Hello participant & family!

I am so excited that you have chosen to participate this year! My name is Jess, and I have the privilege of being the Illinois Director. I volunteered in 2014 as a buddy & fell in love with Miss Amazing, and have been Director for Illinois ever since. We have an amazing staff that has been working tirelessly in preparation for this event. Miss Amazing is a 100% volunteer organization, and we all do this because we love our participants! It is going to be an incredible experience for everyone! Just a reminder of the event information:

Naperville Yellow Box
1635 Emerson Lane
Naperville, IL 60540

  • April 5- Talent Showcase (optional)

  • April 6- Final Show

  • Entry fee: 5 cans of food which will be donated to a local food pantry

There is a lot of useful information contained in the info portal and the participant guide located at the top left of this page! The annual event public page has general information on ticket sales, parking, hotels, etc.

Thank you so much for your interest and support. We look forward to seeing you in April!

All my best,

Jess Harnish
Illinois State Director
