Miss Black & Gold Scholarship Pageant
Throughout the history of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, the Miss Black and Gold Pageant has become very near and dear to our hearts. The pageant is an outgrowth of the long tradition of our Fraternity’s designation of outstanding young ladies to serve as role models in the community. The Nu Beta Chapter recognizes the valuable contributions rendered to it by the many supporters of Alpha Phi Alpha, and this endeavor serves as just one mechanism to applaud such support.
The first Miss Black and Gold Pageant was sponsored by the National Alpha Phi Alpha Convention in New York City in 1976, with our first Queen, Miss Denise Smith being crowned at that event. The pageant became a national program of Alpha and a staple at our conferences in 1982, making this year the 28th Annual National Competition under its current format.
Along with the $750.00 in scholarship sponsored by the Nu Beta Chapter, our Queen will receive the opportunity to compete at the district (state) level in the spring of 2013, along with the winners from other colleges and universities. She also becomes a life long member of the "Nu Beta Family," and will hold a special place in the tradition of Alpha.
The Extraordinary Gentlemen of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Nu Beta Chapter have found our stars and now we are ready to let them glow at their full potential to see who will be the brightest of them all. So prepare for beauty, intelligence, and poise.
