Attn NoVA/DC/MD High School Students + Parents :: Prom Confidence Event + Giveaway on March 24th

On Saturday, March 24, local merchants and activists for young people will come together to make some prom dreams come true for teenagers in Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland. The group previously hosted makeovers with local teens, including the one featured in the video above of Nailah Phillips, a sophomore at Heritage HIgh School in Leesburg. Perhaps the best part about these makeovers is that the team bases its prom and homecoming events not only on making over the outside, but on reminding teens first, to see and appreciate their strengths, and second, to know that each is truly special.

Honeywell has awarded scholarships to 254 students from 30 countries and 30 U.S. states to attend the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy (HLCA) program from February 26 – March 9, 2012 at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Chankea Okmar, a Slver Spring resident who attends Montgomery Blair High School was the only Maryland student to be invited to the week-long program designed to build leadership skills.

This leadership program provides students with a unique opportunity to engage in sessions addressing current issues in science, technology and engineering (STEM).  The week-long program is designed to develop their capacities through hands on challenges and build their leadership skills.
