An Outstanding Representative of the Lumbee Tribe

Each year in conjunction with the annual Lumbee Homecoming Festival, Lumbee Regional Development Association holds a Miss Lumbee Scholarship Awards Pageant to select an outstanding young Lumbee woman to serve as an official representative of the tribe at major public events of importance to the Lumbee tribe.

Miss Lumbee makes public appearances, speaking engagements, and promotions on behalf of the Lumbee tribe and LRDA. Her schedule includes appearances at all the major festivals and events sponsored by LRDA.

Contestants for the coveted title are judged at the Scholarship Pageant in areas of appearance, presentation skills, talent in performing arts, and knowledge of Lumbee culture. The winner of the contest is crowned Miss Lumbee and receives a scholarship award, prizes, and other support for her activities during her one year reign.
