The Little Miss Pink Atlanta & The Miss Pink Atlanta is program and fundraiser hosted by the Atlanta Women of Wealth and The Power of Pink Girls Ink. We have dedicated this program to providing self-esteem enhancing programs for girls that uplift, educate and motivate girls to become leaders within their community.
Our (5) main areas of self-development:
Inner – Beauty
The Power of Pink Girls Ink. Sweetheart Scholarship Pageant to enrichment program is two pageants combined to make one big amazing inner beauty celebration for girls ages 5-18.
Why Are We doing this?
We live in a society where girls are constantly judged by their physical beauty which ads unneeded stress to girls everyday lives. So instead of focusing on one’s physical appearance, this pageant program celebrates girls for having enough courage and confidence to embrace their natural beauty with pride while presenting their inner beauty to the world. After all, true beauty comes from within, and we encourage our participants to let their inner-character traits shine.
This is not your traditional pageant. This is a pageant that teaches principles. Our goal is to instill positive values while enhancing girls social skills. Each category is associated with specific life skills which steer girls towards success in life. Our pageant participants also demonstrates their inner beauty by giving back to the community as part of their pageant experience.
Additionally we offer several Pre-Pageant Confidence Workshops to all pageant participants where girls make new friends and have fun while learning lessons on public speaking, poise, posture, etiquette, and everything else that they need to know to grace the pageant stage with confidence.
Lastly, this pageant program is a fundraiser for The Atlanta Women of Wealth & The Power of Pink Women’s Network Breast Cancer awareness program for October 2017. We celebrate and honor women within various communities that have been affected or survived any type of cancer.
What makes this pageant different?
We believe that true beauty comes from within, therefore make-up is not required but if you choose to wear it we encourage you to, but points WILL NOT be deducted for not wearing make-up. It’s not all about the Glitz & Glam but the confidence and character!! If you choose to wear add on like eye-lashes, hair extensions, and anything else it’s totally up to you but it’s not a major requirement. We encourage our participants to focus on inner beauty traits such as character development, public speaking skills, poise, etiquettes, and confidence. We consider our pageant program more of an inner beauty rather than a traditional pageant because each girl is individually unique and called upon on stage to receive her special recognition, and everyone goes home with a Crown, Sash, and trophy amongst other prizes!!!
New to Pageants?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you!! NO EXPERIENCE is necessary to participate, and girls with pageant experience are treated just as girls without pageant experience. We also teach you skills to shine on stage at our Pre-Pageant confidence workshop. At this workshop, girls received instructions on poise, the pageant walk, stage stance, public speaking skills, etiquettes, and much more!! So, this will prepare the girls to get on stage and have lots of fun at the pageant and plus get a chance to attend our Girls Brunch Too Leadership Brunch.
