Becoming an Actress

Many of your favorite stars on television and in film got their start at National American Miss! Our national actress winner will embark on the exciting, seven-day  Passport to Discovery cruise where she will audition for top talent agencies from across the globe.

Making a Difference

National American Miss titleholders are committed to making a difference in their communities and devote countless hours to volunteering for meaningful causes. NAM believes in the importance of serving and 10% of each state finalists score comes from a community service project. It's a Crown with a Cause.

Being a Recording Artist

The optional talent competition gives you an opportunity to shine! And if your talent is in music, you have the chance to advance to the National Music Artist of the Year competition where the winner receives a trip to Los Angeles and a recording session at a Hollywood studio.

Breaking into Modeling
Growing in Confidence
A Moment You'll Never Forget

From NAM's exciting Top Model Search photo shoot and Most Promising Model competitions to the Casual Wear Modeling & Photogenic competitions,  contestants love to gain experience in front of the camera and on the stage in fashion-show style productions. 

By participating in National American Miss, you'll develop poise, self-confidence, resilience and valuable communication skills. You'll feel good about yourself and gain the competitive edge to succeed in school and whatever career you may choose to pursue.
