Elle Lyne is the Founder, CEO and Executive Director of Worldwide Pageants LLC and Worldwide United Pageants, the prestigious international pageant for women ages 13 and up. Elle Lyne (and her husband) are also the Co-founders of the Mrs. Worldwide Pageant, Mrs. USA Pageant, and USA Worldwide Pageants. They share their vision for the pageant: to honor and esteem women of excellence; who give unselfishly to their families, communities and platforms while competing for the prestigious worldwide title!
When Elle was 18, she entered a local Jr. Miss Scholarship Program where she walked away with the talent award, 2nd runner-up placement, and some scholarship money for college. She then entered college and obtained her Bachelor of Music Education degree, and later in life, a Master of Music Education degree.
Since high school until the present Elle has directed, choreographed and played various roles in a wide variety of musical theater/opera productions as well as the leading roles in community and professional summer stock theater. She has performed onstage at the Orpheum Theater, The Holland Performing Arts Center, Lincoln Community Playhouse, The Lofte Theater, The Mule Barn Theater, was featured on Nebraska ETV, and interviewed on Cox Cable’s “Omaha Images." She has also been a pageant judge over the years for several different Miss and Mrs. State Pageants.
In December of 2012, Elle and her family adopted their son from an Orphanage in China when he was 5 years old. She began to share her adoption journey to China with others as she advocated for “A Child Waits for their Forever Family, Give them the Hope of Adoption.” She and her son worked together to fundraise for “Love Without Boundaries Foundation,” which is a non-profit organization that helps orphaned and foster children in China.
Elle holds the previous titles of Mrs. Nebraska International and Mrs. Nebraska USA Universal. She has been involved in helping with several local pageants as well as singing the National Anthem for various pageants and organizations.
Although Elle has an extensive background in both music and theater, there is no talent-performance portion in the Worldwide Pageant System. Worldwide Pageants LLC and Worldwide United Pageants are a great experience for women everywhere who wish to promote their platforms, serve their communities, network with other like-minded women, fulfill personal goals, and simply have fun!
