The NAM Pageant is held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Reston Town Center in Reston, VA every year in August!
On Day 3, which was the Finale Event the event began with a Dance Performance by All Jr. Pre-Teen contestants from both Maryland and Virginia. After which the Contestants went and changed into their Formal Pageant Gowns for their final walk for the judges!
Everyone knew where they needed to be and what time they needed to be there! The ballroom, which is where the competitions took place and the finale event, had more than enough space to accommodate the contestants, their families and guests. The decor was light and simple. The NAM logo was present everywhere for the event with 2 large logos reflected on the stage. The event lighting was perfect for the occasion. Less is more and sometimes the more decor you have the more clutter you have! Outside the ballroom, parents and guests could purchase NAM products such as bags, t-shirts, jewelry, sashes and tiaras for their contestant.
After it was all said and done the NEW Jr. Pre-Teen National Miss for Maryland is Ms. Sha'Miyae Hinton-Knight and the NEW Jr. Pre-Teen National Miss for Virginia is Ms. Teagan Pendleton.
My goddaughter has participated in this pageant event for the last 5 years! This 9-year old Jr. Pre-Teen did exceptional well in her Personal Interview and during her Walk on the Stage.
She was exceptionally Gorgeous in her Silver & Red Sparkle Pageant Gown! For a little girl that has worked hard for this event, it was a proud moment for me to see her place in the "Photogenic Contest" in the pageant amongst the other contestants. This not only made her feel good on the inside, but it also helped boost her confidence in taking part in more contests at future events! I am proud of her, but not only is she photogenic, she is a model, an actress and a Advocate for Sickle Cell Disease.
