Black Light Dodge Ball

As Miss Teen International, I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel nationally promoting my platform, “Be a Volunteer and Make Your Mark Through Community Service.” I have had a blast spending time with my peers and encouraging them to get involved in their communities. There are so many fun and creative ways for young people to make a difference.

My high school sorority, Delta Beta Sigma’s Charity Season is underway to raise money for Wounded Warrior Project, our national charity this year. We recently held a Black Light Dodge Ball Tournament and it was probably my favorite fund raiser ever! We wanted to include as many people as possible so we had several age brackets beginning with 3rd through 6th grade and ending with 7th through 12th grade. It was so much fun. All of the participants were all decked out in their neon and were ready to Play Some Dodgeball for a Cause!


This is my little, Ashton.

We tried to look tough…. 


Apparently, I am not a very good dodger. 

We had so much support from the community. A local church donated the use of their gym, while another church donated the use of their black light equipment. We were guests on the morning radio show to promote the event and our local newspaper advertised for us leading up to the event at no charge and even came to the event to take photos. It is so great when EVERYONE comes together for a great cause!

We are the Omega Chapter of Delta Beta Sigma.

The 7th-12th grade participants. 

Choose a cause you’re passionate about and give back. Giving back is a great way to fulfill your community service requirements for school or clubs, build your resume, and make a difference in your community, so be creative and come up with unique and fun ways to get involved and “Make Your Mark Through Community Service.”
