The Today's Girl Youth Organization will perform a community service benefiting The Hope for Tomorrow Foster Care and Adoption Agency on Saturday, April 4, 2009 at the San Saba Civic Center. The occasion will take place during the Heart of Texas Today's Girl Regional Pageant from 9:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The Today's Girls will be collecting toiletry items, new underwear, socks, and sleepwear for the foster children from birth thru 17 years of age. The public is invited to take part in this worthwhile event.
All participants in the Today's Girl Youth Organization are required to complete 8 hours of community service work each year and Today's Girl is a certifying organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award. Girls who perform at least 50 hours of community service activity are awarded the bronze award, and a silver and gold award is also available at various hour levels. Over 13,000 volunteer hours have been logged by Today's Girls. Girls who participate in the local preliminary will be eligible to attend the Texas State Today's Girl Finals, to be held June 11-15 at the Southfork Hotel in Plano. The national finals will be held in late July.
Girls between the ages of 0 and 18 are invited to become part of this organization in six different age divisions. The age divisions include Today's Baby (0-3), Today's Doll (4-6), Today's Miss (7-9), Today's Junior (10-12), Today's Teen (13-15), and Today's Girl (16-18). Girls compete in party dress/evening gown, casual wear, interview, beauty, and talent, not to exceed three minutes. The younger age divisions through age 6 are not required to present a talent. Participants can enter the beauty competition only if they have not yet developed a performance talent.
Today's Girl is a youth program for young ladies that provides guidance for the development of tomorrow's leaders. Our goal is to offer a positive environment which allows girls to develop poise, self-confidence and character. The Today's Girl Organization encourages a familial atmosphere and our participants are active in their communities, perform at various events and enjoy making new friends. Today's Girl is a scholarship-based program which encourages the development of talent, academic achievement, and awareness of the need to improve their social environment through community service. Over $5,000 in educational scholarships were awarded last year.
