Live Your Dream Award

Congratulations 2019-20 Live Your Dream winner, Amy Escareno!

Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to have our usual award celebration due to COVID-19. We hope to soon. We awarded Amy $500.

Since 1972, the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards program (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards) has disbursed more than $30 million to tens of thousands of women who have overcome poverty, domestic and sexual violence, divorce, the death of a spouse, or other life challenges. They are women—just like you—who had the courage and determination to turn their lives around.

Recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, including books, childcare and transportation. The program begins on the club level, where award amounts vary. Our club awards $500. Club recipients become eligible to receive region-level awards, which are granted through Soroptimist’s 28 geographic regions. Currently, each Soroptimist region grants one first place award for $5,000.
