Past Winning Essays


This summer, the Girls' Leadership arm of GLOW is working hard to implement our winning IGNITE Change Project.  In April, our IGNITE Change Initiative awarded 9 additional finalists with scholarships and prizes.   We wanted to share their insightful ideas for community change in our new Real Girl Leaders Series [originally posted on the Boston GLOW blog].

All essays are an actionable, fund-able community change plan answering the question "If you had one year and one thousand dollars what would you change for women and girls in your school, community or city?"

Read the Essays from our 2013 Finalists:
