Celebrating Girls in the DMV

2nd Annual DC LOVE Awards

The DC Love Awards is celebrating the achievements of girls in the areas of entrepreneurship, leadership, performing arts, and community service.

The Love Awards were created to recognize deserving young women for their accomplishments. More importantly, Love, GIRLS Magazine and IN THE LOOP Program of Success acknowledge the need to build self-esteem in young women and to create positive female leaders for tomorrow. The DC Love Awards provide an opportunity to do that.
