In off-election years since 2007, Running and Winning Workshop has brought together current and former female elected officials to visit in a small group setting with high school girls to encourage the girls to consider a career in public service and to share their personal perspective on the political process. As part of the workshop, the girls will develop and execute a complete campaign strategy.
We could not provide this unique experience without the participation of our current and former female elected officials who have been so gracious in giving freely of their time and expertise.
We also could not provide this workshop without the generosity of our members who support Running and Winning through their contributions. Running and Winning is free for the students to attend, so we must raise $6980.00 to cover the cost for this event.
I hope you will consider supporting Running and Winning with a tax deductible contribution to the League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha. You can mail your contribution to the League in the self addressed stamped envelope included for your convenience.
I quote a few unedited comments by the girls who have participated in past Running and Winning Workshops:
“It gave me a good insight on how women play a role in the political areas.”
“Just the relationship you build with your teammates and how you use teamwork.”
“I used to think it was boring! Now I totally don’t. It’s so interesting/fun.”
“It changed my point of view by making me feel as if government & politics isn’t such a bad thing after all.”
“That it’s attainable for me!”
Thank you so much for considering supporting Running and Winning through you kind donation.
