The National United States Pageant prides itself with a focus on community service and volunteering through our motto Crowns Making An Impact™. Each contestant is required to submit a minimum of 6 community service projects/activities that benefit a local, area, or state/national non-profit organization to receive the full 10% towards your overall score. Community service will be submitted via a submission form, along with photos actively showing your service work – collecting items, volunteering, making a donation (must be donating items), etc.
