Meg squeezes the air from my lungs as she embraces me tighter. Her hair is gathered in a sleek braid along the side of her face, her makeup glows on her skin, and her accessories sparkle under the pot lights. All of it compliments her bright, turquoise gown and all of it is free of charge! After repeatedly thanking me for the gratis pampering session, makeover, and shopping spree, Meg mentions how costly the final year of high school including prom can be, especially for an unemployed teenager. I am continuously seeking new and creative contest ideas like this one to relieve some of the financial burdens of those within our community. Each time the mall gives back to our youth, it is our opportunity to prove their voices are heard and empower the future of Scarborough.
