More Than A Pageant

Welcome to the 3rd Annual

Miss Juneteenth America Scholarship Pageantry Program™

The Miss Juneteenth America Scholarship Pageantry Program is more than a pageant. It is a transformative and empowering experience designed for young ladies nationwide between the ages of 13 and 18. Unlike traditional pageants, this program surpasses superficial beauty and talent showcases by breaking stereotypes, fostering personal growth, and strengthening the participants’ sense of cultural awareness. Through various learning opportunities, such as historical lectures, cultural performances, and community engagement, participants develop a deeper understanding of African and African American history, heritage, and honorable achievements.
