WHAT IS THE NATIONAL ACTEENS PANEL?
The National Acteens Panel is a group of young women who are interested in missions and impacting their world for Christ. The young women selected as national panelists have exhibited a strong commitment to Christ and to missions through their involvement in Acteens, leadership responsibilities in their church and community, and dedication to their academic studies.
National Acteens Panelists are representatives for Acteens from across the country. Panelists serve for one year. In that time, they have many opportunities for growth, leadership experience, and sharing their ideas and hopes for the future direction of Acteens.
Panelists serve at a national WMU event, where they have the opportunity to interact with missionaries and other national leaders involved in missions. They may also speak at churches and events in their home states. Panelists also have a direct avenue to speak personally to Acteens by writing articles for The Mag and blogs for our Web site.
One special benefit of being chosen for the National Acteens Panel is provided through the WMU Foundation. Each panelist will receive a $1,000 scholarship that may be used for the college or other educational experience of her choice.
WHO CAN BE A NATIONAL ACTEENS PANELIST?
Each year, up to six young women are chosen for the National Acteens Panel. Panelists serve for only one year.
