Miss Grambling Ambra Brice is ranked number nine in Verizon’s Ultimate Reign Competition.
The competition is sponsored by Verizon which features 10 HBCU kings and queens competing for a chance to win $15,000 for their respective charities. The website displays all ten contestants and their platforms. Students can then vote for their favorite contestant on the website.
Bryce is one of 8 HBCU queens in the contest.
Bryce plans to use the money for the Boys and Girls Club for which she began volunteering with the program during her sophomore year in college as “Miss Cover Girl.”
“I love what the Boys and Girls club stands for: uplifting students for the next generation,” said Brice.
Brice also notes that in the program, students are “mentored by professionals” as opposed to those with little education background.
“Education is important,” said Brice.
Miss Grambling wants to allocate the funds towards technology by using Verizon LTE Wi-Fi service while also providing basic materials such as projectors, printers, software, chairs, and math and reading programs.
Brice says technology is important to a schools learning environment because it “prepares them for life”. Learning how to use the most up to date technologies is essential for the students’ future.
Brice also believes that the program will help recruit younger children to Grambling, especially since most of the students are minorities.
Brice is encouraging all students to vote for her because through the program she will be able to bring more recruits to Grambling.
The contest ends November 18th. In addition to the Ultimate Reign Competition, Brice plans to host seminars for freshman women as well as “cater to university, and assist SGA and class queens”.
