Young Women of Distinction

Each Spring, the Women’s Council presents the Young Women of Distinction (“YWOD”) Award in an effort to nurture Rochester’s next-generation of women leaders!  The award and event recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding female high school seniors throughout the Greater Rochester Area for their academic excellence, leadership, and community service.

The 2019 event will be held in the spring.

In years past, the Women’s Council has partnered with 98 PXY with Corey James and Whitney Young emceeing the event.  

Many sponsorship and scholarship opportunities are available. This allows the finalists and local businesses a chance to build strong connections and engaging work experience through the Summer. We believe this partnership is critical to helping our region keep its best and brightest graduates.
