ATTENTION ALL GIRLS!
This year marks the seventh anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG 2018)! The United Nations needs YOU to help make this year’s celebration the greatest ever. They are looking for creative work by girls to be featured on October 11th at the United Nations. They want to know: What is it like to be a girl like you where you live? What advice would you give the next generation of girls in your community? How has your knowledge and experiences shaped who you are and who you will become? They want to hear your powerful voice!
