heels.  If necessary, smaller groups of no more than 5 competitors will additionally perform ¼ turns that are directed by the
head judge.   Uniform: Bikini or two piece swimsuit and high heels with numbers worn on the left side of the bottom suit.
Make –up, jewelry, eccentric wear may be worn.

 in order to break a tie. Each athlete will be introduced in numerical order and will execute the pattern model walk as in Round
two. The uniform in this round is the one piece suit w/high heels and number worn on the bottom left side of the suit. It is
usually designed for the entertainment of the audience but may be used and scored to break a tie.

(Fitness only): is when the contestant performs their routines.  Each athlete will be introduced in numerical order and will
perform a maximum of a two minute routine.  Routines should be well choreographed, creative, performed at a high
tempo/speed.  Routine should include: elements of strength, example straddle hop, leg extension hold, and or one arm push
ups, elements of flexibility for example, high kicks, side splits and finally the speed or tempo demonstrates a degree of
cardiovascular fitness, stamina, and endurance.  Uniform: Athletic exercise gear and numbers will be worn on bottom left
side of the outfit.
 

4.  Overall WinnersWhen there is more than one class, the class winners are bought on stage into one group and will
perform a series of ¼ turns wearing a one piece suit and high heels.  The head judge may move contestants at the judge’s
requests.  Once this is completed contestants are given approximately 30 seconds of model walking music to strut their stuff
to let the judges get one more final look.  If more than two classes are present then each contestant must be scored, first,
second, or third. Uniform; one piece suit with heels.
  

5.  Awards - (Figure Athletes only):  Unless specified by the promoter the top five will receive awards in each class upon
completion of the judging. The uniform will be a one piece suit with high heels in which pictures will be taken for additional
publicity and the NPA’s website or future promotions.
