NAM has become a very bad company that just cares about getting money from contestants. Please, just because there is no bathing suit show, doesn't mean its a reputable company and several gowns worn were inappropriate for the age of the girl.
The 2015 rules did not give gown restrictions in any of the paperwork provided. NAM did not provide the girls with any direction other than sending them out on stage. Most girls appeared awkward, lost and confused during the pageant. I was outraged with this company and do not recommend National America miss.
If the pageant was overcrowded in CA, its most likely because they are steadily losing money elsewhere because pissed off parents are slamming them on social media.
NAM needs to be run out of business. I suggest finding a more reputable pageant.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
