Participants will be chosen based on the following criteria: academic excellence (2.75 GPA or higher), community service involvement, extracurricular activity involvement, and grade level.
The Fashion show will have three segments: Casual Wear, Business wear, and Formal Wear. Each segment will be followed by a short intermission where strategies and tips from the resource guide will be shared such as FAFSA priority deadlines, the importance of dressing for success, and essay writing.
During the fashion show, audience members will be able to purchase raffle tickets (3 for $5) for various gifts, donated from local businesses. Proceeds from the raffle will fund the Scholars Dollars Scholarship Raffle. One scholarship will be awarded to one of the participating models at the end of the show. Model participants will be required to sell a minimum of 5 tickets; by doing so, each participant will earn one raffle ticket. For every 10 tickets sold, students will earn one additional raffle ticket to be entered into the scholarship raffle.
