Distinguished Young Women National Finalists, Alabama’s Madeline Powell, and Mississippi’s Peryn Reeves-Darby.

Encore is proud to be a sponsor of the Distinguished Young Women’s program, and is excited about the 57th Annual Nationals competition, June 26-28, 2014!

“For more than 56 years, Mobile, Alabama has been the home of Distinguished Young Women, formerly the America’s Junior Miss scholarship program. Each year fifty of the nation’s brightest and most accomplished young women visit the Gulf Coast to compete for more than $100,000 in cash scholarships and the opportunity to represent the program as the Distinguished Young Woman of America.

We would like to congratulate all of the 2014 National Finalists and wish them good luck as they make their way to Mobile next week! To see  a list of all the contestants, please follow the link: http://www.ajm.org/programs/national_finals/participants/
