Nina Pleshe, the campaign coordinator, said the campaign rewards girls for spreading the message of kindness.

"The Kindness Campaign is a way to recognize girls in high school who are doing everyday kindness and also the bigger things. Some of them have gone on mission trips and started fund drives," Pleshe said.

The girls were pampered with hair and make-up, followed by a photo shoot where they posed in beautiful gowns from Pleshe’s Nina Brooke Shop. They were selected based on the stories they shared of how they have helped others.

Savannah Oseland, a student and kindness campaign ambassador, said volunteering at different places has opened her eyes.

"I was volunteering in the Soup Kitchen and I see people in our area that don't have a lot. Seeing that, it makes you think, wow I take for granted everything I have. So it's nice just to give back," Oseland said.

Michaela Stram, a student and kindness campaign ambassador, said she enjoys giving back to others.

"With my student council at my school, we do homeless shelter things. We do pennies for patients. We make blankets for people in foster care and in the homeless shelter. It’s just a great thing. I like the feeling I get when I help people," Stram said.

Stram is not only a super student, she’s also a super daughter who has been helping her mom who was diagnosed with breast cancer last fall. Stram is going on a mission trip in the summer.

"I just try to be nice to everybody. I hope that everybody with that kindness also feels that they can be nice in return. I hope that every small act of kindness makes someone's day," Stram said.

The girls' stories and photos will be shared on social media where they’ll compete for a final grand prize. Whoever has the most votes, shares, and likes, will be the winner of a prom dress.

It’s the third year the Kindness Campaign has given back to girls who help their community.

"Girls in high school are making a difference. They're doing it every day in small ways and they're also doing it in larger ways. That difference is being made all the time. It's a way of recognizing that, and encouraging others to do the same," Pleshe said.
