On Saturday, April 8th, the Miss America Organization and its contestants will proudly volunteer in-service across the country, as we hold our third annual Miss America Serves event presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The impact of last year’s efforts succeeded in surpassing the previous year, as our state titleholders and contestants blanketed the country, touching lives everywhere with kindness and dedication. Those efforts made a significant difference to the people residing in our cities and towns across the country, while raising funds to continue the compassionate work of CMN Hospitals. And, as we recognize and acknowledge that success, this year we are determined to increase that commitment to the children the CMN Hospitals serve.
During this Miss America Serves we are challenging all our states to fully participate, and help us reach a new goal, by pledging to raise a minimum of $5,000 per state. If every state could rally all their contestants -- at the Miss and the MAOTeen level -- to form teams to showcase the Miss America spirit of service and giving, it would allow us to demonstrate our dedication to this commitment.
The event became the weeks social media celebrity once again and we plan to recreate that momentum on a larger scale. This form will allow us to inform our media outlets in advance and promote your state and contestants in their individual and team projects. Whether you plan to hold various volunteer activities throughout your state or focus on one area of service, please note the activity. We understand that your event information may not be finalized, however, we need to present as much information and relevant details you have available to date for potential media opportunities.
We'd love to showcase any personal stories and/or experiences your contestants can share, as well. Please check the box indicated and upload a brief summary of their connection to CMN Hospitals and the children (multiple files can be uploaded, if needed).
We are also planning to showcase the state titleholders in MAS videos to be posted on various social media sites. These mini promos can be up to 60 seconds where the titleholder highlights her project and state involvement, while directing the viewer to the MAS donor site page to join or create a team. The area to upload is directly below the personal stories area.
Once the form is completed and sent, the system will automatically forward a receipt acknowledgement along with a copy of your submission.
