The National American Miss Pageants are unlike any other.All activities and competitions are kept age appropriate.Girls under the age of 12 are not allowed to wear makeup, and there is no swimsuit competition.

The Pageant program is based on inner-beauty, as well as poise and presentation, and offers an "All-American spirit of fun for family and friends." Emphasis is put on the importance of developing self confidence, learning good sportsmanship, as well setting and achieving personal goals. The Pageant recognizes the accomplishments of each girl while encouraging her to set goals for her future.
