During the pageant the contestants were judged on several criteria – interviews with the judges 40%, evening gown 40% and fun fashion 20%.

Tracey Jamison, director of the state pageant said, “I am quite pleased with the young ladies the judges chose to represent New Jersey at the Junior High, High School and College level. Throughout the weekend the contestants exhibited poise, charm and intelligence. I truly believe Cianna and the other New Jersey young ladies have a chance to win the national title and scholarship prize.”
