Glamour’s Top 10 College Women competition has recognized 10 students from across the country for the past 54 years for their campus leadership, scholastic achievement, community involvement and unique, inspiring goals.

The 10 winners will be honored at a breakfast at The Modern restaurant in New York City on Thursday. Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive and Glamour Executive Vice President and Publishing Director Bill Wackermann will both speak at the breakfast.

L’Oréal Paris is the exclusive sponsor of Glamour magazine’s Top 10 College Women awards and will present its 11th annual Beauty of Giving award.

“Working with L’Oréal Paris for over a decade in celebrating Glamour’s Top 10 College Women has been an incredible achievement,” Wackermann said. “The longtime partnership with L’Oréal as an exclusive sponsor has aided us both in finding the most amazing young women across the country.”

The 10 winners are profiled in an editorial feature in the October issue of Glamour, available on newsstands now. Click here to view the article online. Click here to read the profile on Rotman.

Each winner will receive a cash prize, a trip to New York City, introductions to top professionals in a variety of fields, national recognition in the magazine and a gift bag from L’Oréal Paris. Additionally, L’Oréal Paris will present its Beauty of Giving Award to one of the 10 honorees. The award, a $2,500 donation to the charity of the winner’s choice, will be given by L’Oréal Paris to the woman who exemplifies the strongest charitable spirit.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
