MISSOURI GIRLS: AMAZING opportunity to get involved and give back

Five years ago, Jordan Somer, a former two-time National American Miss Nebraska wanted to really make an AMAZING impact with her title. After volunteering with the Special Olympics, she was inspired to give girls with mental and physical disabilities the same opportunity to gain confidence and life skills that she had had during her NAM experience. Thus, the Miss Amazing Pageant was created and since then both Jordan and the Miss Amazing Pageant have received nation-wide recognition, even being the recipient of a Nickelodeon, TEENNICK HALO award, among others. With this award, Jordan, has been able to establish non-profit status and spread this pageant statewide! This is the first time it will be here in Missouri!

The Miss Amazing pageant will be April 13th and 14th at Lindenwood University and YOU can GET INVOLVED!!!!!!

Currently, the Miss Missouri Amazing pageant is looking for buddies and former and current pageant titleholders and participants make great buddies. As a buddy, you who would be paired with a contestant and act as her supporter and mentor throughout the day. Also, you will perform onstage with your buddy in the opening number. This is an all day commitment on Saturday April 14th from 9 in the morning until 10 at night. Attendance on April 13th is optional, as it is an optional talent showcase for contestants, but buddies are welcome to come watch.
