(This must be submitted by Nov. 24). 2) Costume - Club must collaborate to create a costume that is representative of your club for the contestant to model. i. e. Film and Photography club could use photos or photo reels to make a dress/suit. 3) Talent - Talent of the club's choosing, contestant can pretty much do anything. Need a description of the talent turned in with a speech on November 24th. 4) Questions - Contestants will be asked questions similar to those in regular pageants. Some may be about the club, some may be about White Station, and some might be goofy - be prepared for anything. Ultimately, our goal is to raise awareness and funds for Muscular Dystrophy. We will give 100% of the profits to the Le Bonheur Muscular Dystrophy Association Clinic. If you would like to fund raise for our cause prior to the event, an award will be given to the club who raises the most. Otherwise, this is a great way to promote your club, any upcoming events , or spread the message your club is aiming to spread. It will be fun and silly, and prizes will be awarded in the end. ***When speech and talent are turned in on November 24th, let us know what music your contestant will walk to.

As social networking and online social interaction become more and more prevalent, cyber bullying becomes one of the most popular types of bullying that occurs between teens. About 80% of all high school students have encountered bullying online. About 35% of teens say they have actually been threatened with online violence. About half of all teens admit they have said something hurtful or mean to another teen online. Most admit they have done it more than once. The only way we can put a stop to this is if WE choose not to participate in it. Take a stand against bullying.
