Nebraska Jr. Teen makes headlines Immediately after she's crowned

The crown hit her head and tears hit her cheeks - but just a few days after that she hit the headlines. Sarah Summers, the 2009 NAM Nebraska Jr. Teen has taken over Nebraska by storm by working closely with the charity's that mean the most to her, making appearances, and being spotlighted on the front page of numerous Nebraska newspapers including this one, the Papillion Times. 

In this 2 page, up-close article, Sarah talks about her involvement with the American Cancer Society and how she will be donating the books and bears from the Community Involvement Competition(10% of each girls score) to children with cancer.

Sarah is definitely a NAM girl-on-the go!

Congrats to Nebraska's Jr Teen! But, i'm confused after reading this. Breanne said that the 2nd page of the article talks about how Sarah will be donating the books and bears from the community involvement competition, which is 10% of the scoring. I thought the books and bears get turned in on pageant weekend in order to get the credit - were they supposed get donated to a cause instead??

All of the contestants are asked to donate books and/or bears pageant weekend for their 10% community involvement. The girls who become Queens that weekend then divide the books and bears amongst themselves and donate them to good causes. I think it's a great way to get the Queens involved in their community right after being crowned.
