Amarillo, TX - Wednesday night West Texas A and M's student counsel hosted the first ever "Mr. WT" contest to raise money for the fight against human trafficking and sex slavery.

The idea came in response to the book, The Road of Lost Innocence, by Somaly Mam, which every freshman was required to read. In efforts to help support readership as well as a good cause, student governorship launched the contest.

"I think its important that guys are willing to get out there, and show their support, and try to earn money," said Brandy Roberts, organizer of the "Mr. WT" contest.

Wednesday night's efforts raised nearly $600. All money will go toward "Somaly Mam Foundation", an international foundation founded by the author of the book that helps support the fight against human trafficking with a concentration in Cambodia.
