, the title and all responsibilities and appearances, including the crowning of her successor and scholarship/savings bond prizes, will be handed down to the next highest score behind her beginning with the Mini Supreme. We do not prohibit contestants from competing in other pageants during their reign, however if the AmeriFest titleholder were to win another title or have another obligation that prohibits him/her from carrying out his/her duties, then grounds for termination will apply. If any Preteen, Teen, or Miss winner becomes pregnant during her reign, all titles and responsibilities would be handed down to the Mini Supreme, and so on. This does not apply to Ms., Mrs., or Modern Woman divisions.
