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.

Girls selected for the 2020 National Acteens Panel will serve at a national WMU event in June, where they have the opportunity to interact with missionaries and other national leaders involved in missions. They will also serve at Blume, a missions gathering for girls in grades 5–12, July 8–11, 2020. They may also speak at churches and events in their home states. Panelists will also write blogs and create selfie-style videos for WMU social media outlets.

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.
