Miss Spelman and Her Court

HBCU Campus Queens Competition

Support Janna Perry, Miss Spelman 2017-2018, by voting for her in EBONY’s HBCU Campus Queens online competition. According to the contest organizers, "Historically Black Colleges and Universities were founded to promote Black excellence and brilliance, and each reigning beauty was elected by her peers and/or school officials to represent those standards for her institution of higher learning."

The Spelman community has the power to make a difference. You are allowed to cast three votes in a 24-hour period. So you can vote for Perry several times to help ensure she becomes one of the top 10 contestants who will then be featured in the magazine.

Additionally, the top 10 EBONY Campus Queens will travel to Disney and participate in their annual parade. This is a new option and honor because Disney typically does not allow any non-Disney characters to walk in their parades.

Vote for Janna Perry Today

Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 31, 2018.
