WHERE TALENTS AND AMBITIONS OF ALL PEOPLE ARE CELEBRATED AND VALUED Illinois Miss Amazing is a state chapter of Miss Amazing Inc., a national nonprofit whose mission is to celebrate the abilities of girls and women with disabilities and help them develop self-confidence in a supportive environment. This 100% volunteer run organization holds events in 30 states.
The annual event allows participants to showcase talents, develop friendships, improve communication skills, and demonstrate their amazing abilities on-stage. Every participant is crowned a princess, and one participant from each of the six age groups is selected as a representative to use Illinois Miss Amazing as a platform throughout the year to raise awareness for girls and women with disabilities. The cost to participate is 5 canned goods. Following the event, the representatives donate the food to a local food pantry.
Last year, there were over 45 participants and in excess of 100 volunteers. Illinois Miss Amazing is passionate about continuing to grow and making an exponentially larger impact on the community, coming alongside participants and assisting them in reaching the next level of their potential. Miss Amazing believes the world is a better place when the talents and ambitions of all people are celebrated and valued.
They would love for you to come support these amazing participants by attending the talent show on Friday April 6 and/or the final show on Saturday April 7 at the Naperville Yellow Box. More information is available at www.il.missamazing.org. You will be inspired and moved!
