About the event

📣 Calling all BOLD Girls & Allies in grades 7-12 who are passionate about becoming changemakers! 

Come present a solution design to a pressing issue that is limiting women and girls in their everyday life. Examples include but are not limited to: body image and shaming; perfectionism and unrealistic expectations; and harmful and out-of-date gender stereotypes. We invite you to turn your passion and talent into impact and create, either with some friends or on your own, a solution design for the change you wish to see.

Changemaker Challenge: Need to know

  • You will be required to pitch your solution design with your team on March 9th, 2024, in person at Microsoft Campus, Redmond, Washington or virtually* if you reside outside the Puget Sound.
  • To participate, an adult sponsor (e.g., parent, guardian, teacher) must register your team no later than February 24th
  • Each team must be composed of at least one individual and no more than 6 members to qualify. All team members must be 7th to 12 graders.
  • The team will be required to research their target audience, and propose a solution design that will address a problem impacting young women and girls. They must explain why the solution has potential and describe the impact they expect it to have. All solutions must be a new solution or an improvement on an existing solution.
  • All presented solutions will be evaluated by a panel of expert professionals.

Not only will you have the chance to make an impact, but you’ll also receive a Changemaker Challenge Certificate, plus the chance to win a prize for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to turn your passion into action. Don’t forget to get an adult sponsor (e.g., parent, guardian, teacher) to register you by Feb 24th, and let’s work together to create a brighter future for all women and girls.
