THE KING’S DAUGHTERS PAGEANT

l to r: Princess Aleigha Michele Harvey and Princess Aniyah Ariontay LaJean White

The King’s Daughters World Ministries held its annual Princess Pageant Sunday, September 13, 2015. The event took place at the Bradley University Student Center Ballroom in Peoria, IL. Fourteen young princesses participated in the pageant after 12 weeks of Princess Prep School training and rehearsals. The ministry promotes Purity, Power, and Purpose with focus on faith, good morals, etiquette, self-improvement and academic achievement.

There are three age groups ranging from ages 5 through 16. This year’s pageant had participants in age group 5-8 Princess Pearls and age group 9-12 Princess Jewels. Program segments included a talent showcase, fashion show, coronation ceremony, princess prizes and scholarships.

All of the participants received a tiara, sash, t-shirt, prizes and a one-year Princess Club membership. Those that scored the highest in their age category earned additional prizes, a trophy and a scholarship. This year’s Princess Pearl Award Winner was Princess Aniyah Ariontay LaJean White (pictured on the right). The Princess Jewel Award Winner was Princess Aleigha Michele Harvey (pictured on the left). They will hold that title and represent the ministry until the next pageant. Runners-up in the Princess Pearl and Princess Jewel categories were Princess Samiya Janey Gordon and Princess Zariah Gabriella Franklin-Randle respectively.

A special award was given in honor and in loving memory of Mr. Albert Davis Gordon Sr. His daughter, Princess Sherry Gordon-Harris, presented a Family Leadership Award to Mr. Clifford Harvey for his strength, great fatherhood, provision, and support.

Congratulations to all the Princesses! And thanks to all the attendees, volunteers, promoters, and supporters.
