The Women's Media Center invites girls from all over the United States, ages 14-22, to create a 1-5 minute Girls' State of the Union video in response to the President's speech. Five finalists will be highlighted on the Women's Media Center's YouTube channel and a group of diverse and talented celebrity and new media influencer judges will choose the winner.
Like the President’s report, the Girls’ State of the Union will sum up the condition of the country—with special emphasis on the welfare of girls—and an outline of what the President’s legislative agenda and priorities for congress should be.
The winner, along with her parents or guardians, will be flown to Washington, DC to present her State of the Union report at the National Press Club in January.
We will launch the video contest on November 16, 2011 and end it on November 30, 2011.
