Perhaps you know of a deserving person – she will be a local woman who is the primary financial support for her family and is seeking further education by attending college or a vocational training program. She is on a determined path to better herself and her family. She also needs some help.

Soroptimist International’s Live Your Dream Award could be of assistance by helping in her efforts to attain higher education. Soroptimist International of Apache Junction and Soroptimist International of Gold Canyon are each seeking applicants for this year’s award. Two fortunate and deserving women will receive cash awards. Their compelling stories may also place them in competition for awards at Soroptimist International’s regional and national levels.

Applications are available on our local chapters’ websites. Forms may also be picked up at Central Arizona College, 273 Old West Highway in Apache Junction. The application consists of basic information and an essay that give the applicant an opportunity to share her story and explain why she deserves the award.

The deadline to submit entries is Nov. 15.

For more information, call Barb Plante with Gold Canyon Soroptimist at 480-694-5153 or Terri Stewart with Apache Junction Soroptimist at 480-982-3434.

Soroptimist International is a volunteer organization of business and professional women with a mission to help women and girls in local communities and throughout the world.
