Distinguished Young Women of Md. Scholarship established
To support high school women pursuing their educational goals, the Distinguished Young Women of Maryland Scholarship Fund has been established with the Community Foundation of Frederick County. The fund supports the mission of the Distinguished Young Women of Maryland program, part of a national scholarship program that promotes and rewards scholastic achievement, leadership, and talent in young women. Founded in 1958, Distinguished Young Women is the oldest scholarship program of its kind for high school women. Formerly named America’s Junior Miss, the program changed its name in 2010 to better reflect its mission. The program is based on the “Be Your Best Self” platform of encouraging high-achieving, college-bound women to be healthy, ambitious, involved, responsible and studious. The program combines the chance to receive college scholarships with life skills training to prepare young women for the world after high school. Each local and state program evaluates participants in scholastics, interview skills, talent, fitness and self-expression. The program is based in Frederick County. Donations can be made to the fund through a secure site at www.FrederickCountyGives.org/DYW. Checks can be mailed to The Community Foundation of Frederick County, 312 E. Church St., Frederick, MD 21701, with “Distinguished Young Women of Maryland Scholarship” noted in the memo line. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
