While participating in the Distinguished Young Women of Minnesota programs at the At-Large and State levels, participants have opportunities to display their talents, improve their public speaking and interview skills, share their personality, and be recognized for their outstanding achievements.
If you are selected to advance to the Minnesota State Finals, you will learn and practice life skills, meet girls from around the state, and be challenged to Be Your Best Self (our national outreach program). This is typically a three to four day program held in the fall. Past state classes have stayed with host families in the Twin Cities area while touring theaters, meeting with legislators at the State Capitol building, shadowing various careers, and even participating in a free boxing class! For the DYWMN Class of 2019, we awarded over $2,000 in cash scholarships, and our DYWMN for 2018, Gianna Rucki, is currently taking advantage of a full-tuition scholarship to the University of Alabama.
Applications for the class of 2021 and beyond are OPEN!
Apply for your local program, or under “At-Large”.
