We regret that you had a bad experience with USA NATIONAL MISS. That is an entirely different pageant system from National American Miss. To be clear, there is no relation between the two pageant systems at all. We see in an internet search that Lara Kelsey is the director for a pageant system named USA NATIONAL MISS. To be clear, Lara Iacometti, aka Lara Kelsey, not a director nor staff for NAM in any way. No association at all. On the USA...

The Leader in Colorado and Texas is a Colorado resident, she also has a business under her married name of Iacometti, selling pageant sashes and crowns. You can find this information on the Colorado Secretary of State's web site under business search under Lara Iacometti. Her 2 daughters won (surprise), and one daughter now works for the organization as does a sister in another state. Her name (legal) is Lara Kelsey. This is a for-profit...

If you read it, most of the negative reviews about costs and prizes were spot on.<...

I was a CoverGirl for a state (many years ago) I won't reveal for personal reasons, yet I have some tough words. There were a pair of sisters in my age division who would always win. Year after year. We knew one would win because the older had moved up in age division. They've now moved into the Miss America pageant arena, but the rest of the girls I have talked to felt as if there was some sort of bribery. A constant win from the same family...

Anonymous What are you thinking? Maybe hoping these pageants would be fair when they are run by people like Trump. Not going to happen.

It is so weird to me that the winners look and act like robots! Why do they want to reward girls for being plastic?!? Not sure how to win this pageant but it's definitely not with real substance and genuine character!!

This comany fills parents head with lies. When it all comes down to it. The winner for nationals is all about who put up more money. Brea maples is a crook along with her mom. Disrepectful. Parents please dont get looped in . my daughter won the state title but thats just a gimmick to get enough girls there to compete at nationals. If you take a look at all the national queens parents thry are wealthy beyond wealthy. They put out thousands of...

National American Miss is a pageant I have been doing for several years and I'm in love!!!!! The pageant is judged fairly and the girls are really nice. I've made some of my best friends there and I've seen confidence levels go through the roof with some girls, and trust me, I mean that as a good thing! National American Miss is a pageant I would never quite doing. I will never stop until I obtain that National title. National American Miss is a...

I'll review this because I admit I fell for it. My daughter has competed for 3 years. I spent a lot of money with optional contests and advertising. She won cover girl because we sold ads she did well in optional contests year one then declined. She never placed in the main event until this year when she made top 10. However her scores were worse than any other year?!yet we stepped it up bought dresses like other contestants who won stepped up...

Quardian Thank you for sharing your story. As I suspected, NAM contestants spend about $5,000, per year, to compete in its system. You actually got out cheap, at $15,000 for three year...

My daughter doesn't wear make-up. So we set realistic expectations. She submitted her offical school transcript. My daughter is a honor student and has a 5.0 GPA. She had recommendations and letters from teachers. She received NOTHING. Not even 1st runner up. When I tried to ask one of the judges what the Academic reward was based on she told me that she didn't judge that event and that I would have to call the office. Go figure. I'll be calling...

I have competed in NAM twice: When I was 16 and again when I was 19. Neither time ended well for me, especially the 2nd time. The first time was my first pageant ever so I didn't know what to expect nor did I realize I would be competing against 150 some girls. The 2nd time I felt so much more confident considering I knew what to expect and had long prepared myself for it. I didnt make top 15 either time, and it was disappointing that I didn't...

Anonymous You did not win because you did not buy extras.

My 7 year old daughter participated in the 2016 California pageant among the Princess age division. I found this pageant to be misleading, inconsistent, disingenuous, and disorganized. I am aware that this was a beauty competition (and a costly one too), but I still feel that NAM clearly has some corrections to make in regards to both morals and management. I'll start by noting that their claim of "bottom line pricing" is false, and I'm not...
