My name is Shelby Ann Bellah and I am currently a sophomore at Calloway County High School, in Murray, KY, where I participate in sports, FFA, Beta Club, and student government. Recently, I was honored with the title of Miss Kentucky High School America 2014. With this title, I will make a minimum of two appearances each month promoting the national platform entitled, "The Crown C.A.R.E.S." (Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools). This platform focuses on Bullying Prevention. In particular, the focus is on bringing awareness to children in schools regarding the definition and signs of inappropriate behaviors and bullying. We define bullying as intentional, repetitive, and an imbalance of power.

During my time as Miss Kentucky High School, I will visit schools to read an age appropriate children's book to the class and address areas of concern, such as respect, honesty, kindness, friendship, compassion, and safe boundaries. The platform also helps us to address signs of bullying and harassment behaviors based on best practices in bullying and harassment prevention, school core values, and healthy school behaviors.

Additionally, the next step on this journey for me is to compete in July for the title of Miss High School America. While there are incentives for me if I win (scholarship money and an opportunity to participate in a People-to-People International Study tour), I would also be provided an opportunity to continue speaking on behalf of The Crown C.A.R.E.S. platform to a broader audience. This journey is not without cost. My parents are helping me significantly, but I am also asking for assistance from those who may see value in this program, as well as who may want to have their organization's name featured in an ad for the national pageant's program. Please know that, while my final goal is $1,200, I am hoping you can provide sponsorship in any amount you deem appropriate. I hope to find approximately 24 individuals or organizations who can spare $50 in their budgets.
