From Miss America's Outstanding Teen: Caitlin’s Closet Challenge!

I have to say, I am very impressed with the email communication I get from Miss America's Outstanding Teen Organization; I'm going to have to double check that I'm on the same type of list from Miss America...

Caitlin’s Closet Challenge!

Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Caitlin Brunell needs your help. She’s challenging all the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen State Representatives to clean out their closets!!

Caitlin’s Closet, a non-profit organization that collects gently used special occasion dresses and distributes them to prom-hopefuls, is hosting a Dress Drive at the Miss America Pageant. Every State Representative that brings gowns that equals 10 points receives a prize and the titleholder who accumulates the most points will win a $250 scholarship and her state organization wins a $250 scholarship to use at the state pageant in that teen's name!

How do you get Points?
* Dresses size 0-10 are worth 1 point
* Dresses size 12 and over are worth 1.5 points (dress sizes 12 and up go first at Caitlin Closet Events!)

Where do I turn them in?
There will be a drop off box set up at the Miss America Communication center in the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. Each teen or state director (if the teen can’t make it to Vegas) should bring all dresses to the drop off box before 10am on Saturday January 26, 2008. Please make sure they are packaged together and clearly marked with your state and teens name. The winner will be announced at the ED meeting on Saturday. Let’s help Caitlin fill her closet so she can host events across the country this year!

I've sent an email to see if Ohio would like to aggressively pursue this challenge.

I also received this beautiful email on the 24th:
