STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -People packed Statesboro High School on Sunday for the 11th annual Frills by Scott Prom Preview show.

Scott Marchbanks started the show to showcase the latest prom fashions but also to give young girls from local high schools a chance to feel confident and walk the runway

All the proceeds from the event go towards the smart girl program of the Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch County and towards a $1,000 service scholarship to one senior girl.

Over the past 11 years, Frills has given away $15,000 in service scholarships. The girls must apply and show how they serve their community. This year's theme for the show was trailblazers. The models got to chose one person who influenced them. The trailblazers were recognized at the show.

“You know, it’s always fun for me because I chose things that are different to put in the show and really give these girls an opportunity to have some fun," said Scott Marchbanks, owner of Frills by Scott. "But it is more than that because at the end of the day with our store our mission centers around acceptance and we are going to accept each other. We are going to love each other. This is an opportunity for us to put into action what it is we say we do.”

2015 Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Olivia McMillan was even at the show as one of the featured performers.
