Sam.. Waste of Money and they definitely are not all non profit.
They send out letters for a fake invite to an open call ( claiming someone submitted their names all Lies they get them online by doing a little search in areas they want kids from from places like on Fb or Instagram etc) which any kid can go to.. accidentally let a parent see scores pretending they didn't to get kids Who's families can spend thousands to buy their way to get into top 10 same the more you spend the more attention your may get if lucky kid most of the kid are pageant pros those get the attention.. all like little clones , a girl who real and natural lie they supposedly want get ignored.. for the highly coached kids who's family spend the most..
.. basically they get girls hopes up with their rah rah pep rally type pre programming for nothing but a participation trophy .. Can you say rip off no wonder this pageant "Company" is banned in a lot of cities and states.. Sad thing is many od these kids belive they have a chance next year so parents pay these *** artist again & again ..
and for what really nobody hires kids for any type acting modeling with a pageant resume.. and it will never have value getting into a good college or living in the real world .. let face it not many of the less affluent kids will ever get to Miss USA or Miss america.. Mother stip putting your kid through thing you could never do as a child and making them think its a good thing..
Check out NAM all the law suits and complaints pending.. they can afford big type high priced law firms fr.. because they are making millions scamming people like you.. And to the Aunt o says its awesome bet you don't pay for it..
blinders are so easy to wear.. better to say No to a kid once then to keep allowing them to go through this *** year after year.. when they could be doing other things that will get them somewhere in life.. besides being more polite..
People spend money or do gofundme for this stuff who don't have any.. some can't even feed the kids they have but they will trow their money down a rat w hold like NAM.. because little whatever their names are want it.. no you do, that why they do thier are kids for god sake..
let them be kids.. they will have enogh disappointment in life and let downs why let them get any from here..
year after year.. do you home work
