My daughter has been in NAM for few years and she loves it!!
NAM is a program designed for today's girl. This pageant helps girls grow and expand ideas about who they are and what they would like to achieve. I like "no makeup rule" for under 12 years old.
Yes, of course there is sponsor fee like any other pageants, but you don't have to sell advertising pages to enter this pageant. (the other pageants require to sell their program book ad pages.)
NAM sponsor fee pays for the cost of producing the pageant, awards, trophies, acholarships...
People who saying negative about NAM, because their daughter didnt win the state pageant. I understand those parents are mad and dissapointed, but your daughter should learned something from NAM pageant experiences...my daughter did. She gained poise, self-confidence, and valuable communication skills, and she made amazing friends at the pageant weekend.
Reason of review: Good quality.
