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.

Awesome Pageant!!

MAC Pageants became a part of my family’s lives 16 years ago when my daughter competed in the Sweetheart Division (Minnesota) and won her first Queen’s title. Since then, we’ve stayed connected and close to MAC Pageants, locally and nationally, and we’re so thankful to be a part of the MAC family. Like most parents, my husband and I were unsure about having our daughter compete in pageants, yet we ‘relented.’ In no time, our reservations were put to rest! Our experience then, and over the years, has been nothing short of wonderful, especially for my daughter! So, if you’re a parent that’s unsure about having your daughter involved with pageants, let me share……Yes, MAC Pageants really is all about family! Yes, they really do make every young girl feel special! Yes, the skills these young girls develop through interview, speaking, acting, etc, really do evolve into meaningful and useful ‘life’ skills! Thank you, MAC Pageants, especially Patty and Josh, for all that you and your pageant, have done to support the growth of my daughter into a well-rounded, talented and lovely young lady. If given the chance, we’d do it all again!

Love Mac Pageants

I did this Pageant as a child and I highly recommend this Pageant if your child has never done one before, do to the fact it is a very laid back pageant and they are very friendly.
