Pinwheels for Prevention Project

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Donations

Miss South Carolina Ad Page & Named Sponsor Programs







Prevent Child Abuse America designated the pinwheel as the national symbol for child abuse prevention. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment and reminder of the safe and happy childhoods we want for all children. Throughout the month of April (Child Abuse Prevention Month), we honor the children facing these struggles by planting pinwheel gardens in public places. This is a unique opportunity to spread awareness and spark conversations so that members of our community can learn more about the effects of child abuse and how they can help to support meaningful change.  

Proceeds for this program benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, SuziStands4Kids, Children’s Trust of South Carolina and the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization. If you are interested in purchasing a pinwheel garden complete the order form provided prior to April 1, 2017. If you would like to pay by cash or check, contact me directly and I will be more than willing to accommodate.

Gardens can be mailed to you for self set up or delivered personally to be set up by Miss Columbia and/or her Palmetto Princesses. Many organizations choose to make an event out of planting the gardens. For example: this is a perfect activity for teachers to take an opportunity to discuss the importance of community service!

Children's Miracle

Network Hospitals

The Miss America Organization has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to raise funds and awareness for children’s hospitals throughout the United States. Each new Miss America becomes the national goodwill ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, speaking on behalf of kids treated at children’s hospitals and raising awareness around the country. It’s just another way the Miss America Organization helps young women leave a legacy of service, scholarship, and support. Supporting children’s hospitals is a community effort and as a local ambassador, I need your help. Because funds donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals stay in the community, when you donate you’re helping kids near you—maybe even the children in your own life.  The designated hospital for Miss Columbia is Palmetto Health Children's Hospital.

The money I raise will help save children’s lives & a portion will also go to support the Miss America Scholarship Fund. These funds touch the lives of sick & injured children by paying for things insurance items will not cover like the Beads of Courage Program, special equipment, art supplies, toys and child specialists to help keep children happy and brave during their hospital stay. Keep an eye on social media as well as the events page so that you don't miss your chance to attend one of Miss Columbia's CMN miracle events! If you would like to partner with Miss Columbia for a CMNH fundraising event contact her directly at Common events include profit shares with restaurants, auctions and t-shirt sales among many others. Click the donation button below to see a list of items you can purchase to help your local hospital give more miracles! You can also donate directly to CMN via this link!

Meet South Carolina's

Miracle Child



Medical University of South Carolina Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital

Zion can capture attention with his trademark smile. With a constantly positive attitude — even when in excruciating pain from the sickle cell disease he bravely battles — he lights up the room with his warm personality.

Affectionately known by his friends and neighbors as “the Mayor,” Zion experiences ongoing episodes of sickle cell crisis, causing him to be hospitalized for IV pain management and IV fluids. It’s while he is undergoing these treatments that his true colors show through the most. The hospital staff and fellow patients often remark how his optimistic attitude rarely waivers.

Zion has a service-focused heart, finding joy through supporting his hospital’s fundraisers and going door-to-door in his neighborhood, in search of someone needing help with chores so he can donate his time.

Zion knows this is a life-long condition and works to make the best of it, armed with a better perspective than most on where true happiness begins.

CMN Hospitals donations support the pediatric cancer and blood disorders program for recruitment of top physicians, while also supporting research that benefits Zion and enhances his treatment plans.

    Ad Page Program


    Full Page Black and White

    Full Page Color

    Sponsored ad pages are a great way for Miss South Carolina contestants to share their story as well as more about the community that supports them. Miss America rules only allocate 9 1/2 minutes to speak with the judges in a press conference style personal interview. Even with onstage competition a contestant only has about 15 minutes to convince a group of strangers she can do the job. Seeing as it's almost impossible to learn everything about someone in that amount of time, the judge's panel often uses these pages to get to know a young woman better when deciding whether or not she is ready to take on the immense role of Miss South Carolina and represent well at the Miss America Pageant.

    I enjoy working with my sponsors one on one to design creative pages that highlight mutual beliefs, important ideas or details of my story that relate to that sponsor. I love hearing what members of my community want to see in their Miss South Carolina & being challenged to uphold those qualities that have led individuals to support me on this journey. 


    • A successful business woman from my hometown once sponsored a page with a "women supporting women" theme.

    • A close family friend who played a large role in helping me to grow my faith sponsored a page featuring one of our favorite bible verses.


    *In addition to an ad page in the Miss SC program book, this sponsorship will include “sponsor spotlights” on my Facebook page and website. Partial trade outs are negotiable for businesses offering services that aid in pageant preparation. Multiple businesses have to opportunity collaborate by contributing to one “community page".
