CHARITY SCORING like all other finalists you have to have scored well in all the other 7 categories of the competition. Raising the most for Charity will not make you an automatic winner, the charity points will elevate your scores if you have already scored well but unfortunately they will not take you from bottom to top on there own.
CHARITY: FOEW are not a registered Charity we are a charitable organisation that supports and makes donations to registered charities.
CHARITY DEDUCTIONS Please note like all charity organisations we do make deductions to cover the costs of running the charity account and the charity winner’s sundries. We also take 25% of the total cost of staging the Grand Final in Disney which cover Stage, Venue, Accountant, Charity winners awards, Sashes, Crowns, Certificates and Sundries, no wages are taken from the charity account.
CHARITY FUNDING PAGES We do not encourage use of the on- line gift sites such as Go Funding or Just Giving, we find these difficult to monitor plus monies are impossible to equally share between the designated charities, which is the requirement
CHARITY EVENTS If you have organised an event or collected money under our banner or title for Headway East Kent or any other charity, ALL those donations MUST BE in accordance with the Charities Commission guidelines be paid over to the designated Charity you have collected for i.e. you cannot raise for Headway and they pay that money over to another charity account. Should you step down or decide to leave FOEW INTERNATIONAL the rules still apply to any monies you have raised under the banner of Face of Europe & the World, must still be paid into the designated charity account, It is illegal to withhold, misappropriate or redirect monies anywhere else. Should we feel that anyone is not acting in good faith or in accordance to our guidelines, we will report the situation to the charity commission in writing with a copy of our T & C's along any supporting evidence.
CHARITY MONIES: Please pay all charity money into the designated Charity Account in advance of your heat or the Grand Final. Please see Bank Account details Payment must have your name as the payment reference. Please also remember it is only money raised for Headway from your heat to the final that counts towards your Grand final scores, YOUR HEAT donations are not included because you will have already benefited from those points at your heat. All Charity money has to be paid into FOEW CHARITY account
CHARITY NOMINATIONS We do believe "Charity starts at home” The Grand Final the main nominated charity is HEADWAY EAST KENT.although from 2019 we will be nominating other organisations that will benefit form our donations. Please note at a local heat the Pageant Director of that heat has the opportunity in the run up to their heat, to nominate a local charity, ALL monies collected must then be equally shared between the nominated charity and our founding charities - After the local heat the All winners will be asked to continue their hard work and to raise awareness and donations for FOEW founding charity. <Headway East Kent>. & other nominated charities. Charity Donations at your Heat are NOT included or carried forward in your total for the Grand final
CHARITY POINTS The Charity element at the Grand Final becomes very important. Every finalist is asked to raise funds and awareness for our chosen charity, (Minimum amount of £100). From every age group the finalist that has raised the most funds in that category will be awarded a Charity sash, from the 4 sash winners the overall winner will be crowned Charity Queen, can come from any age group the finalist who raises the most funds will be crowned the Charity Queen. However two charity winners from each age group top UK & top International winner will automatically win a place in the TOP grouo. Please be aware that charity money alone will not make you the overall winner unfortunately if your scores in the other rounds have not been consistent and high enough for you to win a FOEW INTERNATIONAL title, your charity money alone will not elevate your position from say bottom to the top,
CHARITY POINTS AWARDED Your Charity points are awarded twice once to help you gain a place in the top ten, they are awarded pro-rata depending on your donations & ranking in the charity category
CHARITY SASH WON @ A LIVE HEAT At each live heat there will be a Charity Sash awarded, the winner(s) of the charity sash will have the opportunity to go to the Grand Final on the proviso that they are able to fund the Disney Experience yoursef by either 1) Self-funding 2) Sponsorship or 3) Fundraising for your own trip.
CHARITY SASH WON @ THE GRAND FINAL From each age group two charity finalists UK & International will automatically WIN a place in the top 10 or 8 DEPENDING ON NUMBERS - Please note UK & International pro-rata marks are separtely assessed .
CHARITY SCORING How does it work Your accumulative scores from All the 7 rounds including charity will determine your ranking as to whether you have WON a place in the top 10. Once you have WON a place in the top group, your pro-rata charity score will be added again to your score from the previous rounds, this is when the charity points become very important. A good collection can elevate your ranking improving your chances of winning a title, but of course if the girls already placed above you also have good charity points to be awarded, the effect will be that everyone’s position may alter , if you have no charity points to be awarded this will have a negative effect on your top 10 ranking. Please Note the overall Charity winner can be from any age group or ranking, the winner is the finalist who has raised the most funds for the charity. We will only crown & sash the overall Charity Queen & sash Charity Princess

Your personality, appearance, deportment (Walk) clothing, stage presence, behaviours are all taken into consideration when judging and NO two judges think or score the same this is why we have more then one opinion.
JUDGING: There are several categories in which a finalist is judged, these scores are collated and put on a specially designed spreadsheet, which only the Adjudicator has access too. Once the scores are entered into the Spreadsheet they CANNOT be altered, if you try to change the scores the spreadsheet will corrupt and everything will be lost!!, The spreadsheet after the 1st round in Disneyland will calculate and give us the top 10 only, therefore if your scores did not put you in this group, we are unable to give you your overall score or feedback. As we will not have them.
JUDGES We do our utmost you make sure a judge does not judge a group where they may know someone on more than a casual basis, they may not be related to any candidate or be a sponsor. Not all Judges judge every age group. We also have a secret judge this person is NOT a staff member but they will be watchful of people behaviours on and off stage. You must NOT approach a Judge during or after a show, as ALL Feedback IF there is any must be requested through FOEW – Please note we cannot guarantee Feedback or scores as not all judges give communicative feedback
LIVE HEATS Please note all entrance fees once paid are non refundable - WHY becuase we have limited number entering a heat and if you have reserved yours spot and paid , it means we have turned someone else away in favour of your entrance. we have to cover the cost of the Prize to Disney and therefore a refund is not possible :O) Sorry
LUGGAGE is your own responsibility. YOU have to make sure your cases are loaded on the correct coach. Luggage must travel on the same coach you are travelling on especially on the outward trip.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO LOOK AFTER YOUR PROPERTY NOT OURS. If you leave something behind and want it brought over the cost of bringing items to France IS YOUR Responsibility this also applies for the return trip if you leave something in Disney it is down to you to organise the return and pay the costs.
