Nineteen Washington high school seniors will be here at the end of the month to compete in the 2012-13 Distinguished Young Women scholarship program.
The young women arrive in Pullman on July 31 to begin practicing several stage routines that will highlight the competition 7 p.m. Aug. 4 at Washington State University’s Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum.
Danielle Kallaher, program co-chair, said each participant will perform a talent number and participate in fitness and self-expression routines during the evening program. The teens meet individually with a panel of judges earlier. More than $10,000 in college scholarships will be awarded.
The participants will stay with Pullman families several days while rehearsing for the on-stage program Saturday at the coliseum.
Tickets are available through TicketsWest outlets and at the door the evening of the program.
This is the 55th year of the scholarship program. Its goal is to emphasize education by providing scholarship opportunities to outstanding college-bound high school girls, and to encourage personal development in all young people, Kallaher said.
