Celebrating young women who are making a difference.
From 2007 through 2013, WomanTalk Live presented the Girls Gone Great Scholarship Essay Contest to honor a young woman in Maryland who was making a big difference in the community and one we felt would carry her passion and vision into the future to make a difference in the world.
WomanTalk Live has always known that there are a lot more girls going great than girls going wild. The problem is we usually don’t get to hear about all of wonderful things young women are doing.
We believe young women have a voice, great ideas, make contributions, have hopes and dreams…and, WomanTalk Live celebrates them all!
Girls Gone Great has taken a hiatus since 2014… but STAY TUNED! We’re making some exciting changes in the program and will be sharing that with you later in 2016 when we announce the new scholarship essay contest.
Of course, we’ll keep you posted and, in the meantime, enjoy the essays from our past winners. They’re amazing young women.
And, keep your eyes peeled for girls you know who are up to great things.
