Otsego, MN – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) announced today that his office is now accepting submissions for the second annual Young Women Leadership Program. 

This excellent program allows high school girls from Minnesota’s Sixth District to learn firsthand about different career options from professional women who have built successful careers and hold or have held leadership roles in government, business, media, and other fields. Participants of this program will be able to take part in open roundtable discussions with their peers and women professionals, all while hearing stories, receiving guidance, and gaining valuable insights.

“I am happy to make this exciting announcement during Women’s History Month because this program helps recognize the many incredible contributions and accomplishments made by women all over our great state,” said Emmer. “By highlighting the achievements of Minnesotan women and having them give insight to current high school students, we hope that young girls will realize, that through their hard work and determination, that they can realize their dreams. After the great success of last year’s program, I am very much looking forward to meeting and inspiring another group of fantastic young women.” 

Further details on this program, including how to apply and last year’s panelists can be found on Congressman Emmer’s website. Applications will be accepted through May 15th
