The National American Miss Pageants are unlike any other. All activities and competitions are kept age appropriate. Girls under the page of 12 are not allowed to wear make-up and there is no swimsuit competition. The Pageant program is based on inner-beauty, as well as poise and presentation, and offers an “All-American spirit of fun for family and friends.” Emphasis is put on the importance of developing self-confidence, learning good sportsmanship, as well as setting and achieving personal goals. The pageant recognizes the accomplishment of each girl while encouraging her to set goals for her future.
