The Miss Black Houston Pageant, Miss Black Teen Houston Pageant, and Ms. Black Houston Pageant are looking for ambassadors to represent Houston, the state, as well as, nationally and internationally. The winners may not score the highest in any one particular category but will do well in all events. They will be young women who possess the entire package of poise, personality, intelligence and beauty. They should understand that, along with the prizes and glamour, there comes a responsibility to the pageant system, sponsors, community and to Texas. They automatically and instantly become role models. It is certain to be a year of personal growth and maturing that money cannot buy.

*There is no talent competition and no experience is necessary
