For 17 years, we have recognized Alaskans ages 16 – 18 who have overcome significant obstacles in their lives while embodying YWCA Alaska’s mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families and strengthen communities while promoting dignity, peace, freedom and justice for all. If you or a young person you know fits that description, use the button below to apply.
Each of the five awardees will receive a cash prize, financial management counseling at YWCA Alaska to help them prepare for their future, and statewide recognition.
