1st Time NAM Participant Daughter JR PRE TEEN MISS .We set very realistic goals told our daughter we know you should be a semi finalist have modeling expierence Try Your Best all you can do STOP worrying about other girls dresses being better than yours. "Who cares if they have MORE Time & Money to invest in OPTIONAL CONTESTS" don't worry judges cannot make decision on that.
I am very disappointed because we cannot ALL afford expensive ball gown pageant dresses Rules FORMAL DRESS ANY STYLE COLOR LENGTH, but came down to semi finalist nearly ALL 90 % wore Pageant Dresses HOW RIDICULOUS Apparently Optional Contests ARE HIGHLY FAVORED BY JUDGES COUNTLESS RECOGNITION TO SAME GIRLS BECOME FINALIST OBVIOUS JUDGE GETS TO KNOW THAT GIRL MORE ONE ON ONE!!
PLEASE DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON RESUME...A PEER CONTESTANT HAS WON IN PAST TOLD MY DAUGHTER OK TO LIE IF HAVE TO IMPRESS JUDGES!! WHAT I HAVE LEARNED ALL SETUP JUDGES KNOW AGE LOOK THEY ARE GRAVITATED TOWARDS VERY BIASED
Reviewer is in unhappy mood. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss "does not warrant rules" of national american miss beauty pageant and associated monetary loss in the amount of $360. National American Miss needs to issue a partial refund according to poster's claims.
