Distinguished Young Women Finals in Bakersfield


The 57th Annual Distinguished Young Women of California Finals will be on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30pm at Harvey Auditorium.


It's a nationwide competition recognizing and awarding excellence and achievement. 30 high school juniors from all around California are here in Bakersfield, competing for the state title. Each contestant has already won their local competition, and the statewide winner will get more than $15,000 in scholarship money, with an opportunity to attend a top college.


"In the fall I'll be attending Stanford University in Palo Alto, California," says last year's state winner, Jaqueline Wibowo.


Judges break down the competition into five categories: interview, scholastics, fitness, self-expression, and talent. 


The winner will head to the nationals in Alabama, next year.
