The 8th Annual Miss Arc Broward Pageant 2020

The 8th Annual Miss Arc Broward Pageant 2020

A Celebration of Young Women with Disabilities

PR Newswire

SUNRISE, Fla., Sept. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Miss Arc Broward Pageant is a unique experience designed to empower young women with disabilities. For eight years, the pageant has been held at the Fort Lauderdale Parker Playhouse with a sell-out audience of 1,000+ people.

The pageant celebrates diversity, acceptance, and girl power. Once crowned, the Miss Arc Broward winners advocate for girls with disabilities and spread the message to thrive and embrace life's challenges.

This year, for the first time, the Miss Arc Broward Pageant goes virtual and includes contestants from around the country. The virtual pageant will be held on Sunday, Nov. 15, at 4 p.m. and will be an even more exciting production, reaching a larger national audience.

Ten young women — ages 6 to 17 — will take the virtual stage for the 8th Annual Miss Arc Broward Pageant presented by Ultimate Kronos Group. Through talent, personality and evening wear presentations, these young women will have a chance to display their personalities and talents in an environment where everyone is accepted and applauded.

Each pageant contestant will be supported by a dedicated "Cheer Squad" composed of groups from across the country. "Cheer Squads" compose books of well wishes for the girls, sending words of encouragement and support throughout the pageant season.

As a longtime community advocate in South Florida, Arc Broward has continued to challenge and transform the public perception of individuals with disabilities for over 62 years.

To request an interview with Arc Broward or for media credentials for the virtual Miss Arc Broward Pageant, please contact Kendra Spangler, Director of Marketing and Communications, at kspangler@arcbroward.com or 508.280.7186.
