Mr. and Ms. UCO International Pageant

None
7 p.m., Friday March 29

The University of Central Oklahoma will celebrate its diverse international student population with the annual Mr. and Ms. UCO International Pageant at 7 p.m., March 29, in Constitution Hall, Nigh University Center.

“The Mr. and Ms. UCO International Pageant is unlike any other pageant because it focuses on the beauty of international cultures that are represented right here at Central,” said Tracy Tindle, coordinator for international students for Central’s Office of International Services.

“Guests should expect to see traditional cultural dress, traditional cultural performances, as well as some of the traditional elements seen in most other pageants.”

Sponsored by the International Student Council, each of the winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship.  Each of the first runners-up will win a $700 scholarship and each of the second runners-up will receive a $400 scholarship.

The pageant is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
