Distinguished Young Women of York County Scholarship Program

May 21, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Distinguished Young Women is a nationwide scholarship program that has successfully opened the door of opportunity for young women since its beginning in 1958. It is the oldest and largest scholarship program for high school girls in the United States.

The program recognizes and rewards outstanding students for their accomplishments with scholarship dollars. This scholarship program includes the following five areas of competition:

Academic Achievement, Interview, Talent, Fitness and Self Expression.

This program places an emphasis on excellence and rewards young women for their academic achievements. Participants are leaders in their school and community, as well as role models for all youth. In addition to the scholarships awarded, the program serves as a preparation and learning experience for college and careers.

CGA Law Firm is awarding the “Be Your Best Self” Award to the Distinguished Young Woman who writes the essay that best answers the question: “What does it mean to be your Best Self?” Attorney Haley Rohrbaugh will be presenting the award at this year’s Program; she has previously coached and mentored girls in the Distinguished Young Women program.
