One of you has an opportunity to win between $1000 to $5000. Each year, the Zonta Club of Jacksonville offers the Young Women in Public Affairs Award to a local young woman in recognition of her leadership and volunteerism. All pre-university and pre-college female students ages 16 - 19 are encouraged to apply. Because Zonta International recognizes the international need for increased participation of women in public affairs at all levels, the Young Women in Public Affairs Award hopes to encourage young women to pursue careers in government, public policy, and community organizations.
The application can be downloaded directly from our website: www.zontajacksonville.com. Students must submit the application, essays, letters of recommendation, and certification of school enrollment to the Zonta Club of Jacksonville by March 1, 2011. The winner of the Jacksonville ’s $1000 award will go on to compete at the District level for an additional $1000. District winners will then vie for one of five International awards of $3,000 each.
