GEORGETOWN, Del.- Jenna Anger of Bridgeville was named the Distinguished Young Woman of Delaware and awarded $2,350 in cash scholarships during a statewide scholarship program for high school girls held at the Possum Point Theater in Georgetown. 

Anger was one of six, high school senior females who competed to represent the state of Delaware as the 2020 distinguished young woman.

All participants were evaluated in the following categories, scholastic (25 percent), interview (25 percent), talent (20 percent), fitness (15 percent) and self-expression (15 percent). 

The daughter of Neil and Gina Anger and a senior at Sussex Central High School in Georgetown, Anger is responsible for representing the state at public events and serve as a role model to teenagers by spreading the program's national outreach message of "Be Your Best Self".

The Distinguished Young Women program was created to encourage teens with self-esteem and excellence in its five principles- be healthy, be involved, be studious, be ambitious and be responsible.  

The program has impacted more than 770,000 young women and its mission is to empower high school females by providing scholarships, developing self confidence and teaching crucial life skills needed for success in college and life.
