The Little Miss Elite Academic Pageant is an event aimed at building self-esteem, recognising inner beauty, and congratulating young girls for their academic achievements. Nia Ballerina was pleased to be one of the organisations to support this year's event, which was held on 29th April 2018.
In preparation for the pageant, twenty three young ladies ages 7-12 will work with highly successful collegiate mentors from the organisation. 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. 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.
