Mx. WashU is a charitable organization that selects 16 candidates every year to compete for the crown and title of Mx. WashU. As a part of the competition for the crown, these 5 candidates will fundraise as much as they can throughout the year to raise money for City Faces.
City Faces is a group that works with children, teenagers, and young adults living in public housing in inner St. Louis. Through the visual arts process, young people learn about problem solving, cooperation, self-evaluation, and long-term planning, while discovering talents they did not know they had and developing employable skills.
