HELP of Southern Nevada is a program that offers help to those in need during the holidays through programs such as Adopt-A-Family, Turkey-A-Thon and a toy drive.  These programs give assistance through donating over 1,200 turkeys and gifts to over 19,000 children.  The only thing that makes this program successful is the community on Southern Nevada, including the 2014 Nevada Jr. Teen, Kailyn Domingo.  She adopted a family of two little girls and bought them toys, shoes, clothes, and even a bike!  Thanks for making the holidays great for this family!

Illinois Queens Help Out at Lansing Food Pantry

On December 30th, some of the Illinois queens spent their morning helping out at the Lansing Food Pantry located in Lansing, Illinois.  The girls were asked to assist in handing out food and other necessities to those in need in the local area.  In attendance were National American Miss Jr. Pre-Teen, Tatum Pearlman, National American Miss Illinois Pre-Teen, Brianna Lewis, National Cover Girl, Brianna Jackson, and National American Miss Illinois, Carolina Barrera. The girls reported that what they loved most about this outing was being able to see the people they were assisting and helping to put a smile on the faces of others during this holiday season. 

The Lansing Community Food Pantry is a partner with the Greater Chicago Food Depository.  Support comes from local businesses, organizations, churches, schools, and individual donations of money and food.  People in need can come twice a month to receive non-perishable food, choices of meat, fresh fruit, vegetables, margarine and milk. Clients may also choose other non-food items.

Illinois Pre-Teen Queen Donates Toys to Local Church

During the month of December our Miss Illinois Pre-Teen, Brianna Lewis, collected toys to help her church, All Nations Community Church, continue to provide outreach and help for needy families during the holiday season.  Brianna put out the call for toys just 10 days before the collection deadline, and was very pleased with the response she received.  She received many donations from family and was so thrilled to also get donations from her sister queen, National American Miss Jr. Pre-Teen, Tatum Pearlman and her family.  The toys were delivered on December 17th and were more than enough to help the church reach their goal.

Miah Green Wins Awards for Volunteering

Volunteering is always such a big part of the title for our queens.  This holds true for Miah Green, the Utah Jr. Pre-Teen.  While every girl wants a national title, Miah was gunning for the Golden Achievement in Service Award, and she got it!  She works so hard in her community and in her mind, that was one of the biggest titles of the week.  This next May, she will also be receiving the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for the second time.  Before leaving for nationals, Miah made a stop at the Ronald McDonald House with a donation of 70,000 pop tabs.  It was definitely a sight to see!  The plastic tote was SO heavy, IT BROKE!  Great job Miah!  We look forward to seeing what you do next.

The Nevada and Utah Queens Focus One Weekend on Service!

First up on the list of weekend events was at the Las Vegas Farm, known simply as THE FARM.  It offers visitors an opportunity to get up close and personal with many different animals, including chickens, peacocks, ducks, a goose, turkeys, goats, pigs, horses, cows, a mule, a llama, rabbits, cats, tortoises and more. While at the farm the girls were in charge of helping in the farmers' market, “guarding the pig” from leaving the barn, and making sure people didn't open cages while the farmers were at lunch. The Farm currently houses 400 rescue animals on its 5 acres and the girls had a blast helping do farm work, except Alyssa’s dad who happened to get bit by a bull!

Next up was Opportunity Village, which is a not-for-profit organization that serves people in the Southern Nevada community with intellectual disabilities. Opportunity Village helps people with severe intellectual and related disabilities through vocational training, community employment, day services, advocacy, arts and social recreation, citizens with severe disabilities to find new friends, realize future career paths, seek independence and community integration and unleash creative passions.

More than just a charity, Opportunity Village operates three employment training center campuses and a Thrift Store in Southern Nevada.  The entire community is affected by the organization as businesses not only contract with Opportunity Village to fulfill assembly and packaging, mass mailings and other business to business services, but numerous companies and organizations hire clients as regular employees.

This serviced touched home a little more with Alyssa, the Princess queen, because she is currently volunteering at the Hartvigsen Special Needs school after school community ed program. She is beginning to know and love the special needs world.
The girls rounded out the weekend with the Trunk or Trot event.  This was a fun family 5k where the girls got to help, play games, and take lots of photos with people there. The Princess queen even got to feed a peacock.  Afterward, all the girls shopped at the craft booths together and had some great bonding time.

Minnesota Jr. Pre-Teen holds "Inner Beauty Pageant"

Recently, 9 year old Miss Minnesota Jr. Pre Teen Chloe Russo went to the St. Paul Boys and Girls Club to deliver school supplies. The girls there were SOOO excited to see her and asked to try on her crown and even took pictures with the crown. The girls really wanted to know how they could enter the pageant. Chloe tried to answer everyone’s questions, but heard one little girl say “My Dad doesn’t have even $10.” On the way home, Chloe said “Why can’t we have a free pageant for them?” After calling the Boy’s and Girls Club with the idea, the program director was thrilled that their “Smart Girls” (ages 6-13 years old) would have a chance to build their confidence. Chloe named it “The Inner Beauty Pageant” because it was about who the girls were, not how they looked!

Chloe asked her friends and people on Facebook for donations of crowns, and she ordered plain pink banners which she painted with stencils to say “Miss Minnesota” for each girl. She collected enough crowns and donated a few of her own trophies for prizes and created awards like “Miss Sassafrass” for Modeling award, “Miss Personality,” “Most Courageous,” etc.

Chloe went back the next week and taught the girls how to introduce themselves, had them fill out an application with basic questions about themselves and taught them the basic modeling steps and marks. The girls were so excited!

The next week, the first “Inner Beauty Pageant” was held with 16 girls participating. Chloe’s Fellow NAM queens were judges along with Mrs. Minnesota America and the girls were judged on interview, modeling and introduction. In the interview one girl was asked “Why do you want to win the pageant?” Her response was “I want to feel special." My mom pays more attention to my 2 brothers so maybe if I won, she would see I was special.” At the end of the pageant, all of the girls were crowned and happy--mothers said how much it helped their daughters’ self confidence and thanked Chloe for having it. It was so much fun to see the girls happy and proud of themselves! This is the power of the crown!
