One of the COOLEST things about being a NAM girl is the annual Miss America trip that all NAM girls are invited on. And - it is always an exciting event as girls from across the country gather to cheer on their home team at the SUPERBOWL of pageantry!
This year was NO different. Everywhere you looked - NAM girls were in sight and making headlines.
Check out some of these awesome candids!
MISS AMERICA 2009, KATIE STAM trades in one bling for another. The evening before Katie bid farewell to the Miss America title, Katie was purposed to and Miss California Preteen, Taylor Longbrake, was front and center to express her well wishes. This picture was taken RIGHT after Katie said YES!
National American Miss Preten, Erika Porras swings by the Pageantry Magazine booth to lend a hand and takes time out to pose with EDITOR IN CHIEF, Carl Dunn
Miss Illinios Jr. Preteen takes her seat before the telecast on the front row. She was even brought up on stage just minutes before the live telecast!
Inspired by the tigers at the Mirage maybe? NAM girls goofing around!
Miss Illinios Jr. Preteen is one of the FIRST to pose with & meet the NEW MISS AMERICA!
