The Gala

Once a year, Miss Amazing coordinates a breathtaking celebration of girl power and diversity. This year's theme is In Full Bloom. Every living thing has the ability to fully bloom, but one can only blossom if given the nourishment and opportunity to do so. At this year's National Miss Amazing Gala, we will celebrate girls and women with disabilities that have seized every opportunity to grow and are living life in full bloom. 

The Showcases

Miss Amazing Inc. presents an awe-inspiring celebration of the abilities and strengths that lie within all people, regardless of disability or gender. These multi-media productions feature  a variety show of performances, digital entertainment, and presentations from the Miss Amazing Queens —all to celebrate the value that girls and women with disabilities offer our world.
