If you would like to be a model in the event's fashion show, send your name, phone, and email address to: melissa.smith@greensboro-nc.gov. Or, provide your contact information on your registration form.

After attending all of the HOW Workshops, you will be given a special invitation (VIP Ticket)* to attend the HOW Career Fair!
