Entry deadline is extended to give potential participants a chance to sign up
United Crowns Productions announces the return of Miss Black Kentucky USA. Giving young women of color an opportunity to experience a pageant format, showcase their talent and scholarship to assist them with their educational endeavors. The pageant will be held October 7th-9th in Louisville, Kentucky in Memorial Auditorium.
Due to the overwhelming response we needed to extend the entry deadline to August 20th to help give perspective participants an opportunity to sign up. Plus, we have added a new division. It will cater to women between the ages of 28 to 35 years of age.
Black women from all over the state of Kentucky will be in Louisville not only to compete for the crown but to learn about their heritage, meet and hear influential community leaders, network amongst fellow contestants and to win prize money that will help them further their education. United Crown Productions mission is to encourage all women to embrace their beauty and empower them with confidence and leadership skills.
Dr. Ashley Anderson, Executive Director of Miss Black Kentucky USA is excited to announce its return, her past involvement while encouraging the community to embrace these young ladies as they pursue their dreams. “When I competed in the Miss Black USA scholarship pageant in 2010, I dreamed of one day starting a preliminary program in Kentucky. The birth of the Miss Black Kentucky USA franchise is one that will have an impact on young women of Kentucky for generations to come. Beyond the scholarships that will be awarded in both Miss and Teen divisions, the life skills programming will be sure to elevate the minds and lives of all participants. It will groom leaders, shed light on issues of concerns in the community, and meaningfully fund the educational pursuits of black women in Kentucky. It is my intent that this program becomes the largest scholarship funding source for young women of color across Kentucky. Additionally, creating a space for women of color to unapologetically celebrate their culture, beauty and identity is necessary and extremely important to me.”
