Miss Black & Old Gold Scholarship Pageant Dec. 3
Kappa Kappa chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc

The Kappa Kappa chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. cordially invites all U of A students to attend the annual Miss Black & Old Gold Scholarship Pageant at 7:06 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, in the Arkansas Union Verizon Ballroom. This year's theme for the pageant is Phrozen in Time: A Winter Wonderland.

This event is open only to U of A students. All students who present a valid university ID will receive free admission into the event.

The Miss Black and Gold Competition is an event whose primary purpose is to highlight and foster the inextricable connection between success and etiquette amongst young women. This pageant spotlights the young women's poise, self-confidence, communication skills, intelligence and beauty. In all, the Miss Black and Gold Pageant encompasses true womanhood, success and confidence. Academic excellence and scholarship are greatly stressed in the competition with the fraternity providing the contestants with awards to assist with the financial obligations associated with postsecondary studies.

The men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. host the Miss Black and Gold Pageant each year. This is a national mandated and required program under the sponsorship of Alpha Phi Alpha and all the fraternity's undergraduate chapters. It is an outgrowth of the long tradition of Alpha Chapters designating outstanding young ladies to serve as "Chapter Sweethearts." The fraternity recognizes the valuable support rendered to it by the many friends of Alpha Phi Alpha, and these endeavors serve as one mechanism to applaud such support.

This year's theme is Phrozen in Time: A Winter Wonderland, which means each of the contestants has worked diligently for such a moment as this. This experience will leave a momentous legacy that is timeless and cannot be duplicated or erased. We believe that each of the contestants possesses confidence, elegance, beauty and poise, and they are all truly winners in our eyes, and we hope that they will impress you with their gifts, talents and attributes both individually and collectively.

This event is supported by the Student Activities Fee as a funded event by the Associated Student Government and is free to all currently enrolled University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, students who pay the student activities fee. This event is held in a venue that meets ADA standards. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend this event. If you require a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this event, please contact Pageant Chairman and Chapter President Jarron Gray at jng006@uark.edu or call 479-575-5255 by five business days prior to the event.
