Open Call

If you received an invitation to an Open Call, CONGRATS – it’s your (or your daughter’s) invitation to our open call, which is an opportunity for you to find out about your state’s National American Miss State Pageant. National American Miss is a pageant like no other. We are nothing like what you have seen on T.V. So, what sets us apart? Our goals at National American Miss are for you to share quality time with your family, make new friends, and gain valuable self-confidence.

In everything we do, you’ll see a recurring theme of “Keeping it Real.” That’s because we believe that each activity we provide is not only fun, but also builds real-world skills. We also place an emphasis on age-appropriateness in all aspects of competition; including our NO MAKEUP rule for girls younger than 13 years of age. Because let’s face it… in modern times kids are growing up way to fast! Let us help to instill what is age appropriate by example.

  • A program based on the foundational principle of fostering positive self-image by enhancing natural beauty within.
  • National American Miss is a program designed for today’s girl. We celebrate America’s greatness and the individuality of American girls.
  • It is a program centered around helping young ladies grow and expand their ideas about who they are and what they want to achieve. We want every girl to realize that she truly can take hold of her dreams and make them real!
  • National American Miss has friendly staff members who will guide you throughout your pageant experience. Each and every team member is committed to opening doors of opportunity for girls that aren’t available anywhere else.
  • Our concert-level sound and lighting is unsurpassed! You will be proud to invite your family and friends to rally around and support you on pageant weekend.
  • A program that teaches valuable skills that will give you a competitive edge to succeed in whatever fields you may choose.

This is a very common question. Anything “new” can seem intimidating and we are sensitive to this. In fact many of our Pageant Choreographers began their journey with National American Miss as a “shy” Contestant who had never been in a pageant prior to ours. They have since become great leaders and role models and we are so proud of them! Parents have commended us time and time again for inspiring their daughter to “crawl out of her shell”. You never know what you can accomplish until you try!

Esta es una pregunta muy común. Algo “nuevo” puede parecer intimidante y somos sensibles a esto. De hecho muchas de nuestras coreógrafas del certamen comenzaron su viaje con National American Miss como una concursante “tímida” que nunca había estado en un concurso antes del nuestro. Desde entonces se han convertido en grandes líderes y modelos a seguir y nos sentimos tan orgullosos de ellas! Los padres nos han elogiado repetidamente por inspirar a su hija a “salir fuera de su cáscara”. Nunca sabrás lo que puedes lograr hasta que lo intentes!
