My Story
We asked girls to share their lives with us—their triumphs, obstacles, and dreams. The winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship to pursue further education or vocational training.
Changemaker
We want to see girls’ ideas for change. We asked them to show us their vision for a more equal world for girls, what they want to do for their community, or what they’re already doing to better their communities. The winner will receive a $1,000 grant and mentorship to implement her community project.
Style and Culture
We asked girls to show us how their local art, style, crafts, and fashion bring their cultures to life. We’re celebrating the unique creativity, design, and expression around the world through these stories. The winner will receive $1,000 to further her education or create a community arts project.
Photography
In a series of photographs, we asked girls to show us their world, what inspires them, and what makes their community unique. The winner will receive a $500 scholarship to pursue education or vocational training.

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, 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.
