WE REPRESENT CREATIVE COMPETITION 2019

“Rewriting History… Her Story”

Who you are

You are a creative youth between the ages of 12-18, who yearns to see better representation reflected in the world we live in and aspires to play a part in shaping the narrative of our future. You are excited by the chance to re-tell the story of an underrepresented leader in history!

What you’ll do

You (and up to 2 friends!) will put together and submit a creative work inspired by the stories of real life role models that fit within the year’s theme. The theme in 2019 is “Re-Writing History… Her Story”, so tell the story of remarkable girl/woman who has shaped the world as we know it.

What you’ll get

Dedicated one-on-one office hour sessions with our expert mentors to craft your submission, a chance to win up to $2,500 in cash prizing, a prestigious summer internship, and a feature exhibition at our annual Showcase Conference in the Spring.
