We tallied more than 1.8 million votes cast by EBONY.com visitors for the Queen of their choice. The results? The 10 Queens with the most votes not only represent their colleges and universities well, they also serve as great role models who are conscious of their communities, resolute in their beliefs, dedicated to their goals and committed to the importance of education. For the third year, we've taken these representatives of the HBCU royalty and transformed them into the Ultimate Queens, courtesy of our fabulous "glam squads," including stylist to the stars, Oscar James. Take a look at these exceptional young women. We think you will agree: They definitely can rule the world–and probably will!
