The U.S.A. Ambassador Pageant is a charity driven organization that promotes success through leadership, integrity, character, and confidence in today’s young women. Founded in the fall of 2010, by the mother-daughter team of Barbara & Kristin Thurston, the Pageant was established to promote each contestant’s individual strength and to encourage its queens, contestants, and families to serve as ambassadors in their communities. To date, the U.S.A. Ambassador Pageant has donated to over 65 different charity organizations across the country and continues to support the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, which serves as their National Charity Beneficiary.
