I will continue to educate all about the importance of early detection with mammograms because it saved my life twice. Ladies, get your mammogram it could save your life, too!”

The US Continental Pageant was developed to recognize the modern woman of the 21st century.

As Oprah Winfrey once said “I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that is as unique as a fingerprint, and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you”

The US Continental Program with its authentic purpose not only gives women a chance to promote their passion for service, but it is the key ingredient that elevates them into an elite class of strong, successful and intelligent women. The US Continental State and National Pageants gives families, friends and their community an opportunity to celebrate the success and accomplishment of these outstanding women.

The US Continental Pageant system showcases all women 18+ years old and features three categories of competition, including interview, evening gown and fitness wear. For more information, visit
