About America United Pageant - Our Director

Janet Linge Chowning

Janet is no stranger to pageantry. She began competing when she was a teenager and continued competing into her 40’s holding several state, local and national titles. The pageant bug has never left her blood. She began directing pageants in 1992 and since then has directed on the local, state and national levels. Janet sees pageantry as a way to open doors and make the crazy world we live in a better place. She is married to her husband Clay and is mother to one son and two daughters (who also have held national titles) and grandmother to three granddaughters and 3 grandsons.
