About Our Winners

The Miss Massachusetts USA and Miss Massachusetts Teen USA Pageants are looking for ambassadors to represent Massachusetts, not only here in the state, but also nationally.

Although the winners may not score the highest in every category, they will do well in each. They will be young women who possess many positive attributes, including poise, personality, intelligence and beauty. It is vital that they understand that, along with the prizes and glamour, there comes a responsibility to the pageant system, our sponsors, the community, and to Massachusetts. The winners immediately become role models, assuring it will be a year of personal growth and maturing that money cannot buy.
