The Annual Miss Arab Pageant is founded on the basis of advancing the cause for young ladies of Arab descent. The Pageant is a charity event for the community, uniting Arabs and friends of Arabs in celebrating the Arab cultural heritage.
The Miss Arab Pageant is now managed and produced by The Arab American Festival Organization (AAF). AAF is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is classified as a public charity under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, headquartered in the State of Arizona. The Mission of AAF is to build community pride nationwide and showcases our diversity of music, arts, and cultures. And to document, preserve, celebrate, and educate the public on the history, life, culture and contributions of Arab Americans.
The pageant is just one out of many existing development projects that the AAF embarks on. The AAF takes Pageantry to the next level for young Arab women by grooming Arab Queens as great Ambassadors for humanity. The pageant redefines the image of the Arab woman as a leader and a vital partner in the development of The Middle East and the world.
This is a non-political platform for young ladies to achieve personal growth and development, take pride in their heritage, discover their inner beauty in achieving their humanitarian goals in life and laying a strong foundation as leaders of the future.
