Essays should examine how discrimination affects women and girls in our country, our state, and in our community? Do race, nationality, socio-economic status, ability, or educational level play a role, and if so, how? What action can you take or have you taken, and what can we do as a community? Submissions will be accepted in two age groups: Junior Level for ages 13-17 and Senior Level for ages 18 and above. Essays should be no longer than 800 words and 1,200 words, respectively.
