Do You Gotta Fight for Your Rights? Enter IWHC’s Young Visionaries Contest!

January 28, 2010

Yesterday I had the privilege of interviewing Audacia Ray, sexuality rights activist and Program Officer for Online Communications and Campaigns at the NYC-based International Women’s Health Coalition.  You can get the scoop on the interview on February 15, when we feature Audacia in our next Global Feminist Profile.

Audacia passed on some exciting news: IWHC is holding a contest for activists between the ages of 18 and 30 who have a plan for promoting women’s rights, sexuality rights, or reproductive health. (Important note from Audacia: this includes women, men, trans, and non-gender binary peoples in their struggles toward health and rights!) The winner will receive a $1000 grant to make her or his plan happen. Nominations are due March 25, but enter early for a chance to be one of five finalists chosen by popular vote.

Visit the Young Visionaries contest page and see below for more details from IWHC.

Our 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.
