A historic tradition is continuing, this time with an emphasis on STEM; science, technology, engineering, and math.
The print edition is in partnership with OLAY and with the new focus on STEM, EBONY reports that it’s dedicated to recognizing collegiate Black women who are “poised to affect significant societal change – both locally and globally.”

EBONY reports that the winners were crowned following a nationwide online competition that allowed users to vote for their favorite contestants. In addition to landing the cover of EBONY, the winning Queens received an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles for EBONY’s star-studded Power 100 awards ceremony held in October 2021, inclusive of a full makeover and photoshoot.
