Greetings NAM State Finalist:

 

Your Pageant is quickly approaching & we look forward to seeing you Sparkle on Stage! Included below are important items for you to review prior to arriving at your State Pageant, so that you arrive fully prepared!

1. Practicing Safety While Growing Confidence :

Earlier this year, NAM issued a summary of how we plan to host our Pageants this year, while maintaining high standards of safety & social distancing in response to COVID-19. This was just our first step. Included, you will now find the details & protocols we will be implementing specifically for your State event. Please carefully review this, as we want you to be informed & prepared. We are excited to see you & continue our mission of helping young women grow confidence...while staying safe

3. Hotel Map:

To better acquaint you with the host pageant hotel, we have provided a map of the meeting space area we will be using for the Pageant events.

4. Your Pageant Statement:

This statement reflects your order, payments already made to us, as well as the balance that is due. This balance will need to be paid in full at Pageant Check-In with cash, credit, debit or money order. NO CHECKS. You will see in your order: your Sponsor Fee, Production Number Outfit, Optional Contests, & any other miscellaneous items that you have ordered. Remember, if you choose NOT to participate in an Optional Contest, you may notify us at Check-In and we will remove it from your order. Also, at Pageant Check-In, you will be responsible for payment for any additional Final Show Tickets, Roses or Contestant Fan Club Button if you have not done so already. If you find an error in your statement, please E-MAIL stateHQ@namiss.com prior to your State Pageant.

5. Personal Letter from State Director:

With over 25 years in this industry, I want to share some helpful advice for Pageant Weekend.

6. Your Pageant Paperwork:

These forms should be completed & printed out prior to Pageant Check-In. You will turn these in at Pageant Check-In. If you do not have access to a printer, I would plan to arrive at the host pageant hotel early to have plenty of time to print these out in the business center. You can also always try places like Kinkos, UPS and Fedex Print Service office, family, friends, or workplace printers.

7. Pageant Check-In Checklist:

This will help you arrive at your first event, Pageant Check-In, prepared!

8. Pop Up Shop:

At this year's State Pageant, our Premier Gown Sponsor, Tulle + Dye will be on site hosting a LIVE POP UP SHOP! Our new Miss Kansas & Miss Missouri's will be dressed by Tulle + Dye for the National Formal Wear Competition! Be sure to stop by & shop for pageant/formal attire & accessories!
