High school students with an eye for fashion can share their skills in a district-wide contest! Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee and Martin Luther King High School have teamed up to present the first annual istyled.me High School Fashion Challenge. A community-based fundraiser, istyled.me is open to all high school students in the greater Nashville area. The challenge is to purchase clothing at any local Goodwill store and style it to make a chic and hip outfit. Then students register at www.istyled.me and upload a photo of their outfit to the istyled.me photo wall. Site visitors will vote for their favorite look. Students with the most votes will walk in the Runway Show at Rocketown, Thursday, March 8, where a panel of celebrity judges will choose winners in three fashion categories.
All proceeds from the event go to support academic and arts programs at MLK Academic Magnet, but a cash prize will also go to each of the winners’ schools. There will be other prizes for the winners of each category as well as many great door prizes and random give-aways.
Voting concludes at midnight Saturday, Feb. 25!
Bailey STEM Magnet Middle, West End IB World School, and Whites Creek High School will be vying for the title of Music City's "BEST" this weekend. The schools have teams selected to participate in an annual robotics competition that kicks off this Saturday, Sept. 17, at David Lipscomb University.
The six-week competition is designed to encourage students to think about careers in science, technology and engineering. Teams will spend the next month and half working on their robots. They will reconvene later this fall for a final showdown. The program is sponsored by the local non-profit BEST and David Lipscomb University. Good luck!
