Young Women in Public Affairs Award

Applications for the 2017 Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award are now available from the Zonta Club of Janesville by contacting: Linda Reinhardt, lreinhar@charter.net

The goal of the Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award Program is to encourage more young women to participate in public affairs by recognizing a young woman’s commitment to the volunteer sector, evidence of volunteer leadership achievements and a dedication to the empowerment of women.

Applicants are asked to reflect on their voluntary commitment to their school and to their community and the problems limiting the empowerment of women in their own country and worldwide. The Zonta International Young Women in Public Affairs Award Program looks to the young women of today for the leaders of tomorrow.

Applications are due to: Linda Reinhardt, lreinhar@charter.net by March 17, 2017. Applicants of age 16-19 on 1st April each year, living in a Zonta district/region, or a citizen of a Zonta country at the time of application are eligible to apply.

The Zonta Club of Janesville makes an award to an outstanding young woman in our area, and forwards her application for consideration for additional awards at the District and International levels.

The Zonta Club of Janesville is part of Zonta International, a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy. The Young Women in Public Affairs Award is one of many programs for women and girls sponsored by Zonta International. The Award is funded by voluntary contributions to the Zonta International Foundation YWPA Award Fund.
