Registration open for Junior Miss and Mr. UAPB pageant


Girls and boys ages 3-14 can register to compete for the title of Little Miss and Mr. University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

The pageant is set for Aug. 24 and has the theme, “Celebrating African American Child Stars.” Hosted by the newly elected Miss UAPB, Alexis Cole, the theme was chosen because it highlights her platform, “Be True, Be You!”

“I chose the theme because I feel that all of our children are shining stars,” says Cole. “They may not be on television for millions to see or have extravagant lifestyles, but they are all children of God, which makes them a shining star in their own right.”

Interested participants can get an application from the Office of Residential Life on the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff campus.

For more information or to register, call 901-282-1027 or 870-413-6411.
