Miss Role Model
Sim City

Dakota Brand

Hi everybody, it’s hard to believe it’s been a year already, which means it’s time to crown a new Miss Role Model Sim City. Now I will tell you, my heels aren’t going to be easy to fill, but if you happen to be the lucky young lady to replace me, you will become part of a long line of Miss Role Models and official Role Models for Girls Foundation ambassadors.

The road doesn’t end with the competition however, it only just begins as you take on the responsibilities every Miss Role Model has to every girl in the country. You’ll travel nationwide helping needy young girls, advocating proper education for teenage girls, helping create careers for young women just like you, and speaking to politicians to get them involved in the foundation and it’s mission statement.

You are here to inspire an entire generation of girls to break down barriers of society so they may become roles models themselves for our future generation.

So, do you have what it takes?

JUDGES

You will be judged by two guest judges and the contest host. They all won’t be easy to please, but they’re here to help you succeed, not watch you crash and burn.

1. kaylarox
2. hotaru801
3. singing_Noel

For those interested in being a judge or emergency judge, please PM the contest host.

ITINERARY

There will be an application round, and 3 main rounds. They will all be judged with the contest criteria.

2. Career Girl
3. Modern Princess

This will be updated every time a new round begins.

: TIPS :

HEADSHOT

Try to find the perfect lighting for your face, not everybody looks good in broad daylight.

BODYSHOT

Pose conservatively, but not too conservatively. Though be sure to remember we aren‘t looking for fashion models, we’re looking for role models. Think more Sears catalogue as opposed to Vogue.

Courtney Lamont



Name: Courtney Elizabeth Lamont
Age: 21
Hometown: Vancouver, Canada
Occupation: Interior Designer
Education: Sim City University, Majored in Literature



Bio: Hello, I’m Courtney! I’m a 21 year old Interior Designer, who originated from Vancouver, Canada. Although I studied Literature as a major I had always wanted to be an interior designer, however I started off working in a newsagents as a cashier – not one of my best career choices! I graduated university and immediately travelled to Sim City to make my ‘Dreams come True.’ I moved into a small apartment and started to search for places where I could start working, it just so happened that just down the road there was a interiors shop called “Interiors4you” which although not an amazing business was a good starting point. Eventually I reached the top of my career, which meant that I was to start a business of my own. I got several good reviews and before I knew it business was booming – literally! Currently, I work from home on my trusty laptop and occasionally going to design briefs (which I was required to go to.) I think life has been kind to me so far but I think this contest could take me even further. When I was younger I watched the Miss Role Models and aspired that one day I would be just like that, now is my chance!



Why I should be on Sim City’s next Miss Role Model?
I think that because of my life experience, with people and hard work, I could show people that just because you choose that you want to be something or someone does not mean that it will happen. You should take life as it comes! I think the contest will give me a chance to be the person that I always wanted to be.

Lil'B's Notes: Heyy! I hope thats ok. If its not give me a shout and I will change anything neccessary Thanks

xX Furuba all the way Xx
xX Miss World EVEN FURTHER!! Xx

Default Rebecca Dawn Middleton (Lauratje86) - Round 1



Name: Rebecca Dawn Middleton
Age: 24
Hometown: I was born in Oxford, England, but grew up in a small town near Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Occupation: I am a professional falconer at SimCity Bird of Prey Centre
Education: I studied Raptor Biology at the University of Bath, England



Bio: I was born in Oxford, a small city in England, but when I was 12 I moved to the Netherlands with my parents and my younger brother and sister, Jack and Alicia. We all struggled to settle there, and when I finished school I chose to move back to the UK to study. I have always loved nature and the outdoors, so I wanted to study something related to that. I originally planned to study Landscape Gardening, but a few months before my course started I went on an experience day at a local Falconry Centre and I was hooked! I was very lucky as I managed to get a place on a course to study Raptor Biology, and I loved every minute of it. The owner of SimCity Bird of Prey Centre read my dissertation, about human-animal interaction between members of the public and Harris' Hawks, and offered me a job. I jumped at the chance, even though it meant moving abroad again, and I'm so glad I did..... I am really enjoying my job - my favourite part of it is showing groups of school pupils around the centre. My favourite bird at the centre isn't actually a bird of prey; he's a raven named Quoth. As you can see on the photo, he and I get on pretty well!



Why do you think you should be Sim City’s next Miss Role Model?

I love nature, and am passionate about the environment, and I enjoy helping others to understand why! The state of the environment is very important to the public nowadays, and I often visit schools and colleges to explain to the pupils what they can do to make a difference. I love learning new things, and once I've learned them I relish the opportunities I have to pass them on to others. I truly believe that I could make a difference in people's lives if I was SimCity's Miss Role Model 2011, and I would love to have the chance to do so!

Is this contest for only Sims 2 or 3, or for both?
Also, are we limited to one entry?

I'm glad to see some entries coming in, and I have to say I'm very impressed.

^ ^

Though I will say some of you may want to reread the rules for the expected format of your application pictures. I'm willing to help however via PM if you'd like some clearing up on your application pictures, since I'd hate to deduct anybody points with how well you all are doing so far.

Otherwise, everything else is looking super.

pandoransark: This is only a Sims 2 contest, since I don't believe combination contests are allowed in the contests section anymore. Plus, including both would create disadvantages on both sides for very different reasons, which I'm sure we'd all rather do without.

I wish I could say entering two contestants would also be allowed, but because we don't have eliminations it would be unfair to the other contestants who only have one chance of placing in the top three.

: <

Sorry again.

Now since we have three entries so far, it's time to set a deadline on application entries.

Friday January 28th

In the case you enter but don't complete your application in it's entirety in time, you will be allowed to continue, and will still be judged. However, you will be deducted points depending on the missing content. So try to be punctual.

You know, if you want to let contestants submit two entries (or more), you may, but make an "elimination" for the apps, that only the best entry of one user may continue to the next round.

pandorasnark: I'll probably most likely be hosting a Sims 3 contest once this one is over. So be sure to keep an eye out.

kaylarox: I'm blushing. I would love to have you judge! I'll be sending you a PM soon.

^ ^

vhanster: Good job on your app entry. I'm really glad to see you joined, and as for your suggestion, I really appreciate it. Though I honestly would hate to eliminate anybody, 'cause I'd mainly like to keep everyone around to the end, but I'm going to leave it up to you guys. So if you'd like to put in a second entry, I'll allow it. Of course however, as long ya'll are aware only one will be continuing.

UPDATES

The deadline for apps remains the same. So let's get those in as soon as possible. I don't really expect us to reach ten contestants, but it would be nice.

To help, everyone is more than welcome to link their applications or even the contest thread ( if you aren't a contestant ) to their signatures, so we can get the word 'round. Plus, more contestants means more fun!

: D

We still need judges, and emergency judges if anybody is interested. So please PM me if you are.

I'm also going to be putting up some prizes today, but donations are still open and will remain open until the end of the contest. So if you're interested, please PM me, we'd all appreciate it greatly.

: }

Now I'm also thinking I'm going to be making avatars for our lovely contestants. So tell me if you guys are interested and I'll get cracking on those ASAP.

Default Irene Rogers
Irene Rogers






Name: Irene Catherine Rogers

Age: 21

Hometown: Bradford, England

Occupation: Architect

Education: University of Cambridge, Architecture Major

Bio: Born in Bradford, a small town in West Yorkshire, I lived there until the age of 18, when I moved to SimCity. What made me come here? The high salaries, the friendly people and the fact that my aunt offered me a free house, for which she pays the bill, so I thought that this was a chance I couldn't miss. I moved to SimCity, despite the insistences of my mother, who wanted to have me under her control, so I'd become a goody-two-shoes woman like her, but I'm a rebel, and I enjoy it.
As for my personality, I'm a really short-tempered person, but I enjoy a good joke, even if people make fun of me, I usually go along with it and have fun. I love animals, as I have a dog myself, named Chuck, who is, currently, my best friend.

Why should I be SimCity's Next Role Model? : Because I want to get out of anonymity, I want to become someone people will recognise on the street. I'm pretty sure it will help me become a famous architect, which is my lifetime wish.

@Singing_Noel: I think you should just extend the application round period. I don't think there'll be much of a competition if there's only 4 contestants. Not to mention that, based on past experiences, there might be people dropping out in the next rounds

#19 Old 28th Jan 2011 at 7:51 AM
Actually I agree extend it, because people do drop out every five mintues.

vhanster & kaylarox: No worries guys, no worries. We have time to extend the app round. Now of course if we manage to get enough people to continue ( at least seven ), we will need to make sure we don't doddle throughout the contest. Still, maybe we'll get lucky and get an extra week if we run on too long.

TheCreeper: I'm glad to hear that. Especially since I'd hate to see any of you go. Everyone of your contestants are so interesting I would really like to see them make it through to the end.

MaydayParade: We could really use another contestant if you could get your app in by midnight my time tomorrow. Especially since I don't really plan to continue this contest unless we can get at least 5 people by deadlin. No pressure though or anything.

XD

I hate to close this contest 'cause we're a person short, but it wouldn't really be fun if we didn't have enough people.

UPDATES

The deadline for apps remains the same.

Like I mentioned earlier, if we don't get enough contestants by tomorrow, I'm going to have to close this contest for lack of interest. Which really sucks 'cause I was really hoping we could have been able to continue. So please people let's try to get those apps in.

I totally understand kaylarox. ^ ^

Time really isn't an issue for me either, when it comes to this contest, but it's been a week, and we've already had one person drop out. So I honestly don't see this contest happening.

I am continuing the deadline for apps until tonight midnight my time, so I'm still hoping we get lucky and someone joins. Though I don't really want to get my hopes up either.

I do have some good news though. Supposing this one doesn't work out, I've decided the next time I try to run a contest, it will probably be a Sims 3 contest. So no worries, in a sense I'm not really giving up. Plus, I have a big parting gift for everyone who has joined, so no one will leave empty handed or unfulfilled.

Thanks to everyone who joined, and to all my judges!
