Are too many girls obsessed with texting?

We need your help! We need your answers to our upcoming Great Debate question!

If you’d like to have a chance to have your answer appear in our January/February 2017 issue, please write and send it to us at:

When I saw the application, I just knew that I had to apply for the DG Leadership Summit. I’ve always dreamed of being in a magazine, and a summit with 36 girls from around the country and Canada sounded like so much fun!

I honestly didn’t think I would make it in, though. I’d heard from previous years that thousands of girls submitted an application. I thought, what are the chances of me getting in? One in thousands?

I decided to apply to be a Discovery Girl because I love the magazine, and I thought it would be an awesome opportunity to learn something, contribute to the magazine, and be a positive role model. I thought my chances of being picked were small because I knew that thousands of girls would probably apply, but I went for it anyway!

I really wanted to be in the magazine, so when I saw the page about applying, I thought, “Why not give it a try?” I didn’t think I would be chosen, though.

I spent from the time I first saw the questions all the way to the deadline on the questionnaire—about three months! I like answering questions so it was fun, and the questions were great. They were really detailed (in a good way).

You may not be able to vote in the U.S. presidential election (yet!), but you can vote right here! Who do you think should be the next president of the United States?

Vote for one of the major party candidates below!
