Ariel Thompson has proven she’s ready for the spotlight.

Bluegrass State’s newest Miss Black Kentucky USA was crowned earlier this month, winning the “Miss Division” pageant at the Oct. 9 pageant. Thompson is one of three Miss Black Kentucky Division winners, along with Teen Division winner Nia Franklin and Ms. Dominique Division winner Joy Thompson. The trio were among 15 women and girls who showed their talents for a chance to win prizes, a $5,000 scholarship and a historic pageant title.

The event – which took place this year for the first time in at least a decade – was held at the Louisville Memorial Auditorium and invited black women to compete as themselves, no matter who they are or who they are. where they come from. About 250 friends and family members were in the crowd, said Ashley Anderson, executive director of Miss Black Kentucky.
