Local Teen Participates in National Scholarship Competition
This week marks the start of competition for Aubrianne Crosby, the Cowley, WY teen competing in the 63rd Distinguished Young Women National Finals.
Crosby, along with 49 other state representatives, has begun completing the competition through a series of video submissions and video conference calls.
The program will be broadcast for free on June 25, 26 and 27 on DistinguishedYW.org in place of the in-person showcases.
The video submissions will be compiled, and the three-night event is to be hosted by Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2019 Dora Guo.
Each night scholarships will be awarded and on Saturday, June 27, eight finalists will be selected from the group of 50 young women. One of these eight will be selected to represent the program as the Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2020. In total, $125,000 in college scholarships will be awarded to the Class of 2020.
