Girl Rising and HP Celebrate Stories of Change
 

The Girl Rising Creative Challenge, Powered by HP Call for Submissions Is Now Open

 Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 23, 2018 –   HP and Girl Rising are now accepting submissions for the Girl Rising Creative Challenge, Powered by HP. This global challenge is designed to encourage individuals to share stories of how they or people within their own communities are making the world a better place for girls and young women through technology. Submissions, in the form of video, audio, essays and artwork, will be accepted through Girl Rising’s website from May 22 through August 15, 2018.
 
“Gender-based discrimination keeps millions of girls and women from reaching their full potential. Yet countless individuals are taking action in their communities every day, bringing about new opportunities for girls and creating real social change,” Christina Lowery, CEO of Girl Rising, said. “I have the immense privilege of hearing these amazing stories of impact on a daily basis. This challenge is a powerful opportunity to share them and their inspiration widely.”
 
The challenge, first announced on March 8th’s International Women’s Day with the release of ‘Paro,’ a short film produced by HP Studios, exemplifies the power of storytelling to drive change. A judging panel will review submissions throughout the campaign and select entries will be highlighted on the site. A selection of submissions will be shared on the site throughout the challenge period before winners are announced on October 11, International Day of the Girl Child to elevate the many different stories from around the world.
 
“We believe authentic stories have the promise to change mindsets and spark meaningful action,” said Antonio Lucio, Global Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, HP. “This partnership is a testament to the power of storytelling and elevating the voices of all in driving meaningful progress towards a more diverse, inclusive and equal world.”
 
“All those supporting the girls in their lives should know their actions have value, however small they may seem,” Martha Adams, Girl Rising’s Chief Creative Officer, said. “A coach who starts the first local sports team for girls, a brother who helps with chores so his sister has time for her homework, a teacher who creates a hotline to report child marriages; these are all powerful examples that can lead to profound change. We want them all!” 
 
Challenge winners will receive a combination of micro-grants, HP products and services, and access to mentors to support them on their journey to drive social impact in their communities. Additional information, including challenge judges will be announced in mid-June.
