Analyn Bohensky, daughter of Michael and Amy Bohensky of San Saba, has been selected as a candidate in the Distinguished Youth of Texas Scholarship and Recognition Program to be held November 26-28 at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel in San Antonio. During the weekend competition, two students will be chosen to receive a $1,000.00 United States Savings Bond and the right to serve as a State Program Titleholder for one year. In all, more than $5,000.00 in awards and prizes will be presented to various participants.
The Distinguished Youth Program is designed to recognize girls in grades 2-7 who rank high academically and who are leaders in their schools and communities. The judging criteria used to select the two state titleholders includes the following: Scholastic Record; Service to School & Community; Personality Projection; and Interview. Program Founder, Warren Alexander, stated, "This program truly reflects the female youth of the Twenty-First Century. The candidates are well-rounded, intelligent students. Sixty percent of the judging involves written resumes, with another significant portion being the interview with the judges."
The Program Finals will be held Sunday afternoon, November 28th at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel and will culminate in the naming of the new Little Miss of Texas and the new Young Miss of Texas. Special Guests featured in the program will be the current Little Miss of Texas, Mattie Matlock of Lamesa, and the current Young Miss of Texas, Shelby Bellah of Hico.
