Here at National American Miss, we strive to make an impact on the lives of our participants. We hope that each NAM girl can go home with a sense of pride about who she is and what she wants to be someday. This is one of the greatest things about our program. While only one girl in each age division will walk away with a crown and banner representing her home state, National American Miss allows a multitude of outstanding leaders to go home and continue to shine in their local communities, long after the state competition has concluded. Marisa Pace did just this. Marisa was the MN NAM Jr Pre Teen 1st Runner Up in 2012.
After competing in Minnesota in 2012, Marisa went home and made a huge impact in her community. Her heartfelt plan to help children staying at the Lakes Crisis and Resource Center in Detroit Lakes has not gone unnoticed. Marisa's plan to warm the hearts of these children through her fleece blanket campaign was recently featured in the Detroit Online News. Way to go Marisa!!
