The Today’s Girl Youth Organization will perform a community service activity benefiting Isiah Thorp on Saturday, June 25, 2011 from 5PM – 8PM at the San Saba Civic Center. Isiah was injured in a terrible 4-wheeler accident, and was in intensive care for several days. He is facing more surgery in July. The Today’s Girls want to show their love and support by sponsoring a hamburger meal and concessions at the Search for the Stars Competition. Isiah’s little sister is the Today’s Girl Baby Queen. This event was scheduled for the May Pecan Capital Trades Day, but had to be postponed because the hamburger meal benefiting Robert Henry was schedule at the same time. The public is invited to come and enjoy the meal and stay for the Search for the Stars Competition.
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 14,000 volunteer hours were logged by Today’s Girls.
Girls between the ages of 0 and 18 are invited to compete 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.
