Applications are open for the Girls’ Voices For Change Contest 2020. In this year’s Girls’ Voices for Change contest, you can submit a video proposal for a changemaking idea in your community and/or a photo essay showing positive change taking place in your life.

Girls’ Voices believes that every girl deserves an education, that every girl has a voice, and that those voices drive change. Change starts young, and it starts with you. As future community leaders, they want to see how you create positive change in your community, helping people, pets/animals, and the planet.
