Community service is an important aspect in many pageant systems. Titleholders are expected to stand up and speak up for those who cannot do so for themselves and represent their communities and platforms with integrity and passion.
Yet, the commitment to the service isn’t the sole basis of winning the title.
Now, imagine getting to compete in a pageant where your community service is the star focus in getting you the crown. (Read: How to Promote Your Platform Through Community Service)
That is just what USA Ambassador’s National SLICC Ambassador title aims to do.
What is it?
SLICC stands for “Success through Leadership, Integrity, Character and Confidence.”
The winner will win a national crown, rhinestone sash, and the opportunity to participate in a mission trip.
Why does this title exist?
“The USA Ambassador Pageant is a charity driven organization that promotes Success through Leadership, Integrity, Character and Confidence in today’s young women,” according to USA Ambassador.
Meaning, this title aims to promote the mission even more than other national titles. This is a great option for girls who love the community service aspect of pageantry.

While many pageants, and all titles in the USA Ambassador system, aim to recognize achievement in serving your community, the SLICC title with USA Ambassador is based entirely on your community service work.
Some people were born with talent to entertain their communities, some were born to lead and others were born to serve, and it is wonderful that a title has been created with the sole purpose to recognize and celebrate those with a servant’s heart.
