Currently seeking contestants, the Maryland state pageant will be held March 5-7, 2004 in Rehoboth Beach, DE along with the Delaware state pageant. The pageant is open to teenage girls, ages 12-18 and scoring is based on interview, evening wear, academic achievement/community service and personal expression onstage. There are optional talent and essay competitions that are judged by a separate panel. There is no swimsuit competition. Two winners in two age divisions will represent Maryland at the 33rd annual Miss National Teenager Pageant to be held at Opryland USA, Nashville, TN in August 2004.
