Madisson Higgins

Crowned Miss Maine Teen USA 2022 is Madisson Higgins of Bangor. She attends John Bapst Memorial High School where she is a sophomore. The 16-year-old student has many passions; she is a dancer, a competitive equestrian, and a Student Senator for the Class of 2024. Madisson has a love for animals including her two labrador retrievers Tru and Timber. She is the daughter of a career Firefighter, now Fire Chief. Through his service, Madisson has developed a passion to serve and celebrate first responders for all that they sacrifice while helping others. Madisson has aspirations of one day becoming a nurse anesthetist, so she too can help others in time of need. Madisson is also inspired by her mother who is a CPA and has encouraged Madisson to follow her dreams in anesthesiology, a predominantly male field.

At the age of 3, Madisson began dancing at Top Hat II Dance Studio in Holden, Maine. She has practiced many forms of dance including tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary, lyrical, and hip-hop. While she enjoys all dance, she loves tap dancing. Madisson has two horses, Misty who she has owned for nine years, and High Calibre “Libby” who she purchased two years ago when she outgrew her pony. She enjoys competing in Dressage and Eventing at her barn, PepperGrass Farm. Madisson is a member of the United States Pony Club, where she not only learns about horse care and management but also has given her the opportunity to mentor younger equestrians. Madisson is a member of the United States Dressage Federation and the United States Eventing Association. As a competitive equestrian, she has learned confidence and the meaning of hard work. Madisson loves to dress up but spends many days getting her hands dirty at the barn.

This summer Madisson will be a working student at PepperGrass Farm where she helps start new horses, cleans stalls, and perform other chores. She has also applied to volunteer one day a week at Northern Light, Eastern Maine Medical Center where she hopes to deliver medical equipment to operating rooms. Madisson’s favorite vacation destination is the United States Virgin Islands, where you can find her enjoying the beach, sand, and sun.

Madisson feels grateful and blessed to serve as the 2022 Miss Maine Teen USA. She is honored to have been chosen and excited to work with the Miss USA and Clemente Organizations. She looks forward to the Miss USA pageant and hopes to bring the title of Miss Teen USA back to the State of Maine.
