Creating Changemakers

Our alumni inspire the next generation as teachers, mentors, innovators, and community activists. That's true impact.


Developing Character

We underscore that intelligence pairs best with integrity. Our mentors model leadership, sportsmanship, and respect.


Sparking Volunteerism

We encourage and provide opportunities for all to apply their gifts to uplift their community through service projects.



Our programs teach youth to recognize their self-worth. We offer an environment that builds up rather than tears down.

Unlocking Potential

Do you know how young people can recognize their self-worth, gain confidence, and achieve their biggest dreams?

Akimet is more than just a nonprofit; it’s a youth empowerment movement. Through our national beauty pageants and signature competitions, we inspire students to celebrate their inner talents, intellectual gifts, and ability to make a difference. Our participants gain poise, public speaking skills, critical thinking, and, most importantly, college scholarships to fund their education.

We’re unlocking the potential of youth across America. Our events nurture creativity and leadership in students from birth to age 25. Akimet awards academic scholarships to help brilliant young minds achieve their college dreams.

Support Our National beauty Pageant

Miss Prodigious

While most pageants focus on physical appearance and popularity, Akimet's competitions celebrate the inner qualities that truly matter.

Unlike some competitions, we focus on bringing out the best in people rather than pitting them against each other. Judges evaluate contestants on their academic merits, community service, and intellectual gifts – not clothing sizes.

Pageant winners receive up to $10,000 in college scholarships.
