New program for 2020
Miss Maine Dirigo
In our continuing effort to support and provide each of our delegates with the opportunity to attend a national pageant, Crossroads’ Maine Academic Scholarship Pageant has developed the Dirigo program that honors loyalty and longevity within our sisterhood.
The title, to be known as Miss Maine Dirigo, will be awarded annually to a local Miss or Teen delegate that meets the following criteria:
Has competed at least 6 times and/or four divisions without being crowned with a state level title that advances to a national pageant.
Has not won a UNM Maine State title in any division; this doesn’t not include someone that has taken an appointed title such as Downeast Maine or Miss Pine Tree or held Miss Maine Preschool, Primary or Elementary.
Participants must apply through an optional with an essay of their service to CYC (200-500 words, the Crown CARES, participate in a separate interview with a separate panel of judges and be competing the year they wish to qualify.
Miss division delegates are eligible once they compete in the Miss division two time. In rare cases, a teen delegate may be considered if she meets the qualifications. If a teen is selected, she will commit to re-competing as a Miss and in rare cases, a teen when she is eligible.
In case of multiple eligible delegates, consideration will go to the delegate that is aging out, has the highest interview score, along with years of service.
Miss Dirigo will receive the same prize package and be expected to follow the same rules as the state titleholders. Gifts and donations from vendors may not be applicable.
If there is not an eligible candidate, the title will not be filled. Crossroads reserves the right to not crown a delegate each year.
AWOS delegates do not qualify. This is only for UNM delegates.
