National American Miss is one of the only pageant systems in the country that holds training sessions and workshops for each new and first time participant. Once selected as a State Finalist, girls are invited to attend these super fun sessions where they work one-on-one with modeling and pageant professionals. Girls and their families are guided through the different areas of competition, they are given tips and advice, and even get up and try it themselves - all while being critiqued by our expert instructors...and have an opportunity to start making new friends, develop life skills, and gain confidence.
While our Team has been touring the country meeting our the 2011 state finalists and showing them how to sparkle and shine, pageant weekend - we love getting to know all you girls and your families!
