At the heart of our branch are our outreach projects. AAUW Roseville-South Placer (RSP) supports education in our community in a variety of ways including a speech competition for local high school students, college scholarships for high school students and women reentering higher education and by sending middle school girls to a week-long STEM camp. We also offer a variety of development programs.

​All of our efforts are made possible by the ongoing work of our volunteers and generosity of our donors.

Thank you!​Co-Vice Presidents of Outreach: Kathy Novotny and Michele Stark

Speech Trek

Speech Trek is a speech competition hosted by AAUW for local high school students. The competition gives students an opportunity to develop their research, critical thinking and communication skills as well as a platform to share their thoughts on a given topic related to AAUW's mission.

At the branch level, winners are awarded scholarships of up to $1,200. The first place winner is then considered for the state competition where they can win an additional scholarship of up to $1,500. Our local prize funds are endowed by Mr. Gray Allen in honor of his late wife Eleanor Stem-Allen who initiated the branch Speech Trek program and served as its coordinator for the first two years.

Coming February 2024

2023-2024 Speech Trek Topic:

If an educated population is essential to a nation’s prosperity, then how can we ensure a robust public-school curriculum that is accessible to all and teaches historically accurate information?
