During a luncheon, the Zonta Club of Bradford, Pennsylvania, USA, recognized six young women with Amelia Earhart awards.
The students were nominated by their counselors at the Bradford Area High School. Club members said the honorees were young women who have overcome odds to become graduating seniors.
The young women were invited to a lunch, given a certificate, a yellow rose and an inspirational gift.
The club has been participating in this particular advocacy project for over 15 years.
They also donated a book on the life of Amelia Earhart to the area middle school library.
