MS SPACE DEBRIS PAGEANT
Sputnikfest is seeking contestants to vie for the title of Ms Space Debris, Queen of All That is Sputnikfest, the glitziest jewel in the tiara of what is arguably one of the top 5 space junk-related pageants in the universe. Although the title is "Ms" Space Debris, contestants do not necessarily have to be of the female gender. All that is required is that they must be a "human life form".
The competition consists of three categories:
- A Space-Age evening attire
-A display of talent (at least what is loosely referred to as talent)
-A brief question & answer period. DON'T WORRY! These questions are created in the spirit of Sputnikfest...wacky.
Ms Space Debris will reign over Sputnikfest, faithfully executing the duties involved in being the Monarch of an Intergalactic Festival. Wearing a cosmic crown and wielding a space-age scepter. Presiding over wacky events like the Cosmic Costume Contest and Alien Pet Competition, and participating in a handful of promotional events scattered throughout the following year.
All interested parties should submit their name and contact information to: Rahr-West Art Museum, 610 N. 8th St., Manitowoc, WI 54220 ATTN: Ms Space Debris. You may also submit via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by 4:00 pm on Friday, September 8th, at our Aliens in the Alley Event. The pageant will begin at 8:30 pm.
