As you know, NAM has been evaluating the COVID-19 situation very closely in Columbia, MO. Based on the state and local guidelines set in the area, it is not possible for NAM to host a state event of our size safely at this time.
It is with the deepest of regrets that we will have to postpone the 2020 NAM State Pageant until 2021 (DATE & LOCATION TBD).
Fortunately, we do have our COVID-19 Action Plan in place so that our fully paid Kansas/Missouri State Finalists can choose one of the following options:
1) You can now compete through our Appointed State Queen program to become Miss Missouri/Miss Kansas for your age division and advance to Nationals in Orlando, FL this Thanksgiving, representing your state & having the opportunity to compete for the National American Miss title for your age group. To apply for the Appointed State Title at namiss.com/appointed. Everything must be submitted no later than July 31st.
2) You can transfer all funds paid to the state pageant to compete at the 2020 All-American Miss National Pageant in Orlando, FL over Thanksgiving PLUS a free credit of an additional $350 for their 2020 national account.
3) You can transfer all funds to the 2021 State Pageant. Unless you choose one of the above options, we will assume you are choosing this option & we will be in communication with you be early 2021.
If you are not already paid in full for the NAM Kansas/Missouri Pageant, you have until 11:59pm EST on Friday, July 17th (TODAY) to pay the rest of their sponsorship fees online to qualify for the first two options.
And, lastly - we want to honor and recognize our AMAZING 2019 State Royalty who will miss out on their farewell weekend. In the upcoming weeks, be on the lookout on social media, as we highlight their year & accomplishments.
We look forward to seeing everyone either this Thanksgiving in Orlando or at your 2021 State Pageant.
