2017 Year of the Girls

The Year of the Girl was an exciting project that provides an opportunity for citizens to nominate and celebrate the girls who make our community so special.  “The City of Tallahassee is thrilled to be a partner in the Year of the Girl initiative to highlight and honor outstanding young women in our community,” said Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. “These girls are already a driving force behind the dynamic growth of our city and I look forward to watching them take the reigns as leaders of tomorrow.”

“There are so many girls in our County doing great things,” said Leon County Commission Chairman Bill Proctor. “Leon County is proud to support women and girls in our community.  This initiative will help tell the stories of young women who will be our future leaders.”
