Meet the young women who are changing the world

Zonta International is proud to announce the 2019 Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award district/region and international recipients, who represent 20 countries. Click here to view a list of the recipients.

Established in 1990, Zonta's YWPA Award recognizes young women ages 16-19 for their commitment to volunteerism, volunteer leadership achievements and dedication to empowering women worldwide, and encourages them to continue their participation in public and political life.

Zonta clubs provide awards for club recipients, and district/region and international awards are funded by the Zonta International Foundation. District and region recipients receive US$1,500, and 10 international recipients are selected from the district/region recipients to receive awards of US$4,000 each.
