Distinguished Young Women of California is part of a national scholarship program that promotes and rewards scholarship, leadership and talent in young women.

College scholarships are awarded at the state level ($30,000 last year) and millions in college-granted scholarships are available ($1 billion nationally). And one representative will advance to the national program in Mobile, Alabama where they give away over $100,000 in cash tuition scholarships.

And it’s FREE to participate!

YOU CAN:

  • Make new friends from around the state
  • Participate in workshops on interviewing, public speaking and more
  • Have fun putting on a showcase of your achievements
  • PLUS help pay for your college education!

You must be a junior in high school to participate. Sign up today so you don’t miss out on this life-changing experience!
