Texas Tech to Host International Pageant

University students are encouraged to participate and represent a country of their choice.

Texas Tech University's Students for Global Connections (SGC) and the Office of International Affairs is hosting The World of Colors International Pageant from 6-8 p.m. Friday (Nov. 21) at the City Bank Auditorium, located at 2720 Drive of Champions.

“The International Cultural Pageant is an event that showcases the rich global environment that exists at Texas Tech and in the Lubbock community,” said Tracy Tindle, international student life administrator in the Office of International Affairs. “There are more than 2,500 international students from 110 countries around the world attending Texas Tech. This event is a great opportunity for the community to experience a variety of cultures while giving our international guests the opportunity to educate our community.”

Judging categories include cultural clothing, cultural/talent performance, formal clothing and a global intelligence question. Each participant will be judged in each of these categories to crown a male and female winner.

To participate, individuals must attend all rehearsals and be in good academic and immigration standing within Texas Tech. Participants do not need to be an international student to join this pageant. Prizes will be awarded to both winners and runners-up.

The pageant is free for those who want to attend. For more information on the event click here, visit the Facebook event page or email mrunali.pati@ttu.edu.
