There is nothing we love more than seeing pageant girls do amazing thing inside their communities and across the planet. The Miss High School America Pageant recently gave its national titleholders the opportunity to give back in Jamaica.
About the trip
In an interview with Amanda Patterson, the President and Executive Director of the Miss High School America Pageant, she spoke about the trip her national titleholders were able to go on. Miss High School America 2016, Miss Jr. High School America 2016 and Miss Collegiate America 2016 were able to go to Jamaica from May 29 to June 2 of this year. (Cast your predictions now!)
During their trip, they spent some time with the children at Boscobel Primary School, a local village school. The girls worked with the children on projects, read to the students and spoke with them about the pageant’s national platform, BRAVE.
“Building Respect and Values for Everyone” is not only the system’s national platform, but it also serves as an anti-bullying campaign that the titleholders promote during their year of service. (Read: How to Promote Your Platform Through Community Service)
About the decision to work with this school
After experiencing learning conditions were worse than they had imagined, the titleholders and Patterson saw a need and knew they wanted to help. The Miss High School America Pageant is partnering with the Sandals Foundation to help support the Boscobel Primary School with school supplies.
This year, the titleholders will be doing fundraisers throughout the year and, with the help of the Sandals Foundation, will be shipping the supplies to the school. Hopefully, these efforts will help to better stock the school with supplies. (Read: How to Win Miss High School America)
This is definitely a great opportunity for the next titleholders to get involved and to give back to their communities and the rest of the planet. What a commendable effort for the Miss High School America Pageant, bravo!
