The Miss America Social Impact Initiative (SII) is each titleholder’s unique way of connecting to a broader audience during her year of service. How one effectively makes an impact is another matter. Each Initiative has different messages and goals so there is not one easy formula for all! However, there is a level of dedication to the cause you chose to advocate for that will make all the difference in the world. Simply stated, to have a impactful SII, you should live it every day and make it a part of your life.
3 Simple Steps to Live Your Social Impact Initiative Every Day

3. Every day thereafter: Do one thing, big or small, every day for that impact.
One day you could develop a 20 minute speech on your initiative. This will help you articulate it throughout your year. One day you could make plans to run a social media campaign. One day you could spend an hour researching your initiative; contact an organization to have you speak; have a good conversation with someone, even a friend, about your impact and what they can do to be a part of it. How about starting a blog? Another day you could create a logo for your initiative. Even posting photos that show you in the community with your impact can make a difference! The possibilities are endless.
