Little Miss Elite
this is not your
As an organization that thrives on inner-beauty, empowerment, and self-love, our services include the teachings of our values. We believe an important part of that is to empower the youth by commending academic excellence, social etiquette, and inner beauty. Thus, The Little Miss Elite Academic Pageant was born. The Little Miss Elite academic pageant is an event aimed at building self-esteem, recognizing inner beauty, and congratulating young girls for their academic achievements.
In preparation for the pageant, twenty three young ladies ages 7-12 will work with highly successful collegiate mentors from the organization.
Each week mentors who are also known as "pageant moms" will work with the participants to implement a new teaching objective. The lessons are designed to prepare them for not only the pageant showcase but also for the real world once the program has ended. These lessons include a wide array of topics such as inner beauty, poise, and healthy living.
During the showcase, participants are not allowed to wear any makeup or get judged on outer beauty. Instead, they are scored on creativity, growth, and community involvement.
The pageant attracts over 250 attendees each year and even includes special guest judges such as Rebecca Dunn (Miss Missouri USA 2015), Hadassah Richardson (Americas Next Top Model), and many more!
In addition to the pageant showcase and mentoring sessions, the program also consists of fun activities such as movie nights, slumber parties, luncheons and much more.
The Little Miss Elite Academic Pageant is truly a special event that
we look forward to growing each and every year.
