On Sunday, May 7th, Meskwaki 7th and 8th grade young women were honored with awards from our local chapter of the American Association of University women.
Each year teachers write a letter to the AAUW and nominate young women in the core areas of Math, Science, Social Studies, and English.
The local chapter is comprised of local women who have graduated from college or university and wish to promote the success of future women.
Awards were given to:
