Best All Around

I'm such a proud mama!

My sweet girl, Malia, won an award today! We spent a few hours at a local high school where 104 youth (grades Kindergarten through 12th grade) and 20 adults were honored for being "the best all around." The awards program & ceremony was sponsored by our city's Parks & Recreation department and the Youth Opportunities Office and it was such an amazing production! They had a carnival and all sorts of fun, food & games for the kids to enjoy.

Best of all, the Mayor and many special people took time out of their day to honor the children & adults who make a difference in our communities and my daughter was one of them...so special! Malia was tickled pink that she got to "meet" the Mayor and shake his hand!

From the nomination form:
The criteria for Virginia Beach’s Best All Around awards are based on the 40 Developmental Assets®, which are positive experiences and personal qualities that help young people grow up to be healthy, principled and caring adults. A list of the Assets can be found on the nominations form and a more detailed description at:
