Arkansas Miss Amazing is a point of light with statewide impact.

Our Story

Our State Director, Raygan Sylvester, began her involvement with the Miss Amazing Organization when she served as a judge for the Arkansas event in 2017. She was inspired by the stories of the participants and their amazing abilities that they were able to showcase.

Raygan is very familiar with self-advocacy programs, having been involved with the Miss America Organization and other confidence-building associations for more than eight years. She is excited to see the impact that Miss Amazing will have in the lives of the young women who participate, as she knows it is truly life-changing.

We encourage you to join us for this year’s Arkansas Miss Amazing event! Our goal is to celebrate each and every participant who walks across the stage, and make sure that they leave feeling empowered, confident, and truly AMAZING!
