At the NAM National Pageant girls have the opportunity to turn in submission for the "Golden Achievement in Service" award.  This is basically the ultimate award for community service.  Every single contestant is required to perform a minimum of 4 hours community service in order to compete at Nationals, however, some girls go WAY above and beyond!!

Here is a video from Victoria Johnson out in California.  Here is a quick note about the event in her words - great work Victoria!!

The Santa Fe Springs, California Relay for Life, Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, takes place every September. This is an overnight team event to raise awareness of cancer while simultaneously raising funds to help in the search for a cure. Each team member is asked to commit to raising at least $100.00 in donations and taking their turn walking around the track throughout the 24 hour event. This event is full of fun and is a great opportunity for me and my family to serve our community

As a relay for life team we have been able to raise between $8000.00 and $14,000.00 yearly in donations during our Santa Fe Springs Relay. This September 28, 2012 will be the eighth year I have participated in the American Cancer Society California Relay for Life and have been asked to be their feature speaker at the opening of the relay. My commitment to community service is something my father has instilled in me through his community service and volunteer work with many organizations. He also has given the gift of life as a bone marrow donor this year, and shown me the true meaning of service to others.
