MISS DELTA TEEN PAGEANT
The Jacksonville Alumnae Chapter's long-standing premier event, Jabberwock, a musical variety show had come to an end after 25 years. In 1972, it was re-launched as the Miss Delta Teen pageant, with the first pageant presented in the spring of 1973.
Today the pageant has evolved to "Developing Sisters of Tomorrow" - The Miss Delta Teen Pageant. It focuses on the personal growth and development of teen girls in the 9th-12th grades.
Workshops and rehearsals are held that includes communication skills, educational, cultural, community service, and personal enrichment activities. The pageant also creates an opportunity for the young ladies to display their talents.
This year's pageant will be held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 to continue the tradition of teaching personal development behind the scenes, showcasing the talents of our youth on stage, while entertaining and serving the Jacksonville community.
This event is a fundraiser for the Jacksonville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. All the funds raised are invested into the Jacksonville community through service projects and scholarships for graduating high school seniors.
