Two Minneota High School seniors, Kim Bloch and Molly Krog, will be vying for the title of “Distinguished Young Woman of Minnesota”. Both young ladies will be representing Ivanhoe as their local program winners for the Class of 2020.
They will be joining other local winners for the DYW program to be held Sunday, November 10 at The Garage in Burnsville. Other Minnesota contestants include: Zöe Bonnett of Lakeville; Abbie Gotham of Mendota Heights; Hannah Hawley of Elk River; Lydia Meier of New London; and Aunika Zheng of North Oaks.
Participants will compete for over $2,000 in college scholarships and the opportunity to represent the state as the Distinguished Young Woman of Minnesota for 2020.
The program is open to the public and will begin at 4 p.m.
The young women competing will be evaluated by a panel of five judges in the following categories: Scholastics (25%), Interview (25%), Talent (20%), Fitness (15%), and Self-Expression (15%).
The participant selected as the Distinguished Young Woman of Minnesota will advance to the national level at the 63rd Distinguished Young Women National Finals in Mobile, AL next summer, where she will join with 50 other representatives from across the country to compete for the title of Distinguished Young Woman of America.
During Ivanhoe’s program for the Class of 2021 held this past August, both Molly and Kim performed their talents and they both spoke in front of the audience. Molly’s saxophone solo and Kim’s vocal solo were both beautiful!
Both of these young ladies are very special and will represent Ivanhoe and Minneota High School well. Good luck Kim and Molly!
