Let Girls Lead is a global movement that empowers girls and their allies to lead social change through advocacy, education, economic empowerment, storytelling, and strategic partnerships. Let Girls Lead improves girls’ education, health, and livelihoods through strategic partnerships that ensure girl-friendly laws, funding, and programs around the world. They enable girls to share their own inspiring stories of leadership through the interactive media platform and powerful short films. They support girls’ economic empowerment and entrepreneurship, and sustainable solutions to ending poverty. The results include laws and policies that improve girls’ lives, and programs that empower young women to develop their own solutions to the obstacles they face.

Girls are powerful leaders and the Global Girls Conversation is their chance to tell their stories, raise their voices, and share their success with the world. Let Girls Lead’s Global Girls’ Conversation video contest is now accepting submissions of 1-2 minute videos that capture how girls are transforming their own lives and the world.

Your video submission will be judged by a panel of experts and girl leaders based on how clearly it shows:

  1. Why you are a leader in your community
  2. How your leadership changed your family or community
  3. Why your important story should be made into a film
  4. Your unique point of view as a girl leader or organization working with girl leaders

Videos should be between 1-2 minutes in length and must be accompanied by a full video transcription in English. The full rules and terms are AVAILABLE HERE.


This contest is open to girls between 12-25 years of age. Enter as either individuals, groups, or organizations.


A jury of filmmakers, global experts, and girl leaders will select the best videos submitted, and winners will receive $10,000 in funding, training, and equipment to create their own short films.
