The Local/At-Large experience is a bite-sized preview of our program.
IT IS FREE TO PARTICIPATE.
The At-Large format is a streamlined experience designed to introduce you to DYW and advance more young woman toward the State Finals experience and more scholarship opportunities! Throughout that day, you will be evaluated on your own merit in the same five categories that are judged at the state and national programs. These categories can be found under ‘Qualifying Criteria’ on the What Is DYW page.
Applications for the class of 2021 and beyond are OPEN!
Apply for your local program, or under “At-Large”.
