The International Women’s Health Coalition’s Young Visionaries contest
encourages youth to share their visions for young people and the future.
Until March 25, 2010 youth between the ages of 18 and 30 can share their
visions for a just and healthy life, and get a chance to win a $1000 grant
from the International Women’s Health Coalition to fund a project that works
toward this vision.
Do you share IWHC’s vision for promoting and protecting the health and
rights of women and young people worldwide? Are you actively engaged in
shaping a world where women and young people are free from discrimination,
sexual coercion, and violence; where they make free and informed choices
about sexuality and reproduction; or where health information and services
are available to help them lead safer and healthier lives? Do you have an
idea for a project that works toward your vision of change?
Nominate yourself today by answering four short questions about your vision.
Then, spread the word and encourage people to vote for you! Five nominees
will become finalists by popular vote and IWHC staff will select five more
nominees after nominations close on March 25, 2010. Our guest judges will
then select our Grand Prize winner, who will be announced in early
April. The contest is open to young people between the ages of 18 and 30
(inclusive) from all over the world. Read full contest rules here.
