It’s that time of year again! Young Women in Excellence, a time where all the 12-18 year old girls from our church share what amazing projects/goals they’ve been working on all year long. Last year’s was a blast, I love the YWiE vintage theme that the Laurels (16-18 year old girls) came up with. I was in charge of this year’s theme and our president suggested an award show theme. My amazing adviser, Kristen, thought up the colors black, white & gold and we went from there. Here is the full layout, leave any questions in the comments section so we can address it all at once, hopefully the pictures speak for themselves. Keep in mind it was dark in the church gym so my apologies that they’re not as bright as I’d like them to be (;
Basically, the program was the girls coming up and receiving their award and saying what project they worked on. So it was an easy, stress free YWIE! We had the Laurel president conduct. After the intro (talking about how if you follow your path, you’ll have a bright future & honor in the next life-read the shoe printable for elaboration), we had a different woman introduce each value with a quick thought. So our YW president introduced “Faith” with a couple thoughts of her own. Then she called up each girl who had worked on their “Faith” value for their project. Then we had the old YW president introduce “Divine Nature” with some thoughts & called up the girls in that category and so on. When the girl was called, she walked the red carpet, did a cute curtsy/strike a pose, the said a fast “Thank you to my mom for helping me,” etc. It was a really laid back program from a leader point-of-view since the girls work was the main theme. It was fun to hear them talk about their individual projects. We had all the YW sing “Stand in Holy Places”, had a bishopric member share a thought then had the closing prayer. Easy easy!
