Ad pages can be designed at your discretion.
You may get your ad designed through Miss Minnesota for $50 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make arrangements for this service at least 2 weeks before the due date.
Ads must be submitted in color.
You may submit your ad(s) artwork by using the form to the right. Payment can be made by credit card in the form, or indicate that you intend to pay by check. Filename must include titleholder's first and last name and local title.
NOTE: If your ad comes with spelling errors or other corrections needed, we will notify you. However, if we do not receive your corrected copy by the time the program book is sent to production, your ad will NOT be printed and you will be issued a refund AFTER the state pageant is held.
All contestants are encouraged to sell at least two ads. Payment for ads in the form of a check should be made payable to Minnesota Educational Scholarship Fund, Inc. (MESFI) for the total amount due for ads purchased (no refunds given). If you have payment questions, please contact Gina Cavanagh at email@example.com. A payment “Square” will be available for credit card payments at Contestant Orientation, OR our preferred method would be to pay online – payment form is next to the ad page guidelines on the paperwork tab.
AD PAGE RESTRICTION THIS YEAR!! IF you did NOT have an official headshot done with our photographers, you will NOT be allowed to use another professional headshot from another photographer on your ad pages. It will not be accepted and will be returned. Only shots of you as a titleholder doing community service will be allowed in program book. Again this is ONLY if you did NOT use our photographers for official headshots.
If you have any questions about your ad or these specs, please email Alyssa Eutenauer at firstname.lastname@example.org
