We are proud to join with the USA National Miss Pageant and the American Women of Service Pageant. to provide pageantry opportunities of the highest quality. It is our goal to provide girls and young women with the tools to enhance and develop communication, self-presentation and interview skills, allowing them to become resilient, community minded adults. We are proud to offer opportunities to earn college scholarships at the national level to assist them in their academic journey. We strive to provide an opportunity that guides our participants to be community minded, resilient, strong and respectful citizens while learning to give back to the community where they live.
Crossroads Youth Center is a 501c3 charitable organization whose mission is to raise resilient children, youth, and teens by providing innovative programs that serve Maine youth to envision and navigate a course for a rewarding future that is characterized by achievement, independent thought, and social responsibility through education, mentoring and volunteering.

Our National Partnerships:
The USA National Miss Scholarship Organization is one of our national pageant programs. UNM combines all the excitement of pageantry with the high fashion and energy of a runway fashion show – while recognizing the personal achievement, community involvement and academic excellence of young women all across the USA. Their unique program is designed to award young women for their accomplishments, and to mentor them to reach their goals and unleash their true potential. USA National Miss awards six prestigious national titles and thousands in cash scholarships each summer at the national pageant. USA National Miss has been featured in the national media: Pageantry Magazine, MTV Made, Tiara Magazine, American Model & Pageant Magazine, The Pageant Planet, and Pageant Talk Radio just to name a few. With our unique approach, USA National Miss is changing the face of pageantry with the national director named the number 1 national director in 2015.

AMERICAN WOMEN OF SERVICE
Pageants are not just for girl!
American Women of Service is a community service based pageant, founded with a few goals in mind:
To empower women across the country to become the best version of themselves possible.
To encourage women who serve in their communities to share that love with others around them and inspire others to do the same.
To create a positive, encouraging, empowering sisterhood of beautiful women who are interested in motivating others through community involvement and community service.
Lastly, to promote anti-bullying at all ages and in all areas of life.
American Women of Service brings a unique pageant experience as it is part of a 501c-3 non-profit organization, Crossroads Youth Center. Through Crossroads Youth Center we work to promote bullying awareness through UNITE Against Bullying, The Crown CARES (Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools) and youth enrichment.
We Customize Your Pageant Experience
Crossroads Productions is following the trend and joined USA National Miss, a fashion-forward system that allows our delegates the opportunity to combine their love of pageantry with other optional elements to custom design their pageant experience- whether your focus is on fashion and modeling, or talent, education, community service, and mentorship we have a division for you. We celebrate individuality! At our state pageant, each delegate will compete in evening gown, interview and the signature red carpet runway fashion show- a fun, exciting and upbeat runway fashion event where each delegate can showcase their unique sense of style and personality on a real runway. We will also be awarding distinguished optional titles: State Role Model, Supermodel, Hospitality Queen, Spokes Model, and Talented Miss, Miss Maine Preschool, Primary and Elementary to the first runners up in the jr. divisions, as well as additional optional divisions and state titles where delegates can earn crowns, awards and prizes.
We skillfully mix social events within the competition so that delegates can have fun, meet new friends from across the state, and take home memories they will cherish for the rest of their lives. We also encourage community involvement and charity work through our platform, The Crown CARES, (creating a respectful environment in schools). And in keeping with the tradition of pageantry, our system encourages young women to be graceful, articulate, respectful, accomplished females with strong values and self worth.
CP represents a positive approach to pageantry – no swimsuit competition, no experience necessary, no mandatory talent and no make-up in our younger divisions. We strive to develop leadership, public speaking and communication skills while building self-confidence among the state and nation’s young women.
Custom Design Your Reign
Knowing that each young woman who participates in our program has unique talents, gifts, goals and interests, we fashioned our program so that our state royalty can custom design their reign to align it with their own personal goals in order to achieve their dreams. Whether your interests are geared toward a career in modeling, talent development, or want to further your charity work and find mentorship opportunities, we will provides a platform to fulfill dreams. Having a unique focus and custom designed plan for each queen allows for personal growth, success and fulfillment during their reign and beyond. In addition, our royalty participate in a variety of activities together, forming a bond of sisterhood that is sure to last a lifetime.
We offer many different ways you can compete and volunteer, give us a call and we can tell you how!
