However, have you heard of the Distinguished Young Women's Scholarship Competition? Formerly known as America's Junior Miss, this Scholarship Program has been giving over $40,000 in Scholarships every year since 1958, (including one to Diane Sawyer, who won in 1963). Three Julian girls ( Allyson Kinstle, Emily Carter, and I) had the chance to such a wonderful program, where we met 18 other Junior girls from all over San Diego County. It was a terrific way to see girls from all walks of life express themselves physically, verbally, and mentally in such'a poised, classy, passionate way. The competition consists of five different categories. The interview is 25% of the contestant's total score. Each girl participates in a ten minute interview with a panel of five judges. She could be asked anything from what she thinks of gay marriage and the Middle East crisis, to her favorite book, to what she would ask Pope John Paul I1. She is judged based on her analytical skills, her perception, the ability to express herself, and her knowledge of current affairs. The second category is the scholastic section, worth 20% of the total score. The admissions counselors of the University of San Diego (USD) evaluate each contestant's high school transcript, onsidering the difficulty of classes, test scores, and their overall grade point average (GPA). The next category is talent, worth 25%. Each girl presents an individually created presentation (no longer than 90 seconds 10ng). Evaluation is based on costume, originality, technical ability, and stage presence. Self-Expression is the fourth category. Each contestant presents a brief speech according to the subject of her choice. This is worth 15% of the total score. The final 15% of the score is the fitness routine. An aerobic routine is performed to lively music in which each contestant is evaluated on her stamina, coordination, agility, and physical fitness. Doesn't sound like the typical pageant, does it? Pageants have come a long way and this one showcases the continuation of growth of women in our society today. Emily Carter, Allyson Kinstle, and I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in such an excellent program. I can easily say it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Every Saturday for six weeks, we would wake up early and carpool to Scripp's Ranch Recreational Center. We would practice our dance routines, public speaking, and hear from motivational speakers. I'd have to say the best part of the "pageant" was all of the girls that we were blessed to meet. They were Juniors just like us, motivated to attend a four year university and astound the world with their prominence. Never have I seen a more caring, wholesome, talented group of girls. We were all such close friends by the end of the six weeks, that it really didn't matter who would win anymore. I know that the Julian girls stay in touch with many of the contestants from all over San Diego County. Finally, March 6th arrived. After weeks of practicing pushups and jumping jacks in unison, and brainstorming the perfect speech, 21 girls were ready to share their spark with the audience at Shiley Theater on the campus of USD. The evening performance started with a group dance with the four winners of the class of 2011. Next, was fitness routines (yikes!), talent routines, and self-expression speeches. The talents ranged from dramatic monologues and epic poetry, to Indian dancing, tap, ballet en point, piano, flute, and beautiful songs. The best part was seeing the wholesomeness and the classiness of so many Junior girls. These are girls who commit their time and energy to bettering themselves and their talents, and boy, was it exciting to watch. The speeches were humorous (talking about the ability to drive a stick shift), random (talking about a dog named Bubbles), to thought provoking (talking about the hardships of growing up in a society where you are "cool" only if you are like everyone else). This perhaps, was the underlying theme of the program- no two girls are alike. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, yet we all have something unique to offer this world and make it a better place. When it came to time for the awards, I felt content and so very proud of all of the beauty and grace and poise still gracing our society today; I was in the midst of amazing young women that will shape our world, our future, and represent the best part of our young generation. An award was given per category, then five Distinguished Young Women were chosen overall to compete in the state competition held in Bakersfield in July. The interview scholarship was given to Sidiqa Hooker, a student at the Preuss School UCSD. She was also awarded the talent award (singing and playing guitar) as well as the self-expression award, and the fitness scholarship award. The scholastics award was given to Shuchi Chaturvedi from Mt. Carmel High School. The "Be Your Best Self" optional essay scholarship was given to Elizabeth Garza from Vista High School. The Spirit Award (nominated by the contestants) was given to Katelyn Wooley from Carlsbad High School. The five overall winners were Melissa Hand of Canyon Crest Academy, Manita Singh of Canyon Crest Academy, Caitlyn Umphreyville from Carlsbad High School, Rachel Latterich from Pacific Ridge High School, and Sidiqa Hooker from Preuss School. Our society is truly blessed with many talented young women who are motivated in all aspects of life. I have never met so many religious, athletic, tall, short, beautiful young people. Every women can bless this Earth with each of her talents and skills. I really encourage the future Junior girls to participate in this We'll have fun, delicious food and drink. Plus meet members of the 4th of July Parade Committee. 50/50 drawing Raffle tickets to ride in vintage aircraft available. Harry and Sabine Homer will donate a portion of the proceeds of dinner that evening to the Parade Committee to help pay for putting on the parade. When you arrive let staffknow you're with the Parade Party. Information: Bobbi Zane - 1224 experience. I know each of us felt some type of envy, but overall we benefited from an experience to express ourselves and make new friends. Please congratulate Emily and Allyson for their bravery and accomplishments. The Distinguished Young Women's motto is "We do not choose a winner from a group of representatives, but really a representative from a group of winners". Although we did not win, we still had an opportunity of a lifetimt . I wouldn't trade that for a gold crown and sash anyday.
