Applications are open to all voting-age Houston-area residents regardless of race, gender, political affiliation, religion, or creed. We welcome applications from those who represent all elements of civic life, including the visual and performing arts, academia, philanthropy, volunteerism, politics, community work, science, industry, engineering, medicine, education, sports, faith-based endeavors and all uniform services.
Applicants may not be active candidates for elected office and must live in the greater Houston area. There is no application fee and membership in the League of Women Voters is not required to apply.
Completed applications are due by July 31st, 11:59pm, and the new Rising Stars Class of 2018-2019 will be inaugurated at our Women’s Equality Day Commemoration in September. If you have any other questions about the Rising Star program, the League of Women Voters, or this application, please contact Michelle Shabani-Ritchel (email@example.com).
