American Teen University Enrichment Workshops

In preparation for the pageant and beyond, the contestants participate in a series of workshops designed to increase their confidence level both academically and personally. The workshops include the following topics: interviewing, public speaking, personal style and grooming and career planning. The workshop curricula is designed and implemented by active teachers and school administrators. The career planning workshop includes identifying and pairing the participants with career mentors who work in their chosen professions.

Participants who demonstrate financial need are eligible for a scholarship which can be used to defray the costs of participating in the pageant. This scholarship allows the spirit of the competition to be maintained by leveling the economic playing field. Contestants may use the funds to purchase appropriate wardrobe and incidentals. The Pageant Committee is committed to inviting the "best of the best" of high school seniors to participate in the scholarship program notwithstanding restrictive socioeconomic factors. In addition, the area served consists of diverse populations of people with varying financial capacity. As we expand the number of participants in the program, this fund will play an integral role in the successful recruitment of role models for each population group.

All school nominees who are accepted into the pageant receive scholarship funds for post-secondary study at an accredited college or university. Candidates must demonstrate excellence in the following areas: scholarship, service, leadership, talent and achievement. The competition consists of personal and on-stage interviews, an essay, talent performance, community service record, overall presentation and personal message. Judges assess the candidate's ability and comfort level with public speaking, specifically their ability to impact their peers in a positive way. Generally, candidates must qualify with a high grade point average (top 10% ranking or higher), a balance of extra-curricular and community service activities, and a specific vision of their future academic and career goals. The winner of the competition is awarded a scholarship.

At the beginning of the program year and in recognition of their status as a role model, each participant is honored during a "crowning" ceremony in which they receive a title and pageant regalia (crown & sash). The ceremony formalizes which community their reign will support (coinciding with the neighborhood the participant lives in and/or attends school).

At the end of the program, each participant receives a trophy, certificate and a scholarship check during the post-pageant awards ceremony and banquet. The awards banquet is the last opportunity for the participant class to interact before going off to college.

American Teen University (ATU) is a nationwide program that consists of educational workshops targeted to inner-city, minority and underprivileged girls 12 to 18 years of age. The program reinforces the message that all girls are beautiful despite their life circumstances and challenges. The mission of ATU is to build confidence in teens and tweens, inspire them to attend college, and provide them with important life skills and resources.
Our day-long events give girls the opportunity to meet and bond with each other, learn about important health issues and share tips to make them feel confident in their own skin. They are treated to a fashion show and receive free give-aways and spa services by local volunteer vendors. This event is a twelve city tour across U.S. major cities.
