In partnership with Virginia ABC, Miss Virginia travels across Virginia to elementary schools spreading a message of health, wellness and prevention with students and teachers through the Miss Virginia School Tour.
At each Miss Virginia School Tour stop, students receive a copy of Virginia ABC’s educational Elementary Activity Workbook. The workbook encourages powerful connections when a teacher or parent shares the experience of completing the book with a child. This early communication sets the stage for a lifetime of promoting health and safety through being informed, approachable and a good leader.
During her visit, Miss Virginia provides a foundation and encouragement for young students to understand healthy choices. The Miss Virginia School Tour messaging aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning of Advocacy and Health Promotion, Essential Health Concepts and Healthy Decisions.
Through the Miss Virginia School Tour students will:
- Demonstrate knowledge of how to identify what is safe and healthy for their bodies.
- Learn what positive choices are and how to make them and how to say “no” when something is not healthy for their bodies.
- Learn what it means to be a leader in their community and among their friends.
- Be able to identify who is a trusted adult and understand the role they play in their lives.
