CHICAGO (May 6, 2015) — EBONY magazine is proud to continue the tradition of celebrating the accomplishments of African-American college students with the launch of its annual HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) EBONY Campus Queens feature.
For nearly four decades, EBONY has celebrated the next generation of rising Black professional women in the magazine. The HBCU Campus Queens is one of EBONY’s longest-running editorial franchises, and the young women highlighted are poised to affect great social change within their communities.
The Top 10 vote getters on the website will receive an all-expense paid trip complete with a stay at a luxury hotel. The royal treatment continues as each of the 10 Queens receive a makeover with professional hair, makeup and wardrobe styling for an exclusive photo shoot that will appear in the September 2015 issue of EBONY magazine. 
Voters can select their favorite Queen on now through May 22nd; however, the Queens will not be the only winners in this campaign.  Each voter can enter a sweepstakes to win a free pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones each time he or she submits a vote. A total of four sweepstakes winners will be selected, with one winner announced every Friday. Voters are welcome to vote as many times as they like throughout the duration of the online campaign period.
