MS. SPACE DEBRIS PAGEANT

Friday, September 7th @ 8:30 pm

Sputnikfest is seeking contestants to vie for the title of Ms. Space Debris, Queen of all that is Sputnikfest, the glitziest jewel in the tiara of what is arguably one of the top five space junk-related pageants in the universe. Although the title is "Ms." Space Debris, contestants do not necessarily have to be of the female gender. All that is required is that they must be a "human life form".

The competition consists of three categories:

  • Space-Age evening attire
  • Display of talent (at least what is loosely referred to as talent)
  • A brief question & answer period. DON'T WORRY! These questions are created in the spirit of Sputnikfest...wacky.

Ms Space Debris will reign over Sputnikfest, faithfully executing the duties involved in being the Monarch of an Intergalactic Festival. Wearing a cosmic crown and wielding a space-age scepter. Presiding over wacky events like the Cosmic Costume Contest and Alien Pet Competition, and participating in a handful of promotional events scattered throughout the following year.

The winner of the Ms. Space Debris Pageant will receive:

  • Flight lesson, courtesy of CAVU Flight Academy
  • One year of free haircuts, courtesy of Rose Colored Glasses Salon & Spa
  • $50 cash

Click here to register to become the next Ms. Space Debris or download and print the form here. Candidacy must be submitted by 4:00 pm, Friday, August 31. 

Contact the Rahr-West Art Museum at (920) 686-3090 orrahrwest@manitowc.org with questions.
