Current Events Questions Are The
Ultimate Test of Your Pageant Interview Skills

Your judges might start out with basic, standard pageant questions but
if they're seriously considering you for the title they're going to ask tough current events questions.

But studying current events topics can be
frustrating and time consuming.

You're not sure what topics to study, where to find accurate current events information, and how to guess which questions the judges might ask.

And with a busy schedule, it's easy to procrastinate until it's almost too late.

You need a quick and easy way to
get up-to-speed on current events.

Current Events Cram Session is the
Fast Way to Prepare for Current Events Questions.

 Getting The Right Information is Essential

Some email news services don't include enough information to help you
fully understand the topic or help you guess which questions the judges might ask.

Other current events sources include too much information and it's
impossible to determine what information is directly related to the story.

Frequently Asked Questions


  • q-iconI signed up for an email news service but I'm still confused about current events. How is Current Events Cram Session different?

    Most email news services provide a brief, one paragraph summary of current events. Unfortunately, one paragraph is not enough to fully understand the topic. Plus, there’s no background information to include in your answer. With Current Events Cram Session you’ll receive a full summary including timelines, key word definitions and relevant statistics so that you can deliver a great answer.

  • q-iconI'm really behind on current events. How many current events topics will be included in my Cram Session?

    In today’s fast-paced news cycle, most top stories only last 24 to 72 hours. And most pageant judges can only remember the last four weeks worth of stories that they’ve seen or read about in the news. Your Current Events Cram Session will include the most impactful news stories from the last 8 weeks so that you’re prepared to discuss recent current events topics.

  • q-iconI don't have a strong opinion about most of the stories in the news. Do I need an opinion when answering current events questions?

    Unless you’re following current events 24/7 you probably don’t already have an opinion on many of the issues in the news. And that’s because it’s hard to develop an opinion without a complete understanding of the topic. Current Events Cram Session will give you the information you need to develop an opinion so that you can easily explain your opinion to the judges.

  • q-iconMy competition date is almost here and I need to get started right away. How will my Current Events Cram Session be delivered?

    Your Current Events Cram Session will be delivered to the email address you use at the time of purchase. You will receive an email with download links and passwords to each topic summary so that you have instant access to everything you need. Once you download and read each summary, print it out and keep a copy in your pageant notebook for a final review right before your interview.
