I had a chance to look through the special 10th Anniversary edition of the Discovery Girls Magazine and I have to say that I was pretty impressed. How could I not be impressed, when they sifted through and reprinted the best from their first ten years of publication? (Some of which was pretty amusing, such as Gotta Have It tech gadgets from 2002). Along with collecting some of the best articles from the last ten years, and some cute and funny blasts from the past, the issue features the winners of the rather nifty Role Model Contest.
The Role Model Contest was something special Discovery Girls cooked up for their 10th Anniversary. Girls submitted questionnaires to be considered for one of the coveted 12 spots, and then the Discovery Girls team selected the top 30. The top 30 were then placed online for girls to vote for their favorites. Finally, the 12 winning “DG Role Models” were flown to California for a photo shoot and featured in the 10-Year Anniversary Collector’s Edition! The 30 top entrants were all truly remarkable girls who did amazing things like starting their own charities, volunteering, etc. Inspiring stuff. These are not just pretty faces, but truly girls that their peers look up to as role models.
