Founded in 1958, Distinguished Young Women is a free program that encourages participants to reach their full individual potential. Our mission is to empower young women by providing over $1 billion in scholarship opportunities, connecting with a nationwide network of women, developing their self-confidence, and participating in our Life Skills Workshops that prepare them for success after high school. Previous Distinguished Young Women joined Joe on set with more information on the finals this year.

Each summer, 50 state representatives travel to Mobile, AL, to compete in the National Finals program. This year, over $150,000 in cash scholarships will be awarded during the three nights of showcases.
