Join the 
Sisterhood of Service
in 2025


At International & American Women of Service, we strive to empower ALL women through civic and community service. When we say this is a "Sisterhood of Service", we mean just that. Our contestants are like none other. They encourage, empower and uplift their sisters. They service each other and their greater community. Our contestants bring to life the vision of International & American Women of Service through their character, service, and friendships. As a pageant organization, we foster an environment where women feel completely and uniquely themselves. Pageant week should be about embodying the best version of you and celebrating the journey and accomplishments you have made. International & American Women of Service is the place to come together with like-minded women, find your tribe and cultivate your most genuine self. Having a little fun along the way is simply the icing on the cake!
