An annual tradition at Steel Valley for many years, the Powder Puff King selection is a Student Government service project that raises funds for various charities. This year, the event raised $1,120.44 for The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Only junior and senior boys may participate, and the participant who brings in the largest donation is named Powder Puff King during halftime of the Powder Puff game. This year’s Powder Puff King is Silas Krupa who brought in $432.99 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation!
