The Story

Pre-Teen was founded in 1990 for the purpose of recognizing young ladies 7-12 years of age with high academic rankings, outstanding personal achievements, school activities and volunteer service participation, leadership abilities, sports accomplishments and creative talents.Since its inception, over 100,000 bright and gifted young ladies have participated in the program nationwide and the program has awarded over $1,500,000 in Educational Savings Bonds, Scholarships and Awards. In addition, the program has donated over $425,000 to its national charity, The Shriners Hospitals for Children headquartered in Tampa, Florida.
Karli has always made us proud with her mostly straight 'A's. Most of her weekly test she comes home with %100 or better!. We really try to reward her as much as we can. I think what makes her fill with pride is when she hears how proud WE are of her. I always ask her, "how do these grades and awards make you feel" she responds, "Very happy and proud of myself". As a parent its wonderful to actually see your child having a good self esteem, and a general really good feeling about her academics. They are just as important for her as they are to us. When she was hospitalized for a week she really missed school. So she tried to make her own school day. She had quite a few books to read, she would participate in the hospitals art hour. She was estatic when she was finaly well enough to return to school. :) Its one thing to know how remarkable your own child is...but to have a state wide program select her to go straight to being a finalist, the feeling is indescribable. Karli herself is very excited! She planning her competitions,dances,outfits,interview topics,etc. In her mind she's going to be there and she's going to win that $4000.00! Reality is we really need help to get her there. This is once in a lifetime and we really want her to be there. Thats why we are asking for sponsors, and support from family and friends. Please, a little bit from many people WILL help out! The more support Karli knows she has the more confidence she has in herself!
Thankyou, Shannon

We so much appreciate those who found it in their heart to give! We have now gotten enough for the entry fee. Karli is also competing in TWO other optional events. A talent competition in which she will be dancing. The other is a Louisiana Costume competition. Each additional competition have added entry fees at $50 for each. For the dance we need to find a choreographer and pay. We also need a costume and props for the talent portion. Fortunately we have a probable costume for the La representation costume portion. Theres still a need for support and donations guys. If you havent yet, or heck if u wanna give again WE could really use all that we can get. Y'all have been wonderful so far! It doesn't have to be some big amount at all, with a bunch of people giving just $5 or even $1 would really would do so much for us. Please consider giving, you arent just supporting Karli you are also supporting an amazing charity, Shriners Hospitals for Children. Thanks
