NAM is an organization unlike any other! After competing in this system for 15 years, I have gained confidence, self-esteem & vital life skills that will set me up for my future. I always feel welcomed and accepted for who I am. I cannot recommend National American Miss enough!

Emily Lenser, National American Miss 2022-2023

National American Miss was absolutely amazing! The event was so well organized and we were kept up to date. The national pageant was truly an amazing experience. My daughter had such a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!

Mom of Emma, NAM South Carolina Teen 2022

I have been involved in National American Miss for eight years. I would NOT be the person I am today without it. National American Miss has shaped me into a determined, hard working, confident, driven person, and it has shown me how capable I am of things that may seem impossible.
