Pageants and Leadership
A new kind of pageant.
HeartShine is an all-ages, progressive, body-positive national pageant system founded in 2012 by Ciara "Miss HeartShine" Barnes and her mom, DannaMomma. Celebrate "inner-beauty" with this innovative program that empowers, inspires, and changes lives!
Not only do we award incredible prizes and opportunities, but HeartShine is also a certifying organization for the Presidential Volunteer Service Awards and scholarships are available for State and National queens/titleholders.
We invite you to join us at an upcoming pageant near you or an appointed (virtual) program. We'll help you grow your confidence and leadership skills through positive experiences, community service events, personal development workshops, modeling & performing opportunities, and so much more. Fun, welcoming, and unforgettable - that's just HeartShine!
