Please Note: For the Dr. competitions - On April 26, 2022, it was proposed and approved by the DWP advisory board, "going forward with the 11/2022-10/2023 competition year, no national-level appointed title should be held two consecutive years by the same individual. Should there be extenuating circumstances [and the individual could not compete], which are deemed acceptable, the individual should be assigned an alternative title and the individual purchase their replacement sash, etc."  However, skipping a competition year is allowed (e.g., 2020 and 2022). The proposal was applied to the Dr. World international/country/national titles as that was the example provided in the proposal. But, the intention of the proposal was for all DWP titles (Ms. Achievement [MA] World/U.S.A. & the Dr. Pageants) to be considered. The proposal and approval were not documented as such. So, this oversight will be corrected on  8/1/2022 MA and 10/23/2022 Dr. Pageants, after the last competition of the 2022 calendar year, and going forward.
