Mrs. Mahwah Becomes The New Mrs. New Jersey

Posted: Updated:
Mahwah, New Jersey (My9NJ) - On Saturday night, married women from across the state of New Jersey competed for the title of Mrs. New Jersey United States and Garden State native Paige Lippe, formerly Mrs. Mahwah Township, won the pageant! Lippe started the Dr. Michael S. Lippe Memorial Project, in honor of her father, which provides scholarships for those who want to work as EMT’s and paramedics.

“I have to tell everybody this was my first experience ever doing the pageant circuit. I was very unfamiliar with the Mrs. Pageant even existing, but I will tell you that I had a fabulous time. The women that I met were truly amazing. Every single one of them had amazing platforms, and every single one of them is so extremely educated and had so much passion for what they were doing,” Lippe said of her involvement with the pageant.

The women involved in the pageant were very busy women, most had husbands, kids, and careers. When asked why women compete in the pageant, Lippe responded, “I can’t speak for any of the women, but I think that a lot of women came to the table with different agendas. I did it because I had the opportunity to share my platform and talk about the Dr. Michael S. Lippe Memorial Project.”

For Lippe this competition wasn’t about being in a pageant, it was about giving her a platform to share what she believes in.

“It is way more than just the bathing suit, and the makeup. Of course there is a lot of preparation. This is a huge opportunity for me. This memorial project just started and I’ve been given a gigantic gift, to be able to talk about this for an entire year, to have an audience who will listen to me, to talk about my father and his legacy, and raise money for, right now, a very small scholarship fund,” Lippe said.

Lippe is now getting ready to head to Vegas where she will compete for the title of Mrs. United States.
