Girls’ Voices ignites creativity, resilience, and leadership in girls worldwide, through the power of digital media storytelling and education.

Vote for Your Favorite Media!

October 22nd (4PM PST) – November 9th (11:59PM PST)

You can vote once per category, per day. Select the pieces that inspire you the most, and cast your vote—it’s as simple as that! Want to help your favorite entry win? Share it with your friends on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter to spread the word!

The young woman who receives the most votes for her video will receive a $1,000 grant towards her scholarship fund, and the girl who receives the most votes for her photography project will receive a $300 grant towards her scholarship fund.


Courage asks girls to show us their fighting spirit in the face of uncertainty and adversity.

Changemaker asks girls to show a community issue she cares about and suggest a solution.

Creativity asks girls to show us the world from their eyes.

Each category is also divided into video and photography submissions, which means you can vote six times total per day!

This year’s judges include Laura Ling, Ashley Bell, Rebeccah Dharmapalan, and Victoria Moroles. Learn more about them here!
