Brittany Clough

Chilliwack teen wears a new crown

Chilliwack high school student Brittany Clough won the title of Miss Teen Fraser Valley World 2013.

Chilliwack dynamo Brittany Clough has added one more accomplishment to her long list: she won the title of Miss Teen Fraser Valley World 2013 recently, and is now volunteering in the community at an even greater pace.

Since crowned, GW Graham Secondary School senior Clough has taken full advantage of her local celebrity to appear at many schools and events as a volunteer and motivational speaker.

“I’m not volunteering because the pageant says I have to. I’m volunteering because I love to, and having the title simply makes it easier to book volunteering opportunities… Also the crown is a big hit with the kids!” Clough said in a release.

The straight-A student has already logged over 1,000 volunteer hours at her school’s student council, and Key Club, as well as with community groups.

Made possible by her title, Clough is organizing a massive community scavenger hunt as a fundraiser for Free the Children on Saturday, May 11. People from Chilliwack will be pitted against those from Abbotsford in a fast hunt to rescue local kids from a metaphorical “cage.” Participants will race from one local business to another to complete a set list of tasks and collect certain items.

Recently Clough orchestrated the “Beautiful, You” Dove Challenge in February. The event brought together over 60 high school girls in a challenge to avoid makeup and hair products for one week. The girls raised $1,300 for Dove Foundation.

Clough loves performing, and starting April 2, she will be starring as Lucy in GW Graham’s production of “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.” She is a regular member at Chilliwack Academy of Music and Chilliwack School of Performing Arts.

“If anyone has any community events that they want me to volunteer or appear at, I would love to help out,” says Clough.

Clough is quietly looking for sponsors for her July trip to Toronto to compete for Miss Teen Canada World.
