At your State Pageant, you will be competing for your share of more than $20,000 in prizes, awards, and exciting opportunities! And our state queens go on to compete at Internationals where more than $500,000 in cash and prizes are awarded! 


We’re giving out trophies, plaques and crystal medallions on pageant weekend as well as the incredible opportunity to represent your state and compete at Internationals in Orlando, Florida!


It's not a program in which only one winner takes all. In fact, each and every girl is a winner at National American Miss. If you qualify to be in the pageant, you’ll become a State Finalist, and every State Finalist will be presented onstage and will also receive a beautiful Official State Finalist award during pageant weekend.


Every National American Miss state winner in each age division receives:

* National American Miss, Inc. (and NAM State Directors) are not responsible for any sponsored prizes or awards that are not fulfilled by sponsors.



The National American Miss State title opens doors during your year of service. As the State Pageant winner, you will represent your state for the following year and will return to next year’s pageant, with your hotel room provided for the night of the final show to crown your successor. Take a day to visit your state’s Governor, make an appearance with your local sports teams, be an honored speaker at the state fair, and participate in parades; these are just some of the opportunities you could have with National American Miss!


The four runners-up to the Queen’s title will each receive a custom-designed award and an invitation to the National Pageant where they will compete in a separate competition for the National All-American Miss Title. Take competition to the next level with top finishers from all across the country. And when you attend Nationals, you are eligible to win a brand new CAR!



The State Cover Girl will receive a crown, banner, trophy, roses and the opportunity to compete in the National Pageant in Orlando! She will also return to next year’s pageant, with her family’s hotel room provided for one night, to crown her successor. The Cover Girl program is a contest where you have the opportunity to sell Spotlight Pages for your state’s beautiful pageant yearbook.
