Thanks to Janet Desmarais, State Director of the Maine International Pageant, for inviting me to be a judge at this years festivities.

It was a busy weekend with contestant interviews on Saturday and the wonderful pageant on Sunday, at the beautiful Crooker Theater in Brunswick.

I can honestly tell you, it was my pleasure to help out, but it was one of the most stressful things I have done, just knowing how much dedication and hard work all of the contestants put it in. They are all winners in my book.

All the contestants had amazing platforms and stories to share. The pageant is all about giving back. Thank you, to all the contestants, for the work you have done, and will continue to do, to make our communities better.

Congratulations to those that were crowned as this year's winners:


  • Mrs Maine International 2018, Misty Lee Coolidge, New Gloucester
  • Miss Maine International 2018, Brianna Bodman, Thomaston
  • Miss Teen Maine International, 2018 Valerianne Hinkley, Wilton
