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...Read more

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.
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...Read more
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...Read more
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...Read more

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.
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...Read more
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...Read more
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...Read more
