Check out this great panel discussion organized by 2 NH parents- March 11th at 7pm!
The pandemic has impacted the mental health of our youth in ways we are only beginning to imagine. If you are concerned with how the disruption, isolation and uncertainty has affected our children and adolescents, you are not alone.
Join our panel of experts who have experience working on the front lines of healthcare--learn from their knowledge and insights regarding how the pandemic is effecting the already rising levels of anxiety and depression in our youth. Learn how we can better understand the issues, identify stressors, discuss the risks, share solutions and discuss how we as a community can help.
Whether you are a parent, caregiver or concerned citizen, the more informed we are the better support we can provide as a community to support our youth.

Our Story

The Distinguished Young Women Scholarship Program aims to reward and recognize girls in their senior year of high school. Scholarships are awarded on both the state and national level. And remember, it is always free to enter!

The Distinguished Young Women Scholarship Program has five phases of competition:
25% Scholastic Derived from High school transcript & Standardized test scores
additionally if college courses have been completed the GPA is considered

25% Interview 10 minute interview with a panel of 5 judges

20% Talent 90 second talent presentation

15% Fitness Group Aerobic routine with an individual spot light feature

15% Self-Expression Public speaking via a question asked on stage

Scholarship awards are given to the young woman who earns the top score in each category as well as to second alternate, first alternate and, of course, the winner of the title of the Distinguished Young Woman of New Hampshire. Many in-kind college scholarships are also made available simply by entering and participating in this program!

By earning the title of the Distinguished Young Woman of New Hampshire, the winner earns the right to compete at the national level representing the Granite State at the Distinguished Young Women of America scholarship competition. There she will compete for cash and in-kind scholarships as well as meet 49 other Distinguished Young Women while having the experience of a lifetime.

Distinguished Young Women finals are held in Mobile, Alabama annually in June, where the program was founded. Filled with a rich history, the 50 Distinguished Young Women spend 2 weeks making appearances, practicing routines, and making unforgettable memories which culminates in 3 days of competition where the new Distinguished Young Women of America is chosen!

In addition, through our Life Skills program, which includes workshops and online resources, participants can learn skills like interviewing, public speaking, self-confidence building and much more. These skills not only prepare everyone for our program but also for the world after high school and college.
