Centennial High School Event:

On Saturday, February 24th, the Girl Up campaign will be hosting a Regional Girl Up Leadership Summit for students in the greater Howard County area at the Miller Branch Library (in the Patapsco/Ellicott meeting rooms) from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Girl Up is a gender equality organization that works under the United Nations foundation to make sure that girls in developing countries are healthy, safe, and educated. This event aims to bring together passionate youth advocates to learn from influential speakers, share relevant opportunities, participate in thought-provoking discussions, and network with student leaders in their community. There will be several seminars, workshops, and fun activities! Lunch is provided.

Interested participants can register here --  tinyurl.com/mdgirlup -- if they'd like to pay the attendance fee at the door, or here -- tinyurl.com/hcgirlup -- if they can pay the fee online. The registration fee is a $10 direct donation to the Girl Up campaign. Every penny counts towards helping one disadvantaged girl achieve her dreams!
