Beyond Spots & Dots Helps Cribs for Kids® Acknowledge Achievements of Girls & Young Women

Wednesday, November 20, 2019


Beyond Spots & Dots will sponsor Cribs for Kids’® second annual Junior Women of Achievement Awards taking place on Sunday, November 24, 2019 at the Omni William Penn Hotel. As a woman-owned business, Beyond Spots & Dots is thrilled to support the accomplishments of 15 impressive girls and young women.

Cribs for Kids®, a national infant safe-sleep education non-profit, launched the Junior Women of Achievement Awards last year to honor young individuals (ages 8-21) who are accomplishing extraordinary feats. By recognizing achievements in academics, service and leadership, Cribs for Kids® hopes to inspire and foster their potential for leadership. 

“From a very young age I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur and operate my own business,” said Melanie Querry, President and Founder, Beyond Spots & Dots. “Despite great strides made in recent years, females are often underrepresented in senior leadership roles, the C-suite and board seats. Celebrating the achievements and potential of girls and young women at such an impressionable age is so incredibly important to build and sustain the confidence necessary to succeed as leaders in the professional world.”
