About The Program

The Miss Kentucky's Outstanding Teen (MKYOT) Competition's Princess Program is for young ladies age five to ten years old. The MKYOT Princess Program is an extension of Miss Kentucky's Bluegrass Princess Program with a goal of mentoring those young ladies who have an interest in advocating community service and of someday participating in the MKYOT Scholarship Competition and/or the Miss Kentucky Scholarship Competition. MKYOT candidates will mentor the MKYOT Princesses. All MKYOT Princesses will participate in some aspect of the stage production at the MKYOT Competition in Louisville, KY. Princesses will also be recognized in the MKYOT Competition Program Book.

The Princess will have the opportunity as provided by the local Competition director and local titleholder to be a part of the titleholder's year of service. She is encouraged to go shopping with the local titleholder, to accompany the local titleholder on appearances, exercise with her, etc. The local titleholder is encouraged to engage her Princess in any activity that she can to make her feel part of her year of service as she prepares for the MKYOT Competition.
