Con

Beauty pageants twist girls' views of society and they become spoiled and do not focus on education
Misspriss14

Pro

Girls learn that they can be talented and pretty they gain confidence and it's an unforgettable experience for them. They can win money to help their family.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

It also shows girls that if they do not have the thinnest body or the perfect face that they are not good enough. Girls who do not win often throw tantrums because they are taught that they will get there way if they do not behave properly. Also, more money is often put in to preparing than what is won, especially at a young age.
