This all-girls event will focus on leadership development, remaining active in the game of golf, learning the value/impact of volunteerism, and recognizing the importance of teamwork. Applicants will be asked to define the people or circumstances that ‘drive’ them to take on a position of leadership and describe how they plan to apply those principles in their life. In addition, one girl selected for the Academy will be chosen to receive a $5,000 college scholarship plus the opportunity to be a VIP guest and pro-am participant at the John Deere Classic in July 2017.
A total of 24 female participants will be selected from the chapter network for the four day academy experience. Participants will submit, essays, activities chart and a chapter letter of recommendation.
