Fort Smith Jeffreys Boys and Girls Club Kids Showcase

Fort Smith Because of Them, We Can Cultural Showcase

Jeffreys Boys and Girls Club will participate in a Cultural Showcase that will consist of 30-40 kids displaying Historical people from the past and present.

This Showcase will take place on Saturday, April 9 from 11-1pm at Jeffreys. Come participate and allow your kids to IMAGINE the POSSIBILITIES.

Kids will become a SUPERSTAR for a day! Let them dress up and become!
Youth ages 3 and up and some Adults too, will get a chance to model historical people from the past and present.

Children will dress up similar to characters such as George Washington Carver, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, President Barack Obama, Miley Cyrus, and more.
It will allow diversity in which all races of children will have a chance to participate.

Please have the picture of the person that your child is modeling to be emailed to Leora Jackson at This will allow us to project the picture on screen as the child walks the runaway.  You would wish to have your child dressed and matched closely to the picture that you send. Also, please send a short 3-5 sentence bio of that person to the email as well. If you can't send a bio, the coordinators will find a bio of that person.

During the fashion show, the MC will say, next we have Alisha Smith as Rosa Parks. The child will walk runaway and come to the mic and say, “My name is Rosa Parks. I am the mother of the Civil Rights Movement. (Each child is to give a one sentence statement or quote of their character) The MC will read a brief bio and then turn to Alisha and say, Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, Alisha Smith as Rosa Parks! Alisha will then say, “Because of Rosa Parks, I Can! Then she walks off stage. If the child does not wish to say anything, they don’t have to The MC will introduce the child as they walk back and forth and read the bio and child will bow and exit the stage.

We are very excited and can’t wait to have your child perform in honor of Historical Characters of the Past.
