the project

Tickets for the 1st Annual Miss HBCU Teen Scholarship Pageant are ON SALE for purchase! 👑
www.misshbcuteenpageant.eventbrite.com

On July 31st, 5 talented and accomplished DMV natives and incoming HBCU freshmen will earn over $6,000 in scholarships to pursue their education and you can watch them LIVE! 👸🏾

There are so many high school students back in my local community, and around the world, that have no idea of these experiences & or empowering, unified culture. Many may hear about it from recruiters or staff, but rarely get a taste or preview of that experience themselves, even during college tours. With that, and knowing how much talent lives in our youth, we decided to bring that HBCU experience directly to high school students.

We are the first and only team to produce a pageant exclusively girls of color committed to attending HBCUs. We encourage community support as it reflects not only the culture at Historically Black Colleges & Universities, but also the values we encourage on our contestants.

The Miss HBCU Teen Scholarship Pageant aims to benefit the community full-circle; starting with students, connected with alumni associations, partnered with supportive businesses, and led to our prestigious HBCUs.

the steps

  • Hosting enriching workshops and trainings that develop students’ skills like communication & public speaking, leadership, networking, financial literacy, branding, and civic engagement.
  • Equipping contestants with resources that support their transition into college. This includes backpack & school supplies, carepackages, learning platforms, and subscriptions to scholarship platforms.
  • Ensuring effective additions to the students' professional network. This network includes the HBCU community & alumni associations, career professionals in their desired field, life mentors, other Black beauty queens, and youth in the community that they inspire.

why we're doing it

We are extremely passionate about higher learning at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and believe that empowering youth in underserved communities will not only equip them with the skills & resources needed to be successful upon arrival, but also inspire other youth to pursue the same level of excellence and confidence. HBCU pageants are one-of-a-kind experiences that many have never encountered, but could benefit from.
