The “She Will Innovate: Technology Solutions Enriching the Lives of Girls” competition, sponsored by Intel Corporation and Ashoka Changemakers, is a challenge designed to promote information and communication technology solutions that improve the lives of girls and women.
Girls and women in particular face complex challenges that prevent them from reaching their true potential. ICTs can contribute to economic growth and development, and empower women to break through the barriers that prevent them from improving their health, education, and well-being.
Anyone, anywhere, is eligible to enter, especially women aged 18 to 34. Entries must be in English, Spanish, Portuguese, or French. Winners will be awarded cash prizes to boost their projects.
Deadline for applications: August 15, 2012.
