How much will I be expected to spend on wardrobe, training, etc?

You may use your own discretion, but it is not necessary to spend lots of money on clothes, make-up, hair, etc.

During an interview, Miss Iowa 2001 Erin Smith commented, ā€œI spent no money to compete for my local. I borrowed a swimsuit from my sister and wore my high school prom dress for evening gown.ā€
