For the past 22 years, Florida women seeking the Miss Black Florida USA title never got the chance to wow a crowd with their talents, or sashay across a stage in a glittering glamorous gown at a state pageant to compete for the title.

Current Miss Black Florida Asari Maurice, along with all the other previous winners, completed a mail-in entry, and were selected by the national Miss Black USA scholarship pageant organization to represent Florida in the national pageant. For Miss Black Florida USA 2010, however, it will be a different story.

On Saturday, Nov. 7, teenagers between the ages of 14-17 and young women ages 18-27 will seek to awe the judges at the 1st Annual Miss Black Florida USA and Talented Teen scholarship pageant at the Hilton in Daytona Beach.

The difference this time around is that Florida now has its own official branch affiliate to the Miss Black USA pageant, replacing the mail-in entry. The pageant will provide a preliminary competition for contestants in the Miss Black Florida USA title, plus a $2,500 scholarship.

The deadline to enter this year’s pageant was Aug. 31.

Angel Coleman is the executive director of Miss Black Florida USA.  The former Miss Homestead USA 2006 has competed and won awards in mainstream local and national beauty pageants since age 17. But, she said, in the beginning, she had no guidance on how to train and compete.

“When I got there I wasn’t even ready for that type of competition, they take it to a whole other level, it’s like a sport,” she said.
