Champaign, ILL – Summer Nagele and Jess Harnish discuss National Miss Amazing 2017.
The focus of the Miss Amazing events is to help girls develop self-confidence, and this is done through the *skills* of pageantry.
Throughout the day the contestants interact with many people. They are paired up one-to-one with a buddy who does various activities with them and supports them and helps them build confidence throughout the day.
Participants get their hair and makeup done. They also go through an interview with judges. During the main event, they present themselves on-stage to the audience, in any attire that makes them feel beautiful.
All participants become princesses and are given a crown. Many comment that they love that it made them feel beautiful. Six representatives (or Queens), one from each age group, are selected to represent Illinois at the annual National event.
The national event is April 6 & 7th, 2018 at Naperville Yellowbox in Rosemont, IL.
