Here is an event for your daughter to participate in:




You have just taken the first step to an amazing journey. We have an exciting event planned for you! You are about to create memories that will last a lifetime. Are you ready for the journey?

No looking back now…you have just entered the land of HOPE.…The Pageant of HOPE!

For a girl with special needs or challenges, hearing that you have been crowned a ‘Princess of Hope 2011’ is truly a moment she will never forget.

As a recipient of much love, support and a fulfillment of her own dream of becoming a Queen, Hanna Lynn Maslowski will be honoring other girls ranging from the ages 6-25+ in five different age brackets as the Title Holders of the National Pageant of Hope 2011 making your dreams come true.  Hanna will be the special guest hosting the Second Annual Event of the 2011 National Pageant of Hope on March 26th, 2011 held at the historic *****Earle Brown Heritage Center ***** (note: NEW LOCATION)

6155 Earle Brown Drive, Brooklyn Center MN  55430    763-569-6300

After Hanna was crowned  ‘Minnesota Junior Miss You Can Do It Queen 2009-2010’, and competed on a National level in Dallas, Texas winning the 1st runner up, ‘National Junior Miss You Can Do It Queen 2009-2010’, she felt inspired to give back to other girls with disabilities and challenges. Inspired by a dream, she will now help create a magical experience for you, like the experiences that Hanna holds dear to her heart.

You will feel like Cinderella for the evening and hopefully for many years to come.  The core tools for being successful in life-regardless of your disabilities are self esteem, confidence and motivation.

You will radiate with the core principals on your special day.

The day will be filled with enchantment, dreamy eyes and an endless amount of  ‘HOPE’.  The barriers will come down for you on this special day to create a world of magic and a lifetime of memories.

You will compete in a Private Interview, Casual Wear, Evening Gown and an On Stage Question.  As a Participant, you will leave with your own jeweled crown, a custom sash, and a gift bag of goodies.  However, most of all you will leave as a true Princess.   We will also be presenting a Photogenic Award, Best Casual Wear Award, Best Formal Wear Award and random  Hope Scholarships.

We will host two complimentary workshops for you, prior to the Pageant to inspire you to reach your goals, to instill the core tools in life and to prepare you for this special day.

Our HOPE is to give you the confidence to challenge your abilities, the ambition to dream big and the courage to hold your head high that day and every day for the rest of your life.

You will become more than a special needs child…

You will be VERY SPECIAL!  Are you getting excited?
