My daughter and my granddaughter both we in miss America coed pageants . Love this system it is the best. Years ago and now it's even better. Thanks Patty for putting on one great show.
MAC Pageant is not just a Pageant!
Our daughter started pageants at 6 years old. we saw her confidence grow with each competition. We really preferred not to "paint her face" at such a young age and learned about MAC Pageants' age appropriate restrictions so we gave it a try. It turned out to be the best experience ever. We quickly learned that you weren't just competing in a pageant, you were joining a family. With the way the system is designed, the girls never competed against each other, they were competing against the judges. Everyone helps each other and cheers each other on, like family. Forgot you hair curlers, someone helps. Shoes broke, someone helps. Dress rips, someone helps. That's just how MAC families work. With so little of the score counting on physical beauty, girls are encouraged to grow, enhance and hone their inner beauty and strengths. Our daughter gained so many strengths from MAC that have helped her in achieving her dreams. She's continuing to succeed with the poise and confidence honed through MAC Pageants. We couldn't be more thankful or more proud! Because of MAC, we formed friendships and bonds with so many families that we will cherish forever. MAC is not just a pageant, it's a family!
An Experience not to be missed!
This is truly an amazing system! My daughter started as a little princess with her entire family in tow. She made friends and had fun while learning how to succeed in life at the same time. She learned how to interview, speak publicly and present herself with poise and grace. She made friends, we made friends. Many of which are still a part of our lives today. We spent 10 years with MAC, making family memories and watching our daughter grow into a confident and happy young woman, ready to take on the world. The skills she learned through competing at MAC are priceless. She is successfully completing her second year of college and is involved in so many organizations. She got her foundation to succeed in the world with the help and support of MAC and their caring staff. Her first college roommate was a girl she met through MAC at age 8! My daughter had such fond memories of her years at MAC with the staff, her friends and her family that she asked to be on staff the past 2 years. She wanted to help other young girls have the same experiences she did and for them to walk away knowing the crown was not the ultimate prize, but that the friendships made and experiences offered were what they would truly remember and build a foundation for a successful future from. As parents we can only teach our children so much, some things they just have to do for themselves, and MAC allows that to happen!
Time of your life for family and daughter!
When our daughters were very young, my wife had this “idea” that it would be good for our daughters to be in pageants. As a football guy, and a man, I had a stereotype that this was a very bad idea. But, the convincing thing my wife said was they would gain experience in public speaking and interviewing. As a businessman, I knew these skills were invaluable. We went through several pageant systems and, quite frankly, our daughters were successful in all of them. But my wife told me about one system that really seemed attractive to our youngest daughter. But, it would require our family to spend Memorial Day weekend in Orlando. And, if our daughter won, we would spend the entire week of Thanksgiving in Orlando. I thought she had lost her mind! Those were precious holidays! But I decided not to fight the women, and attend a pageant that precious Memorial Day. My wife had met a bunch of great women on a blog before we even arrived. From the moment we checked in to the hotel it was like a family reunion! That first day I met a few of the “competitor’s” fathers, and today they remain some of my best friends! I think that my commitment to MAC came the second day when our family was on a bus to Disney. We talked to several girls who were older than our daughter. We saw, first hand, how these girls were so poised, classy, confident and genuinely loving. We knew we needed to call this pageant system “home". You will have the time of your life for family and daughter!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN AMERICAN COED?
A Coed is a female attending a co-educational college or university. A young woman referred to as a Coed calls to mind a dedicated student, preparing herself to become the very best person she can be, while having a blast at the same time!
IF I WIN MY MAC STATE PAGEANT, WHAT WILL BE REQUIRED OF ME?
Each MAC STATE PAGEANT WINNER is required to attend the National MAC Pageant to compete for the Queen's title for her age group. If the state pageant winner does not sign the MAC State Winner’s contract & attend the National MAC Pageant during the week of Thanksgiving in Lake Buena Vista, FL, she will forfeit her state title, all prizes, & cash awards.
DO I HAVE TO DO A TALENT TO COMPETE IN A MAC PAGEANT?
Our talent competition is optional. It is scored by a separate panel of judges than the panel that selects the overall queen in each age division. Optional contests have absolutely no bearing on who wins the pageant.
