PRIME is an opportunity to crush goals in a safe environment while you gain skills and ways to use your title to be the lead in your own life story. And at the end, you get to showcase your growth and compete at the National Competition in 2023 for the title of Ms. or Mrs. USA Prime/USA Prime Ambassador.
Here is a timeline:
Applications are taken on a DAILY basis and we decide EACH WEEK who is able to move forward to the PRIMEr Program and Title Qualifier which is the preliminary to receiving a state/regional title. Once you pass your Title Qualifier you will receive your State/Regional Title and can start using it, attend the mastermind classes, Queen Parties, photoshoots and Optionals.
PRIMEr Program: This 1 week to 90 day virtual program is designed to start your journey to discover what you want to accomplish in the upcoming year. We will introduce self care and goal setting concepts and we will be with you the whole way. You will also choose 1 of the 3 categories to showcase at the Title Qualifier and will be given additional training and support on whichever you choose. The categories to choose from consist of: Interview, Costume with Introduction, or Evening Gown.
Title Qualifier: After your initial prep with our PRIMEr Program you will then be able to Virtually or In Person showcase your starting point efforts in the areas of interview, costume, or gown. You will receive feedback. The title qualifier is a PASS/FAIL system. You will not be competing with anyone. If you do the assignments, you will pass and will then move onto the State Crowning and be part of the 2023 Prime Queen class and start using your title within the Mastermind, Queen Parties, photoshoots and within your community. NOTE: You have to complete a Title Qualifier within 90 days of accepted application or you will have to go back through the program again and pay another $199.
Title Crowning Ceremony: If you choose to qualify in person, you will be crowned and given your sash right at the Title Qualifier Crowning Ceremony and you will need to notify Prime that you are going to come in person and will need to pay your Qualifier dues at least 4-5 weeks prior. If you choose the virtual option, your crown and sash will be sent to you. You will then be introduced online. You can choose to attend a crowning in person at a later time, even if you have already received your title virtually.
There are 6 Divisions for the National USA Prime(TM) Titles and 2 Divisions for the National USA Prime(TM) Ambassador Titles. Becoming a state titleholder is the prerequisite for competing in your respective USA Prime(TM) National Competition division. Becoming a regional titleholder is the prerequisite for competing in your respective USA Prime(TM) Ambassador National Competition division.
