Does Worlds Miss Tourism Pageant have a non-compete clause?
At the state level, we do not have compete clause in our state delegates' contracts.

You may never attend an event in one title and change to aTourism title midway or take multiple photos at the same event in a Tourism title and another. Not only do we deserve the respect of your full attention the event deserves to see one Queen representing one title.
