January 3: Civic Engagement Among the 'DotNet' Generation

Just heard about this event from the Arlington League of Women Voters:
Please join us as three recipients of the League of Women Voters Torill B. Floyd Memorial Public Service Scholarship lead a panel discussion on "Civic Engagement Among the 'DotNet' Generation." The event will take place on Thursday, January 3, from 7-9 p.m. at the Arlington Central Library in the Youth Services Program Room.

The three panelists are:

Gwendolyn Nixon-Carter, a 2000 graduate of Yorktown who attended Mary Washington University and now works in the children's division at the Arlington County Library;

Claire Reifsnyder, a 2005 graduate of Yorktown who is attending the University of Virginia and distinguishing herself as a historian; and

Nour Bouadis, a 2006 graduate of Washington-Lee who is attending the George Washington University and is active in the Muslim Students' Association.

These engaged young women will discuss the ways that their generation takes part in public life, as well as describing the challenges and opportunities involved in mobilizing more of their peers toward civic ends.
