The National American Miss screening panel has completed their review of your pageant application and you have been selected as a State Finalist! Because your application stood out to the screening panel, you now have the prestigious opportunity to participate in the most exciting and exclusive pageant in the world. 
Your official welcome packet is on the way in the mail and contains:

  • Your State Finalist Ribbon 

  • A Press Release to announce you are an official State Finalist

  • Exciting Information about the pageant

  • Tips for obtaining Sponsors 

Each State Finalist has a sponsor fee - which is an entry fee that can be paid by you, or by your family, friends or local businesses. The sponsor fee is $550 and can be broken up into payments. Your first step is to choose from these three options to get started with a payment of either $20, $275, or $475:

What about sponsors?

  • Anyone can be a sponsor - you can sponsor yourself - or family, friends and local businesses can be your sponsors.

  • Sponsor payments are tax-deductible for businesses as an advertising expense because your sponsors will be listed in our program book. 

  • If you pay your own sponsor fee yourself now, you can always continue to seek sponsors and they can provide those payments to you to reimburse you or you can use those sponsor payments to pay for other expenses (optional contest entry fees, hotel, pageant outfits, etc.)

  • Sponsors can use a credit card to submit sponsor payments (see link below) or they can give you a check made payable to NAM which you will mail to the pageant office (be sure to put your name in the memo line of the check).
