ALLENTOWN, NJ – This past Saturday afternoon, NJ Miss Amazing held their annual event at Allentown High School. 28 girls participated in the event this year, as the NJ Chapter director Kerry Bascik describes it as “celebrating the abilities of all people.”

WBNC News spoke with the director of the Miss Amazing NJ chapter earlier this year on our weekly show.

The event kicked off Friday night with the girls meeting new friends and eating pizza! Following the JROTC Navy and the national anthem, everyone participated in a musical number to Demi Lovato’s empowering song, “Confident.”

The MC of the evening was philanthropist and media personality Alyssa Lego, where she introduced the 25 total acts, ranging from singers, dancers, instrument solos, gymnastics, and poetry. As the evening continued on, each talent performer was awarded a medal after the talent portion of the event.

She has also participated in the Special Olympics for 25 years and was the first woman with an intellectual disability to present an Emmy alongside fellow cast member John Tucker in 2017.
