Relay for Life Team Robbins held “Pageant Prep” Saturday, May 18, at the Carroll County Middle School. The day was dedicated to giving all girls the royal princess treatment. The girls received tips on make up and hair; self-confidence and self-esteem; walking, posing and poise tips; wardrobe tips; and etiquette lessons. They participated in mock interviews with public speaking advice. The girls also got their picture taken with pageant queens from across the state. All money raised benefited the Carroll County Relay for Life.
