The Miss American Coed (MAC) Pageant was founded in 1983 to encourage personal development and natural beauty. In keeping with that legacy American Coed still focuses on a natural pageant experience to help girls develop real life skills.
In fact, one of our most important rules at American Coed is that make up is not allowed on any contestants under the age of 13 and all outfits and presentations must be age appropriate.
MAC Northeast is a regional preliminary pageant with six age divisions: Princess (3-6), Sweetheart (7-9), Preteen (10-12), Junior Teen (13-15), Teen (16-18), and Coed (19-22)
Our pageant offers opportunities to build skills in an array of areas such as interview skills during our panel interview, public speaking ability in our personal introduction category, and poise in our eveningwear competition.
Contestants may choose to customize their experience by entering our Optional Competitions such as Speech, Actress, Modeling, Photogenic, and Talent.
Each year we will select regional winners in each age division to represent the titles of Miss New England, Miss Northern States, and Miss Atlantic States. These lucky young ladies will move on to compete at the
National Miss American Coed Pageant held in Orlando, Florida during the week of Thanksgiving!
