Miss Oklahoma Resume' Instructions

2019 Local Candidate’s

Resume' Instructions

This is your opportunity to demonstrate to the judges why they should consider you for the job of Miss SWOSU. You may list as many or as few items under each category as you desire. Your only restriction is that it must follow the established format and it must fit on one (1) page. This page, combined with the Social Impact Statement, will comprise your entire application for this job. The judges will receive exactly what is submitted. Any item incorrectly submitted or submitted after the deadline will not be given to the judges. The candidate may explain the lack of judging materials during her interview, if she so chooses.

It is important that these instructions are followed, even when using the preformatted page included:

  1. Create a “New” document with your computer’s Word program.
  2. Set margins for 1" on all four sides. The font style may not be any smaller than 10 and no larger than 12-point-type, using the Times New Roman font style. Please refer to the attached sample to verify you are following the requested format. 
  3. With the justification set for left, type Name: in bold. Following the colon (:), hit the space bar twice.  Then, type your name as you wish the judges to know it. (If your name is Deborah Jane Smith and you want to be known as “Jane Smith," please type Jane Smith).
  4. Then, move to the next line and type Title: in bold. Following the colon (:), hit the space bar twice.  Then, type your local title.

Oklahoma State University - Freshman).
