Today's Girl is an educational program for today's girl which provides guidance for the development of tomorrow's leaders. Our goal is to offer a positive environment that allows today's girls to develop poise, self-confidence and character, while developing tomorrow's leaders. Today's Girl is a scholarship based program which encourages the development of talent, academic achievement and an awareness of the need to improve their social environment through community service. To meet this quest, Today’s Girl sponsors pageants wherein each girl who wins a title, must participate in community service projects in order to qualify for a State Overall Title.
The Cleburne Area Preliminary is one of the numerous Today’s Girl Competitions held throughout the States of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and Florida. Today’s Girl has recently been accredited as one of the Presidential Points of Light Volunteer Organizations for the United States.
