Because there are no sponsors for a local program, High School Junior girls, class of 2019 and who live in Calvert County are eligible to participate in the “At-Large” Program to be held on March 4, 2018 from 9-4pm at McDaniel College, Alumni Hall, 2 College Hill, Westminster,MD. Please RSVP by Feb 1 if you plan to participate at Maryland@DistinguishedYW.org
- Applicants must complete their online registration at: www.distinguishedyw.org no later than February 1, 2018.
- Once you are pre-register, a representative will call you to discuss the program and requirements. Once you commit verbally, she will have the national office send you a password to go into the site to complete your online registration. Note it will take some time to complete the online registration, so please do not wait until the due date to do this.
- The Academic Forms and Instructions are to be emailed to your guidance counselor by February 1. Please follow up with them to insure they are completed in full and that they email them to us by February 15 at: Maryland@DistinguishedYW.orgNote that there are NO FEES to participate in a local or At-large program. However, if you are in an At-Large Program and you are selected to advance to the state competition, you will be required to find a sponsor to cover a $350 fee.
- You will be notified within two weeks of the at-large program if you are invited to advance and you will have 10 days to commit or decline the offer to participate. The sponsor fee will be due by May 1, 2018. The state committee is not responsible for raising these funds, but will assist you in providing promotional sponsor materials to share and giving you guidance in locating a sponsor. The sponsorship fee is tax deductible as we are a 501-C-3 non profit organization and the donation will go to scholarships.
