Running and Winning is a non-partisan workshop for high school junior and senior girls that is coordinated and presented by the League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson with AAUW Tucson and the YWCA of Southern Arizona as co-sponsors. This will be the 17th year AAUW Tucson is a co-sponsor.

The workshop mission is to encourage the participants to consider running for elected office. In addition, to discover leadership capabilities in themselves by exposing the high school students to women elected officials and women currently running for office from Arizona. Elected officials that attend the workshop include state and local legistators, judges, city/town officers, and others.
