It's More Than Just

A word from the National Executive Director and

Founder of AmeriFest National Pageants.

Thank you for visiting our website! My journey as a director began 20 years ago in Eastern Kentucky, my birthplace. As a child, I always loved the glam and sparkle of anything girly or fun. Pageants literally changed my life and my attitude, having been a terribly shy child. My first pageant I entered is so memorable to me because the obstacles I overcame. I couldn't even speak in front of a classroom, and the thought of public speaking made me burst into tears. I was very quiet and shy, and had ZERO confidence. What pageants can do for a young lady or little guy is truly amazing - and that's where our motto comes in. "It's More Than Just" encompasses so much. It's more than just a crown, more than just a title, more than just a sash; it's a REAL chance to make a difference, to set an example to those younger than you, to teach young girls the importance of serving and giving back. Truth be known the younger ones are teaching all of us what a true giving heart is. Annually our titleholders raise thousands of dollars, and over 100,000 items and donations for shelters, pantries, cancer centers, and so many more. Not to mention the service hours put in! To say I'm humbled and honored to be a part of this mission, a mission I believe God has touched, is an understatement. After 20 years I learn more every year, meeting amazing families, growing as a person and a Christian, and most importantly as a woman and a mom. We can all lift each other up and deliver a positive message to others, and maybe just maybe for a moment others can see God shine through what we do. We hope you will join our pageant family! We would love to talk with you and spread the love! #WeAreFamily #ItsMoreThanJust

God Bless,

Dianne Turner
