TALLADEGA -- The Talladega County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated presented its biannual “Jabberwock” program March 4 at the Historic Ritz Theater in Talladega.

The theme, “A Journey through the Past Celebrating 40 years Then and Now,” was a tribute to the Talladega County Alumnae Chapter’s 40th anniversary.

The contestants were divided into three categories: Little Miss Jabberwock (2-7), Little Miss Crimson and Cream (8-11) and Miss Jabberwock (12-18), with an additional category titled “People’s Choice.”

The Jabberwock is a fundraising activity for scholarships and other public service programs sponsored by the Talladega County Alumnae Chapter.

This year’s Jabberwock winners were: 2017 Little Miss Jabberwock Alivia Bruno, 2017 Little Miss Crimson and Cream JaKeria Wilson and 2017 Miss Jabberwock Moesha Brown.

The Talladega County Alumnae Chapter thanked everyone for their continued support.

About the “Jabberwock” 

The “Jabberwock” is an activity peculiar to Delta Sigma Theta.

The first Jabberwock was presented in 1925 in Boston by members of the Jota Chapter. The first Jabberwock was an immediate success, and the idea caught many other chapters of Delta Sigma Theta.

Today, Jabberwock is considered a Delta initiative, and many local communities eagerly anticipate the event.

Jabberwock funds are earmarked for scholarships to be given by sponsoring chapters to young women and men of promise and ability, and for public service projects.
