The Extraordinary Heart Pageant 2020

The Competition and Expectations

  

The next Extraordinary Heart Pageant will be held on October 10, 2020 in the Mountain Ridge High School Theater, Frostburg, MD.  The pageant is open to young women from the Tri-State area (Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia) who are community service driven and are seeking to make an impact on the world around them. There are two titles awarded. Ms. Extraordinary Heart will be awarded to a young woman age 18-26, participation is NOT limited by marital status. Miss Extraordinary Heart will be awarded to a young woman age 13-17. Our pageant is community service focused and is NOT a beauty based pageant. It is strictly based on merit. We encourage women of all shapes, sizes, races, cultures, social classes and abilities to compete to be our ambassadors for the year. All we require is hard-working, deserving, accomplished, and driven young women to represent an organization we hold very dear. The young women who are awarded these titles will work with us to represent our charity and raise awareness and funds throughout their reign to assist the brave patients that we serve.


Ms. & Miss Extraordinary Heart will spend their year of service with us promoting the Extraordinary Hearts Foundation, and its mission to provide assistance to those with extreme medical needs, via appearances at events, fundraisers, outreach & community service opportunities throughout the Tri-State area.  There will also be photo sessions provided by Carisa Fazenbaker Photography, promoting of our sponsors and local businesses who are community service driven, promoting the beauty of our area, parades, and more!    Each titleholder must seek out at least 5 community service oriented (not parades, etc.) appearances on their own that must be approved by the board. The board will also organize 5 additional mandatory appearances for titleholders in addition to other optional appearances throughout the year.  This is the minimum expectation from our titleholders.  We encourage each titleholder to make the most of her year and participate in as many events and appearances as she is able.  


We are so excited to welcome you all into the family. It is important to us that this competition promote a strong sense of sisterhood.  This is where you will meet other young ladies who share the same passion for service as you do.  No matter who wins, each contestant will be expected to treat one another with LOVE and RESPECT.  We will not tolerate any form of bullying, and anyone found guilty of doing so will be eliminated from the competition.  Your scoring is based on YOUR performance, not the comparisons of yours against others.  You are only competing against yourself, not one another, so please look at this as a means of coming together and supporting one another.  We know any one of you has the potential to be an amazing titleholder, and we encourage you to see that in one another as well. 


 To be eligible:

  • Each contestant must raise a minimum of $50 for Extraordinary Hearts Foundation prior to competition.  
  • Each competitor must create a themed silent auction basket to be auctioned off at the pageant.  Minimum value should be $100.  (This doesn't mean your actual cost is $100, please take advantage of sales, discounts and donations from area businesses to create your basket!)

Our Co-directors

Meet Our Directors

We would like to take a moment to introduce, not only the co-founders of The Extraordinary Hearts Foundation, Inc., but the co-directors of The Ms./Miss Extraordinary Heart Pageant.  


Chloe and Carisa are our mother-daughter duo and the driving force behind all things Extraordinary Hearts.  While they are business minded and driven when needed, they also like to have fun and look forward to creating fun events and experiences for our new titleholders all while growing the foundation and supporting the amazing patients that we support.  Their goal is to create memorable shared moments for our titleholders and everyone that they come into contact with.


Chloe is a professional photographer and full time student with a double major in Criminology and Psychology.  She spent several years competing in the Miss America's Outstanding Teen pageant system and finished her career in that organization as Miss Maryland's Outstanding Teen 2017 and second runner up to Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2017.  Her experiences in pageantry, the connections she was able to create, and her personal growth were all reasons that she felt driven to create the Extraordinary Heart Pageant.  Opening doors and opportunities, like those afforded her, all while supporting the foundation that is near and dear to her heart makes it even more special.


Carisa, is Chloe's mom; a recruiter for a global human resourcing company and a professional photographer.  She got her introduction into pageantry when Chloe began participating.  She says that the confidence, public speaking, drive and personal journey that she watched Chloe take through pageantry are the reasons that she wanted to be part of creating the Extraordinary Heart Pageant.  Being able to facilitate those experiences for other young women and being able to support them in pursuing their passions is one of the  many reasons that she is excited about this opportunity.
