DEBUTANTE BALL

Miss Debutante Winners.jpeg

The Debutante Ball is a collaboration with the Beta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.  The Debutante Ball is biennially presented as a means of encouraging high scholastic achievement among young ladies.

The Debutante Ball is an avenue used to introduce deserving and outstanding young ladies as Debutantes to Kansas City society in a formal setting. A Debutante is a young lady who has been prepared in the social graces, trained to dance formally, and who is community service oriented. She is then presented to her community in a formal presentation, which is her first public appearance in society. All Debutante participants must be sponsored by a financially active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated is an international organization of over 125,000 college women with a common goal to improve human life through service to others. There are more than 800 chapters in the United States, West Africa, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Germany, Bermuda, and Korea.

To be considered for presentation in 2024, a young lady must:

  • Be a high school senior or a college freshman during the 2024-2025 school year.

  • Have a cumulative grade average of C+ (2.75) or highter on a 4.0 point system

  • Not be pregnant before/during the Debutante Ball season, never have had a child, and never been married or engaged.

  • Have not been presented in other Divine 9 pageants (i.e. Cotillion, Jabberwock, Rhomania).  (Activities sponsored by a church or secondary school are not included.)
