The two young women plan to leave Sunday and stay with their host families in Atlanta before the program kicks off in Marietta Friday, July 26. They will join 21 participants from nine other local programs from across the state who will vie to become the DYW of Georgia and a share of more than $130,000 in cash scholarships. A panel of judges will then select one representative to advance to the annual National Finals competition held in Mobile, Ala. in June for the opportunity to become the DYW of America. DYW is a national scholarship program that promotes and rewards scholarship, leadership and talent in young women.
We wish the best of luck to our fantastic participants. I am very proud of Julia and Kathryn and know they will represent Milledgeville and Baldwin County well,” Stone said. “Be your best self, ladies.”
