What they are saying…

You are amazing and what a role model for young women in our county. I am so proud of you for taking on this endeavor…Congratulations on the opportunity to present a wonderful inspiring, and excellent program.

Thank you again, it was very exciting!

As a first time judge, I was completely surprised by how rewarding the experience was.  All of the girls were so impressive. They were composed, intelligent, talented, ambitious, articulate, and genuinely concerned for others and the world around them.  The Miss Placer County pageant provides an exceptional opportunity for young people to develop and build invaluable life skills – which will serve them well, no matter what path they choose.

Both of our daughters participated in the Miss Placer County Pageant (Teen and Jr.) and it was an amazing experience. The coaching was very helpful for both girls. It was a very constructive and positive environment. From the first practice to the last, both of my daughters had so much confidence and poise. They also have refined interview skills and a great resume with the help of the coaching team, as well as proper communication skills. Another wonderful part of this experience is the friendships the girls have built that will last a lifetime. I am so thankful for this experience for both of my girls!

Being a former high school football coach I had no idea what being asked to judge a beauty pageant would be like. No slobbering, hitting and huddles. How can I judge this? All that I knew is that if Tami Uhler and her husband Kirk were involved it was going to be top notch. I am happy to report that the young ladies and the Uhlers did not disappoint. I learned what goes on behind the scenes and how hard these girls work to compete. From the difficult interview process, to the character building lessons, the posing, the dances and most of all the lifelong friendships these young ladies pushed through during the difficult judging phase - IT WAS AMAZING! I would highly recommend this pageant to anyone who wants their young lady to grow their professional portfolio while learning leadership, employment skills, friendship skills, poise and pride. I am so grateful I had the honor to be a judge. These young ladies taught me something and proved to me you’re never too old to learn! Thank you Tami for the experience and great job!

What a wonderful organization to be part of! Tami runs this pageant with the utmost of class. She creates a warm and enriching environment that provides an opportunity for young girls and ladies to learn, grow, and reach goals they never thought possible. Thank you Tami for bringing such a wonderful program back into the world of pageantry!

We want to convey a heartfelt thank you for welcoming (our daughter) into your pageant family. We are now all of your biggest fans and consider you exemplary examples of people who have the hearts to give back so selflessly to our youth and community.

This was my first pageant and boy, do I wish I would’ve done this years ago because it’s been one of the best experiences of my life.  I found the most amazing, talented, funny, and beautiful (inside and out) group of girls.  They were so welcoming with open arms, and I very quickly found a fantastic group of friends.  Even quicker than that I was accepted into this ever-loving family that supports each other, share smiles, and laughter, and creates like a sisterhood.  I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon this and will forever cherish all that I’ve learned here, everything that I have experienced, and all the phenomenal people that I have had the pleasure of meeting.  All of this and so much more created the perfect first pageant and I am forever grateful crowned or not, to being the proud, confident woman that I’ve become.  Once again, thank YOU soooo much for an amazing first pageant and electing me for the Spirit Award! I'm so blessed to have met you and everyone else, it was definitely a life-changing experience 🙂 Even my mom thought it was one of the most professional and beautifully put together stage productions she's ever seen! I absolutely cannot wait until the next opportunity, you bet I'll be there next year! ;). Thank you with all my heart, Tami and Up!

I had a blast! Thank you for this experience! I'm definitely going to come out next year ♡ 

Congratulations on a job well done!! That was probably the smoothest pageant I have ever been associated with.  On behalf of the fair association, I want to thank you for your professionalism, expertise, organization, and presentation.  I feel you produced just the type of pageant the board and the public was looking for…(we) definitely would request you to return and produce the 2016 Miss Placer County Pageant.  Thank you so much for helping us make this one of the best fairs in years.
