Every 11 October, the world celebrates GIRLS during the International Day of the Girl!
The Working Group on Girls' IDG team is looking for videos where you share your stories, poetry, art, songs, or declarations to be featured in this year's Girls Speak Out! This year's theme is 'Closing the Digital Divide to Accelerate Change.'
A diverse collection of works by girls around the world will be selected, and every girl who submits their work will get a special shout-out on the Day of the Girl Summit website or be featured on 11 October.
Read the call for submissions in English, Spanish, French, Arabic and Portuguese for more information on the theme and how to submit your work. The deadline for submissions is 6 September 2021.
If you have several submissions from your organization or school, we kindly ask that you send your submissions as a group from one point of contact, rather than having everyone submit their work individually. As noted in the document, please send submissions to email@example.com.
Please note that this Call for Submissions and Girls Speak Out are organized by the Working Group on Girls' IDG team. NGO CSW/NY is not involved in this project, but is simply disseminating this information.
