Distinguished Young Women has a presence in all 50 states with more than 400 local programs in towns and cities across the country. The competition for scholarships begins at the local level during the junior or senior year for high school girls. Each Distinguished Young Women program evaluates participants in the following categories: Scholastics (20% of overall score), Interview (25% of overall score), Talent (25% of overall score), Fitness (15% of overall score), and Self-Expression (15% of overall score).

Once a participant receives the overall award at her local program, she advances to the state program. All state winners participate in the National Finals competition in Mobile, Alabama in June after they graduate from high school. In addition to college scholarships, a Distinguished Young Woman receives a medallion to symbolize her achievements in the classroom and in extracurricular activities.
