It is an exciting time of year for Distinguished Young Women!! On Sunday, June 17, we welcomed 50 of the nation’s most accomplished young women to Mobile, Alabama for the 55th Distinguished Young Women National Finals. For the next two weeks, the participants (one from each state) will take part in a variety of activities in and around the Port City including team building, community service and rehearsals for the National Finals production. The Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2012 will be named on Saturday, June 30, 2012.
