Thanks to a generous donation from the Lapan Sunshine Memorial Foundation, My Girl Power Project is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Legacy Tour to DC and NYC taking off this summer, scheduled for July 19 - July 24, 2016.   

We will be awarding 7 tour scholarships to high school girls in Southern Arizona, who are excited to learn about women who have left their marks on history, and who are eager to learn how to make their own legacy marks in the future.

This a 5 Day Contest, open from June 4 - June 9.  All submittals must be received by 10:00 pm PST on June 9, 2016.  Two of the winners will be selected by the Lapan College Club, serving the Wakefield Community, and the other 5 winners will be selected by My Girl Power Advisory Council, who will be reviewing all applications.  Winners will be announced the next day!
Tour Scholarships will cover travel, hotel, main attractions included on itinerary, and major meals.  Participants will be expected to bring some spending money for souvenirs, snacks, etc.

My Girl Power is a not-for-profit project under the John P. Bell Family Foundation, a 501c3 organization focused on family health, blood donation, toy drives for pediatric patients and k-12 educational initiatives. The tour is a program designed and managed through Historic Program Tours, a non-profit educational company, based out of Mesa, Arizona. Lucy Howell, My Girl Power Co-Founder and Chair, will serve as Tour Host and Chaperone.

My Girl Power's Legacy Tour to DC, NYC, and Beyond is open to incoming sophomore, junior and senior girls, for the 2016-2017 school year, who have their parents permission to participate.  

Winners will be expected to participate in a pre-tour launch meeting, interviews, digital media platform development, and post tour celebration party with key community stakeholders.
