On Thursday, September 27 at 7 PM, the 2018 Miss Subways Pageant returns! Last year, The City Reliquary Museum & Civic Organization revived the “quaint but outdated spectacle and gave it a modern spin”. The original Miss Subways pageants were held in NYC between 1941 and 1976.
City Reliquary has put out a call for: contestants who believe they should be the ambassador for the subway in its time of crisis. “Despite the potentially “miss”-leading title, we welcome contestants of all gender identities.”
The deadline to enter is September 7th at 11:59 PM. Finalists will be notified by September 14th.
TO ENTER: Send the following to to firstname.lastname@example.org:
1) a short essay telling us why you want to be Miss Subways 2018, what your favorite subway line is, and why it inspires/enrages/enchants you
2) a detailed description of your proposed performance. Show your love for our subterranean system through song, dance, poetry, or any other talent: Rubik’s cube solving, hula hooping, speed knitting, playing the sousaphone…surprise us!
3) a photo and/or short video (>3 minutes)
Competition will be fierce! The more compelling your application, the greater the chance of being selected to be a final contestant.
