The Rising Star Award is presented annually to exceptional women, under the age of 25 years old, who have boldly broken ceilings and challenged systemic barriers to create a path for girls and women to achieve greatness. It is our way of thanking these incredible young trailblazers for shattering misconceptions and redefining expectations for girls everywhere.

EmpowHer Student STEM Project Competition

Our eighth and ninth grade classes have been challenged to work in groups to identify a social justice issue that is important to them and develop a project proposal outlining how a STEAM technique can be used to amplify and/or address the problem. The challenge is designed to foster innovation, engage in social justice, and develop 21st Century Skills – critical thinking, communication and collaboration. In completing the challenge, students must: (1) identify and learn about a pressing social justice issue that impacts a marginalized community; (2) use creativity and innovation; (3) communicate with group members to complete assignments; and (4) work in groups of 1-15 girls to conduct research and develop a project proposal presentation. The top three teams in each grade level are pre-selected to present their project proposal to a panel of judges during the Girls to Greatness Teen Summit. Judges will award first ($1000), second ($500), and third ($250) prizes to the winners in each grade level.

Get Involved: Become a Mentor

As a mentor, you will be paired with another mentor to meet in-person with a small group of middle/high school girls and share your story. As a successful leader, your journey of success both challenges and inspires our girls to believe in themselves, their potential to achieve and to overcome obstacles. Your story is a fearless example to all young people to create their own stories of accomplishment.
