About Delaware Juneteenth Pageant

The Delaware Juneteenth Association (DEJA) develops and implements strategic prevention programming that addresses the problems facing our communities: alcohol, tobacco and substance abuse, domestic and gang related violence, teen pregnancy and low self-esteem by educating our children from pre-school to young adults through workshops and cultural events that provide knowledge and celebrate the African American experience as our heritage relates to all people.

Local Miss Juneteenth pageants are held across the country each year with students vying for college scholarships. They are not contests focused on beauty. Instead the focus is all about empowerment, history, community service and honoring Black culture.

The Delaware Miss Juneteenth Pageant, usually held at the baby grand in Wilmington, has been held for 23 years, administered by the Delaware Juneteenth Association. It draws about 10 to 12 contestants vying for a $2,000 prize toward the college of their choice.
