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...

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.

National American Miss - Could have been better

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.

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...

Another story of how the girls with the most expensive gowns and from a life of advantage prosper. It really isn't about the girl....its about the money. A gorgeous 8x10 photo, taken by a family member and not photo shopped is NEVER going to win against the girl that...

Couldn't disagree more- NAM has taught my daughter valuable skills. Since participating she has become increasingly more active in our community and a fantastic public speaker. We receive comments on a regular basis about her speaking. They tell you every required fee...

After scores are tabulated and the judges know who their top 5 are (4th runner up, 3rd runner up, 2nd runner up, 1st runner up & Queen) they allow the judges to reorder the top finalist, so if a girl earned top scores she may not be Queen, could walk out with nothing...

@NAM MOM what is misguided? Multiple tie for same scores? That doesn't seem likely. What is your source for this information? Do you work for NAM?
