Hi NAM is legitimate but VERY VERY EXPENSIVE!!! Besides the dresses, outfits, gowns, required staying in first rate hotels, charges for photographs submitted for photogenic (all of which should be professionally done), the cost for state and national competitions is high.
If you or your family is talented at selling ads or know business owners who will support you by buying advertisements, those sales can help pay for the official costs.
If you win Miss Photogenic for your state you are guaranteed to go to Los Angeles but all costs for everyone except the winner of the overall State crown are responsible for all costs relating to the nationals.
Just thought you should know.
Reason of review: Pricing issue.
National American Miss Pros: Friendly people, Teaches kids life skills, Boost confidence.
National American Miss Cons: No assistance for the girls, Pricing, Handicapped friendliness for families.
