Become a Teen Candidate
After completing your local program paperwork, your next step to becoming a local candidate is to register for a Children's Miracle Network by clicking on “New Contestant Registration.”
You only have to register once a year even if you compete in multiple local programs. You are not required to raise any funds, but you must register for a page. All teen candidates are required to raise or pay an entry fee of $175 to the Miss Greater Des Moines Organization.
