The Junior League of Manatee County is searching for local teen girls (Junior or Senior in High School) to volunteer as teen commentators for the American Girl Fashion Show. Teen commentators play a very visible and important part of the show because they maintain the pace, momentum, and excitement of the program. The show takes place on a theatrical stage with lights, and in front of a large audience. It is essential that teen commentators are comfortable and enthusiastic while reading a lengthy script onstage. The script should be rehearsed, however memorization is not required. Being a teen commentator qualifies for community service hours.

The teen commentators have now been selected and notified.

The Junior League of Manatee County's American Girl Fashion Show has been fortunate to have inspiring female role models serve as celebrity hosts for our event. We will have a celebrity host at each show time, the 10:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., and 6 p.m. show times. JLMC chooses strong women in our community who have a passion for charity, service, and helping children in  need in our community. These women are also wonderful role models for the young girls in our community.
