Distinguished Young Women
Founded in 1958 in Mobile, Alabama, Distinguished Young Women is the largest and oldest national scholarship program for high school girls. It has provided life-changing experiences for more than 700,000 young women across the country and more than $93 million in cash scholarships at the local, state and national levels. Many participants leave the program with scholarships to help them with their college educations, but all of them walk away with friendships, life skills and increased self-confidence. Distinguished Young Women strives to positively impact the lives of young women by providing a transformative experience that promotes and rewards scholarship, leadership and talent.
Sravya Vishnubhatla, a senior at duPont Manual High school in the Math, Science, and Technology magnet, currently holds the title of Junior Miss of Louisville after competing at the local level. This January she will be representing Louisville at the state competition where she will compete against 35 other Junior Misses from various counties of Kentucky in 5 events: scholastics, interview, fitness, talent, and self expression. In addition to competing, Sravya will engage in community service through Be Your Best Self, Build a Bear, and community readings.
At the Kentucky finals this past weekend, Sravya won three awards totaling $2,000 in cash scholarship money she can use in college.
