Girls Voices

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 safe 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, will vote 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.

Contest Details

  • All submissions must be from participants of the Girls’ Voices program. To learn more contact: girlsvoices4change@greatergood.org.

  • The deadline for media submissions is August 22, 11:59 AM PT, Pacific Time.
