2020 Annual Awards
In May of each year, the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley (SCV) usually hosts an awards ceremony where the Zonta Club of SCV announces and awards the recipients of our local Club awards and scholarships. However, this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we celebrated and announced each of our awardees and scholarship recipients virtually.
Awards are based on the Club's fund-raising efforts in the previous year. In total, the Zonta Club of SCV was able to award $15,500 in scholarships and awards.
Three local non-profit organizations were awarded a Community Grant to support their programs that empower women and girls and improve their lives.
Four women are sharing in Virginia Wrage Memorial Scholarships given to mature women who have faced a life-changing situation and need help to become self-sufficient again.
Three young women share in the Club's Young Women in Public Affairs Award (YWPA). The prize money is distributed to winners who attend local high schools or college, and are 16 – 19 years of age.
The Zonta Club of SCV is proud to present these scholarships and grants to women and local non-profit organizations with the desire that more women and girls of all ages will be empowered in society – locally and worldwide.
