Positive Pageantry



Who we are

The Positive Pageantry Movement is a program of Crossroads, a 501c3 youth organization. The initiative is led and managed by the USA National Miss Scholarship Organization LLC, but it is for ALL pageant systems, contestants, directors, sponsors and industry professionals to show their solidarity in ensuring the pageant world is a kind and respectful place for all young women to thrive, grow and discover their full potential. Scholarship winners are selected by an advisory board.


What’s the Goal

We believe that the time has come to end the negative stereotypes plaguing the industry. We believe that the time has come to end the divisions that exist along system lines. We believe the time has come to bring awareness to the positive benefits of being involved in pageantry. This movement is for everyone in pageantry. We aim to bring unity to the pageant community, bridge the divide between pageant systems, create a stronger sisterhood across pageant lines, support all titleholders, award scholarships, and form a more kind and respectful environment within the industry. We aim to award titleholders for being a positive example by providing scholarships. We are excited to continue promoting good will toward all our pageant sisters and encourage everyone to join the movement!

The Positive Pageantry Pledge

I pledge to engage in a positive and respectful way with everyone I interact with.

I believe in unity in the pageant community, and reject the notion of divisions among system lines. I believe
that the pageant community as a whole is one united sisterhood with one dream: building up women and
empowering them to fulfill their goals.

I will not bully, harass, demean, belittle, or degrade anyone for any reason. I will stand up for those who are
being bullied and belittled. I will be the difference.

I believe that conflict resolution consists of open communication conducted in private with the parties involved.
I don’t believe in social media rants, or online drama.

I will use my title/position to benefit others, serving and volunteering to make my community a better place.

I will be a role model, paving a better future for tomorrow’s leaders, by being a leader today and every day.

I will work to bring about unity in the pageant community, by being inclusive, being kind, and supporting the
accomplishments of all young women despite what crown they wear.


We, the undersigned, involved with various Pageant systems across the globe, believe in Positive Pageantry.
We have taken the pledge and stand strong with the Positive Pageantry Movement!
