The Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Mu Sigma Chapter extends our warmest greetings to you to visit our Annual Black and Gold Pageant. For the past 20 years, our chapter annually hosts a scholarship pageant/ball entitled Miss Black and Gold. The name comes from the colors of the Fraternity which was established in 1906 at Cornell University. The purpose of Miss Black and Gold Scholarship Pageant is to portray women in a strong, positive, and beautiful light. The pageant will feature contestants who will be charged with creating individual philanthropic platforms and developing plans to implement those platforms. Contestants in addition will be judged based on their interview skills and their performances during the talent portion of the pageant. The winner of the pageant will receive a scholarship and the opportunity to compete for Miss Black and Gold at our district, regional and eventually nationals; the highest level.
The Mu Sigma chapter awards a scholarship to a deserving young female student who will be continuing their education as a full-time matriculated student at a college or university within the Rochester Area. The scholarship ensures monetary support, moral, and social support from students on our campuses and the members of the chapter.
With the aforementioned being said, we humbly request your presence to our Annual Miss Black and Gold "Refined Elegance" on Saturday, October 20th, 2012 at 6pm at the CIMS Center at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The theme is Coming to America; a contrast between how beauty and elegance was defined by your roots and culture in juxtaposition to the beauty and elegance of today.
