2009 National American Miss Princess Kelsey Artman Farewell

Dear Contestants & Families,

Wow!  It is hard to believe that it has been one year since I was crowned your National

American Miss Georgia Princess! I had such a great time at last year’s pageant and

made many new friends. I had the opportunity to travel to other NAM pageants as a

visiting queen and learned to smile and wave very quickly!

Before I knew it, it was time to go to California for Nationals! I met all of my sister

queens and had an amazing time. I toured Hollywood and the Walk of Fame, went

shopping in LA and visited the Santa Monica Pier, but I can’t forget the highlight of the

 trip – Disneyland! My family and I had such a great time! I made friends with girls from

all over the country and it was the experience of a lifetime!

Being a NAM queen also gave me the opportunity to serve in my community at many events including Relay for Life, March for Babies, benefit pageants and even a fashion show! This year has been amazing and although I am sad that it is coming to an end, I am excited to crown your new Princess!

I have many people I would like to thank for making this year so special. To my sister queens, thank you for always looking out for me and supporting me as your little sister. To Mr. Matt, the best director a girl could have!  To Miss Roxanne and Kaleigh for encouraging me to do my first pageant which helped to prepare me for NAM!  To Miss Sharon, for all of the love and support you gave me this year. To Miss Tracy at Girli Girl for always keeping me dressed my best! To my mom and dad for all of your support and the unlimited use of your American Express card. To my big brother, Dylan, for always cheering me on and being my biggest fan.

I want to wish all of you the very best at the pageant so go out there, do your best and remember that while only one girl can be crowned, you have already won by participating  and this weekend will be an amazing experience! Finally to the new National American Miss Georgia Princess, enjoy every moment and take lots of pictures. This will be one of the best times of your life.

For the last time, I am your 2009/2010, National American Miss Georgia Princess,

Kelsey Artman
