Whatever happened to the Miss Deaf America Ambassador Program (MDAAP)?

During the 2012 NAD Conference, we witnessed a moment in history — the last Miss Deaf America Ambassador Competition. After forty years, in the fall of 2012, we have unveiled a new and modern program. The new program will not be a pageant. The new program, Youth Ambassador Program, will showcase young deaf and hard of hearing female and male Americans who vie to become NAD youth ambassadors.
