PRESS RELEASE: The 2011 Official Miss Black Minnesota Pageant Seeks to Create Opportunities for Women of Color

For Immediate Release:

“2011 Miss Black Minnesota Pageant Seeks to Reestablish Its Longtime Goal, While Celebrating The Outstanding Accomplishments of Today’s Young Leaders.”

(Minneapolis, MN) After a 5 year absence, a valued organization is finally back to honor a deserving demographic.

For years, The Official Miss Black Minnesota- Scholarship Pageant (OMBMP) has been responsible for rewarding a distinguished group of young women for their outstanding educational accomplishments, talents, and continued leadership in the minority community.

Where some pageants place an emphasis on “beauty,” OMBMP’s goal is to provide a positive platform, for Women of Color between the ages of 5 and 27, to showcase their creativity, inherent beauty, and intellect. Through the recognition of their groundbreaking achievements, the organization assists in creating opportunities that continue to develop the participants, “whole woman mind, body and spirit.” A necessary tool in realizing one’s potential in today’s society.

OMBMP is under new management as X-CEL Entertainment, NexLevel Entertainment and PR3 Enterprises, join forces to reestablish this long time program in the hopes that the worlds focus will be redirected to the necessity of providing young women with the gift of training and education, in an effort to prepare tomorrow’s leaders, today.

Currently, they’re recruiting participants for the December Pageant, where one lucky winner will be crowned The 2011 Official Miss Black Minnesota. She will receive an educational scholarship, cash prizes, media exposure, amongst other rewards. The winner will also be provided with roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations for a chance at the National Crown next year, where she’ll compete with women from all over the world who exemplify a no boundaries look at strength and leadership.

Information and Registration sessions will be occurring throughout the month of October, with the first one slated for October 2nd, 4pm – 6:30pm at the Mall of America in the “Boundary Waters Room.” The age groups of the program are as follows: The Princess Program 5-10 Talented Teen 13-17and Miss Pageant 18-27.

If you’re interested in hosting a session, opportunities are still available as OMBMP works to re-imagine an important mission, through the gift of building awareness and reward.

Remember, it’s not only about identifying a need in fostering tomorrow’s leaders, it’s also about conveying the necessity of us all working together to meet this demand. Tell a friend to tell a friend about this important opportunity.

The 2011 Official Miss Black Minnesota-Scholarship Pageant will be held December 4th, 2010 at the Ted Mann Concert Hall on the University of Minnesota Campus.

Come down and celebrate the positive achievements of a diverse group of women.
