Local middle schoolers were recognized by the Edina Community Foundation’s Bold New Idea initiative earlier this year. In September they gathered for the first Girls’ Sports Summit to encourage other girls to participate in sports.
Junior varsity board members of the Edina nonprofit Her Next Play hosted the event for over 100 registered participants. Her Next Play seeks to empower female athletes. Speakers included successful female athletes and there was also a range of fun activities to help inspire and build confidence in the young women in attendance.
