Miss Amazing winner competes on national stage
When her mother asked Katlyn Aubitz if she was interested in competing in a local pageant, Aubitz surprised her mother by saying yes.
Two years later, Katlyn’s mother Ann was traveling with her daughter to Chicago for Katlyn’s entry into the National Miss Amazing 2016 pageant, a pageant that brought together competitors from 30 states. Katlyn earned her trip to Chicago by being crowned a Minnesota Miss Amazing queen in April.
The multi-day trip kept competitors like Katlyn busy most mornings, afternoons and evenings, much like a typical national pageant. But the Miss Amazing competition differs from many other pageants across the country – its competitors are women and girls with disabilities. The pageant emphasizes building confidence and self-esteem amongst its competitors.
