The Maine Lobster Festival is looking for 20 young women to serve as Sea Princesses and compete for the title of Maine Sea Goddess at the 2020 Maine Lobster Festival. This is a tradition that dates back to 1948 when Ruth Roberts Danzig was crowned the first Sea Goddess.

On the opening night of the festival, one Sea Princess is crowned the Sea Goddess and one is crowned the Crown Princess. The Sea Goddess will represent the Midcoast and the Maine lobster industry throughout the year at various festivals and events.

Applicants must be a high school graduate, 21 years of age or younger at the time of the coronation, and a Maine resident. Applications must be postmarked before March 31. All application materials and new pageant guidelines for 2020 can be found on the Maine Sea Goddess Coronation page of the Maine Lobster Festival website.
