All interested Little Miss Black America participants (9 to 12 years of age) must register as Miss Black America Contestants by applying on line or submitting an application form at an official registration site and paying a $50.00 application fee.

All participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

All Local Little Miss Black America contestants (those who compete in an Official MBA City Pageant) will compete in a Local Preliminary MBA Pageant to select the Best Actress; Best Singer; and, the Best Dancer. Little MBA's do not compete in a swimsuit, or projection competition (answering a question).


Little MBA Contestants who reside outside of the Official MBA Pageant Cities, or in any city where an MBA Pageant is not held, may enter directly into the National Final MBA Competition as a Little MBA Contestant-At-Large.

The winners of the Official City Pageant advances to the national competition and win prize packages.
