More About Girls’ Voices for Change:

Girls’ Voices for Change is a global media contest that asks young women (aged 13 to 20) to share their vision for a more empowered future for girls and women everywhere.

Girls globally face unique obstacles - from being denied an education, to discrimination, to physical endangerment, to feeling afraid to express themselves. We ask girls to share these barriers, their stories of triumph, their creativity, and their ideas for change with us.

Our panel of judges, along with the public, votes to choose the winners, who will receive funding to help them further their education and implement their ideas in their communities. No girl gets left behind - each participant will also receive scholarship funding to help her go to school.


Our winners will receive scholarships to further their education and grants to implement projects in their communities. The Judge’s Awards winners will receive $1,500 for video entries and $1,000 for photography. The Audience Award winners will receive $1,000 for video entries and $500 for photography. The GreaterGood Awards winners will receive $1,000 for video entries and $500 for photography.
