We have been working with the NAM pageant for 6 years and we are nobody to anyone. I pay very little for my daughters dresses and we share room expenses with another friend that we met through NAM. My two daughters get what they put into it. We do not do sponsor...

I competed in NAM for years. I earned runner up titles year after year. No matter how much I practiced or changed up what I did I always got a runner up spot. The last year I competed I realized it was rigged and was never going to win. I noticed this for a few...

My daughter went to the open call in April and participated in her first state pageant in June. While the fees do add up quite quickly when you start adding extras, I do not agree with the majority who is stating that the top spenders are the chosen winners. The girst...

National American Miss - Same girls win over and over!

This pageant is very nice BUT the same girls always win. If you want a fair level competition this pageant isn't for you. If you have a pageant coach this pageant is for you.

My two girls competed in different age divisions. One of them won a couple of optionals and was offered an opportunity to go to Nationals if I pay the entry fee while the other who didn't win was not. People over the phone sound unprofessional. I felt disconnected from the staff. The competition ran long and late for my girls. It felt inefficient use of time.

National American Miss - WASTE OF MONEY

This is the second year my daughter has done this pageant. It's VERY obvious who the top 5 will be and can actually say the names with the emcee at the same time, yes it's that obvious. For ANYONE who gets the letter for your daughter, ITS TRASH!!! Those who spend the most money on top of all the money for everything else : hotel, food, travel expenses, dresses, etc. are the ones who win.

My child competed in the pre-teen category for a first and last time. This is a money-making business I do not think they do anything to gain confidence because the smart, pretty and confident kid does not win. Wins the one who has been for years in this competition...

Well, this is my thought about NAM: Although, my 13 year old daughter had a fun chance to participate in the pageant, I felt that NAM has to have an explicit list of extra expenses ( Like the hot pink T-shirt and socks they made you pay at orientation for 30 more...

My daughter has a disability that isn't easily seen. She had a stroke, which effects gross motor skills, fine motor skills, speech, vision, etc.. so I think that they'll keep passing her by no matter how well she does because, one she can't read two she can't speak...

Yes my daughter didn't win. I will be first to admit she didn't win and didn't deserve to win some girls were better prepared . After watching the award ceremony, I have to say do not enter this pageant. Yes my daughter didn't deserve to win, yet was funny that the...

National American Miss - Girls in age categories are not same age
I recently just competed in the 2017 JR.Teen pageant at National American Miss. The age limit was 15 but 16 year old girls won. It is very frustrating to see how much lying the girls do. For example a girl next to me was 16 but wrote 15 on her card. Very upset and sad...

NAM is a SCAM

Not surprised, contestants lie about where they live and NAM let them compete in the wrong state. NAM has become a big money SCAM!

My daughter won first runner up two years in a row. Last year we were fine with it because it was our first, but this year not so much. The girl who won did a terrible introduction but still won. It would've been fine if the 2nd runner up won because she did just as...

I see there are a lot of complaints on here saying it is the girls that spend the most that win. That is NOT true in my experience. My daughter had never participated in a pageant let alone have modeling or acting experience and we never met any staff other than at the...
