About Pageant

Welcome

This year, AGM celebrates FOURTEEN amazing years and we invite each and every one of you to join us! We are truly a pageant for everyone! America’s Grand Miss is a FACIAL beauty pageant.
 

This pageant is brought to you by the same directors that have produced Tropical Dream Stars USA productions for 24 years! Welcome to America’s Grand Miss National! We welcome each and every one of you! This will be an exciting 14th year, as we crown our 2020 National Grand Royalty! You may compete in beauty and your choice of optionals to qualify for the supreme titles! We are very proud to guarantee lots of cash prizes and top quality  Custom created LOGO crowns! Our crowns are breathtaking! ! Our judges will be looking for a beautiful face. Please note that anyone may compete and win at AGM, because expensive glitz attire is not what our judges are looking for. This is not a natural pageant system, styled hair and make up is absolutely allowed and should flatter the contestant based on age. Supremes are based on your total beauty score: 1-30 + your ONE Highest optional event 1-30. The optional may be: casual wear, interview, talent, natural photo, natural print model or natural composite. You do not have to compete in every optional since only the one highest is used toward Supremes. Please call should you have any questions!

Executive National Director
