The Clemente Organization

Producers of the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA state preliminaries in Maine and Massachusetts.

About Us

Laurie Clemente and her husband Anthony are the founders of the Clemente Organization. Since 1997 they have produced state pageants for Miss USA and Miss Teen USA for the Miss Universe Organization. They currently run the state pageants in Maine and Massachusetts, and have previously run the pageants for New Hampshire, Connecticut and Vermont. In 1998 and 2003 the titleholder from Maine won the nationally televised Miss USA pageant and their delegates have placed in the Top 15, Top 10 and Top 5 at both Miss USA and Miss Teen USA.

The Clemente Organization ensures that the pageant experience is meaningful and valuable for all contestants regardless of the outcome. The staff is committed to empowering young women and helping them understand the importance of being their best selves. During the competition, The Clemente Organization stresses the importance of good sportsmanship, a strong sense of character, and building friendships, and provides a forum for young woman to reach their goals in a positive environment.

Laurie and Anthony are proud of the show production and supportive staff.  The emphasis on the young women and providing a rewarding experience for all participants is evident in the messages and letters received from contestants whose time at the pageant has left an indelible mark on their lives.

We happily encourage you to contact the Clemente Organization with any and all questions you may have about participating in the state pageants.

The Clemente Organization holds the license for the Maine and Massachusetts events for The Miss Universe Organization (MUO). The MUO uses its global grassroots reach to empower women to be self-confident and strive to be their personal best.  MUO believes that every woman should be “Confidently Beautiful.” The MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA®, and MISS TEEN USA® pageants provide an international platform through dedicated partnerships with charities, sponsors, and brands around the world. During their reign, the titleholders are given the tools to personally and professionally enrich others by providing humanitarian efforts to affect positive change, all while developing their personal career goals.
