On April 19th, Mississippi's Miss Amazing Pageant will be held at the Jackson Convention Complex.
Miss Amazing, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for women with mental and physical disabilities. Miss Amazing's mission is to help raise the self-confidence and build self-esteem in girls and women with disabilities. Participants build interview skills and public speaking skills through the pageant's events. The only fee to participate is 5 cans of food that will be donated by the participants to a local food bank so that the girls can give back to their community. The Miss Amazing pageant is not a "beauty pageant". Miss Amazing is focused on the girls showing their abilities and growth as a person, not what they are wearing. Miss Amazing is growing each year and had it's very first national pageant in Omaha, Nebraska this past summer where girls from across the country came to showcase their abilities.
If you know an outstanding girl who would like to participate in this year's pageant, she can register at http://missamazingpageant.com/applications/ We are looking forward to a great pageant and celebrating these inspiring young women.
