The Miss competition features three of last year's runners-up: first runner-up Alfine Nathalie, second runner-up Brooke Harris and fourth runner-up Katherine Ambrose. Marisa Butler, first runner-up in Teen in 2012, will be competing in Miss Maine USA for the second time after finishing as a non-finalist in 2013 (only nine contestants competed that year so there was only a top five). Four of last year's five semi-finalists are also back: Lindsay Abrams, Lindsay Bean, Olivia Jones and Janay Wright. Janay was also last year's Congeniality winner. Jasmin White is competing for the first time since she made the semi-finals in Teen ten years ago.
As with last year there are very few returning contestants in the Teen competition. The only returning semi-finalist is Jessica Stewart, top ten last year. 2015 non-finalist Samantha Clark and 2014 non-finalist and Congeniality winner Tia Fleischman are the only other contestants with experience. Haylee Dahlborg is the sister of Miss Maine USA 2014 Samantha Dahlborg.
