Apply for Queen Silver Star

The well-known Queen Silver Star Excellence Program is calling all young women aged 15 to 19.

This is the first year that women as young as 15 are eligible to apply for the program.

The program helps young women make long-lasting friendships, enhance their resume, obtain required graduation volunteer hours and have the opportunity to win scholarship money.

“The six-month program provides opportunity and experience for each young lady to have the tools to present themselves as positive, confident role models and leaders not only within our community but wherever their lives may lead them,” said chair Coleen Noel.

Potential candidates have until June 22 to hand in their application.

From September to February, candidates will attend classes on an average of 2 to 3 times a week learning topics such as; speech, automotive, self-defense, history of Vernon, financial planning, health and fitness, time management and business etiquette.

To apply for Queen Silver Star candidates must reside in Vernon, Coldstream, Lavington, Lumby or Armstrong.
