Mika Brzezinski will give women nationwide a shot at winning $10,000 to "further their lives and careers" as part of an upcoming "Know Your Value" conference tour across the country.
The "Grow Your Value Bonus Competition" will challenge women around the United States to explain in a 60-second video why they deserve a $10,000 bonus, according an announcement by the MSNBC host and NBCUniversal on Monday.
The giveaway is part of the "Know Your Value" nationwide tour, which will feature guest speakers including Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) at five conferences across the U.S. The tour begins April 10 in Philadelphia and travels to Washington, D.C. (May 15), Chicago (Sept. 25), Boston (Oct. 23), and Orlando (Nov. 20).
Three finalists will be chosen from each tour stop to receive professional coaching from Brzezinski, the co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and "Knowing Your Value" author.
Of those finalists, five grand prize winners — one from each stop on the tour — will be selected to win the $10,000 bonus.
Each conference will also include workshops designed to help women "attain a higher level of confidence and ultimately achieve success," including negotiating and body language, according to the NBC announcement.
The public can purchase tickets to the conferences and enter the "Grow Your Value Bonus Competition" beginning Monday, March 2, at the Know Your Value homepage.
