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.
