As you may have already known our law firm has fully embraced the use of online social marketing. Our thriving Facebook Page has broken the 10,000 fan milestone. We are the first law firm in the country to do so. While engaging with the community, we realized that several hundred of our “friends” were pageant contestants. Understanding the determination and compassion of women in the pageant world, we began inquiring as to the level of interest that might exist for a pageant where a JUDGED CATEGORY would include fundraising for HAVLife. The response was overwhelming.

Encouraged by the response, we quickly formed and organized “American Spirit Pageants”. The idea was to build a pageant system that helped young women learn more about themselves and others, make new friends, build self confidence, gain greater social awareness, empower themselves and give back to the community. The essence of the American Spirit Pageant is the AMERICAN SPIRIT. The VanDerGinst Law Firm and the numerous volunteers that make up American Spirit Pageants believe that innate in the American Spirit is the desire to help one another. The TRUE American Spirit embodies character, conviction, courage, compassion and charity.
The American Spirit Pageant will be a national pageant with four divisions:
- Teen Miss (ages 13-17)
- Miss (ages 18-25)
- Ms. (unmarried with children 18-25, or with or without children over 25 and unmarried)
- Mrs. (married for at least one year)
