Distinguished Young Women is excited to present the fifth annual National Be Your Best Self Week, a nationwide outreach effort by program participants to spread the Be Your Best Self message to as many young people as possible during one week each year. Distinguished Young Women participants at all levels (local, state and national) will visit groups of children in their communities to share the Be Your Best Self program and encourage young people to commit to being their best selves by signing Be Your Best Self pledge cards.
After four successful years, the fifth annual National Be Your Best Self Week is set for April 22-26. Distinguished Young Women across the country will set out to impact the lives of thousands of young people and teach them what it means to Be Your Best Self!
For the third year, Distinguished Young Women will be awarding a $500 scholarship to one young woman who presented the Be Your Best Self program during National BYBS Week.
The competition for the Distinguished Outreach Award is open to any young woman who has participated in a Distinguished Young Women program at the local, at-large or state level (excludes state winners), who participates in National BYBS Week, and who will graduate from high school in 2013. The winner of the $500 Distinguished Outreach Award will be announced at National Finals in June in Mobile, AL. Click here for award requirements and deadlines.
