The YouthWorks High School Pageants are fundraising programs that help support children's healthcare in the Yakima Valley. Participating high schools organize a non-traditional pageant for boys. Contestants are judged in a number of categories, including creativity, faculty review, and individual fund raising. The school's contribution is a result of contestant fundraising, admission to the pageant, as well as other events held throughout the school year.
The program is a student run and organized philanthropy project to raise money and awareness for children with special health care needs. Since the funds stay local, the students see the positive effects of their efforts and walk away knowing that they can play a part in making their hometown a better place to live.
There are no tax dollars used to support this program. This program is funded by The Memorial Foundation and Children's Miracle Network local and national sponsors.
The success and enthusiasm of local high school students giving back to their community turns into an inspiring experience that allows students to work together for a common cause. TEENS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
